The Adair County Fiscal Court held a brief Special Called meeting this morning, and approved a payment for a new Mack Truck, a budget transfer to pay a bill to the Forest Fire Protection Fund, to open a bank account for the Alcoholic Beverage Commission, to advertise for bid for rock and blacktop, chip and seal, and seal oil and concrete for the road department, and to consider CJE Mike Stephens' choice for a vacancy on the Columbia/Adair Utilities Commission.

Judge Stephens nominated Jr., a resident Adair County's Fifth Magisterial District.
