Nita Keenan
Stafford County Clerk
A dusty road in Stafford County received attention during the Stafford County commission meeting.

The Stafford County Board of County Commissioners met in regular session on June 30 in the Commission Room in the Annex. Chairman Grimmett called the meeting to order at 8:30 a.m. Present: Clayton Grimmett, Todd Wycoff and Bryce Garner. Julie Lyon was present. 

Road Supervisor Phillip Nusser met with the board to discuss a dust problem with a stretch of road that runs by Larry and Harold Tanner’s residences. Magnesium chloride has been applied at county expense in the past to help with the dust issue.
