The Lamar County Commission met Monday morning with all present.

Tyler Covington, AIG representative, spoke about retirement insurance options available to county employees and how to optimize benefits.

In hopes that she will accept, Barbara Reeves, formerly on the C3 of Northwest Alabama board, was appointed to serve as a non-voting member on the West Alabama Economic Development board to represent the north end of the county.

Chairman Johnny Rogers said a different insurance representative would be in town the following day to talk to county employees planning for retirement.

The commission plans to work on the Annex building wall left exposed after the demolition of the Clearman building. Roof Mart donated the metal.

Thursday at 5:30 p.m. there will be a Workforce Development meeting at Bevill in Fayette.

Commissioners reported from their districts.

Mike Roney said District 1 has been "busy, busy, busy" repairing roads and removing trees.

Mitchell Puckett said they have roads washed out in District 2 and will be able to make greater headway once they get drier weather.

Terry Roberts said District 3 is spot grading and hauling gravel but their water project has slowed due to rain.

Gary Beard said District 4 is working on the third round of bush hogging. He added they have done a good job on the ditches but still need to install some culverts.

With no other items on the agenda, the meeting adjourned.
