April 10-- The Montgomery County Commission is set to interview candidates for county manager.
The commissioners met in executive session Monday and decided on four applicants who will be interviewed for the job next week. Interim manager Franklin Brantley did not apply.
Brantley said he expects the Commission will take some action to fill the vacant Emergency Management position at its May meeting.
In other actions, the board approved a purchase order policy to help track county expenditures and approved building improvements to the county maintenance shop and repairs to the county library.
Brantley told commissioners the first transportation sales tax check in the amount of $13,000 had arrived from the state and recommended some of it be used to repair potholes and for striping of the Conway-McDonald Road.
The county will also award resurfacing contracts for three miles on the South Old River Road, seven-tenths of a mile on North Old River Road and four-tenths of a mile on Round Hole Lane.
