Commissioners reinstate burn ban, healthcare clinic in sight
County Judge Souli Shanklin and all of the Commissioners held regular court Tuesday morning. As always, Court began with everyone in unison reciting the Pledge of Allegiance and this time Commissioner Kenneth Reed led the room in prayer.
A contract with Kimble County Hospital to open a rural health care clinic in Edwards County was discussed but no action could be taken at this time because hospital representative Duke Young was not present. However, things are looking positive that a contract is in the works and healthcare in Edwards County really might happen. As per discussion, perhaps Dr. Jackson and a physician’s assistant with Kimble County Hospital will be able to provide care to Edwards County upwards of three days per week, in the near future.
In the meantime, the commissioners opened three sealed bids for the new roof for the Dr. Chester Todd medical building with COVID-19 grant funds. Plateau Metal Buildings was awarded the bid, and the grant money must be spent by December 30th which means construction will soon be underway on the building.
