How to go about hiring a new road supervisor for Lincoln County is an item to be discussed at the next Board of Highway Commissioners meeting set for Aug. 19 at the courthouse in Pioche.

It will be discussed then if a committee is to be formed, or some other method is to be followed. Several positions in the road department are open for laborers, operators,  supervisor, and a new position of project manager.

Acting supervisor Shane Cheeney told members of the board at the Aug. 5 meeting, to date there have been 30 applications for operators received, 27 for laborers, five for project manager, and three for the supervisor position.
