Anderson County commissioners will likely be meeting for the final time in 2006 when they conduct a special meeting Thursday at the Anderson County Courthouse Annex.

The meeting is set to begin at 9:30 a.m. in the County Courtroom.

On Thursday, the court is expected to hear a request from Anderson County Sheriff Greg Taylor who asked the court last week that 2006 vacation time for some of his employees be extended through the end of March.

In other business Thursday, the court is expected to:

CONSIDER budget amendments;

CONSIDER payroll and bills;

CONSIDER utilities crossing county roads;

CONSIDER property and liability renewal with St. Paul Insurance (Stewart Kenderdine) and take action as necessary.

AWARD bids for septic rock and base stone, corrugated metal culvert pipe, road oil (refined), cracked fuel oil, railroad tank car culverts, office supplies, asphalt treated road material, bituminous cold patch material, asphaltic concrete hot mix and gasoline and diesel fuel for 2007.

HEAR from Jerry Guy of Gallagher and Associates relating to insurance benefits and take action as necessary.
