The Quay County Commission met Monday in the Quay County Courthouse. All three commissioners Brad Bryant, Mike Cherry and Sue Dowell were present.
The Commission took the following actions:
• Approved a bid for $118,000 to buy rolling equipment for the county roads department.
• Approved payment of $2,000 in assessment fee to support a new yield study of Ute Lake, as requested by the Ute Water Commission, which includes representatives from Quay, Curry and Roosevelt counties. The fee is based on a charge of $2 per acre foot of water. The water commission seeks to conduct a new study to supplement one done in 1994 to answer questions about water available from Ute Lake, in light of changing conditions, according to Richard Primrose, county manager.
• Agreed to purchase a vehicle for transporting inmates for the Quay County Detention Center.
• Conducted an executive session about litigation filed by Christina Fleming and Drake Swenson.
