The Cavalier County Commissioners met Tuesday, November 17 to tend to its usual business, conduct the county delinquent tax sale, and reappoint board members to the Northern Valley Human Service Zone.
Road Supervisor Terry Johnston presented updated maps by district for the snowplow routes. There were indicators where small stretches could be done by another route. Drivers are to communicate with each other and assist each other where they can. Johnston reported that the spots that were dug out and filled with the ground asphalt/concrete mix are performing very well. It is still packed solid and has lightened in color with time. He is hopeful that it will continue to work well through the spring.
