During the week of March 13, Phelps County commissioners:
• Heard from Larry Smith, Smith Sand & Gravel, LLC, who discussed contracting with the county to provide crushed brown rock. The commission solicited bids on this material earlier this year and no bids were received. Commissioners advised Smith that they would be interested in contracting with him for three years to purchase a minimum of 6,000 tons of the material each year. Prosecuting Attorney John Beger will draw up a contract.
