WEDOWEE - Due to the Fourth of July holiday, Randolph County Commission held a combined meeting on Monday. Most of the business on the agenda was generally housekeeping items.

Voting house repairs

With elections coming up in less than a year, the commission voted to make repairs on two voting locations. At Bacon Level, the fascia board and roof have rotted. At Wehadkee, the weatherhead post that connects the power meter to the building is bent, and the building has roof damage.

Road repairs

The commission approved a low bid from Ingram Paving in Dadeville for work on County Roads 127, 286, 35 and 253. Another road will be added before work begins later on in the summer. The work includes chipping and sealing each road. In other road updates, it was noted a portion of County Road 651 will be temporarily closed due to the poor condition of the road. Residents have been advised and will be taken care of while the road is closed.

Courthouse security

In an effort to further tighten security at the courthouse, the commission agreed to require all employees to obtain an identification badge and wear it at all times. The cost will be approximately $300 for supplies, and the EMA will make the pictures and the badges.


- The commission will meet on July 22 at 1 p.m. with Wedowee Utility Board concerning sharing the cost to upgrade the sanitary lift station.

- The commission will hold Fiscal Year 2020 budget hearings on July 30 and Aug. 1 from 3 to 5 p.m.
