The Limestone County Commission praised Chief Financial Officer Emily Ezell and her team for a “perfect” audit.

“Emily Ezell has a history of perfect audits, so I would just like to thank her and her staff. It’s not an easy thing to do, and she usually does, so I appreciate her efforts in this regard” said District 2 Commissioner Danny Barksdale.

“I want to thank Emily for all her dedication. We don’t tell our employees enough, sometimes, that we appreciate what they do,” added District 3 Commissioner Jason Black.

Bushing, weeding, mowing and spraying are ongoing in the county, and commissioners are reminding citizens to be careful and watch out for crews working.

District 4 Commissioner LaDon Townsend provided an update on Chapman Hollow. Depending on the weather, the project is coming to an end. The Dupree Hollow Bridge is under development, but progress is steady.

In District 1, Daryl Sammet reported that the bridge over Thach Road has reopened.

“Right now we’re in the time to get settled, and we’ll put the running surface there as soon as we get that part done,” he said.
