Carbon County Commissioners welcomed the newly-crowned Miss Carbon County at their meeting Wednesday.
The meeting started started with the opening of weed and mosquito offer bids, and the Seventh District Court complex remodeling projects. The Commission decided to have the county engineer review the bids further before making an official decision.
The commissioners next welcomed Alexis Matthews, or the news Miss Carbon County, to her new position. Matthews informed the county of her platform “Attitude is Everything” and explained how she is striving to give her positive platform speech in each classroom in Carbon County. The commission is excited to have Matthews represent the county for the next year.
Commissioners were also approached by representatives from Rocky Mountain Power in regards to land surveys, soil tests, and cultural, biological, and environmental studies on property owned by Carbon County. The studies would be conducted in areas by Helper and Wellington and would not impose on Carbon County residents. Rocky Mountain Power has been mailing approval letters for the operation to Carbon County homes since May of last year. The letters inform residents that approval by them would allow a “right of entry, not a right of way.” Commissioners agreed to discuss the matter further.
Motions were approved on the following:
County local PR campaign for S. Johansen.
