The Carbon County Commission filled a couple of spots on county boards during the April 2 meeting, but are still seeking applicants for another position.

Approved by the commission were Dan Allen to sit on the Tourism Tax Advisory Board and Rick Davis to be placed on the Scofield Reservoir Special Service District Board.

However the Tourism Tax Advisory Board had two positions open so the county will be advertising for another person to sit on that board.

The commission also opened bids for 300 tons of asphalt that the county road department will need in the future. The bids submitted included: Peak Asphalt for $460 per ton; Mountain State Asphalt for $419 per ton; and Aragon Asphalt and Emulsions for $442 per ton. The bids were turned over to county road supervisor Brad McCourt for evaluation.

The commission also heard from Shannon Pollack concerning an insurance program for county employees with Eagle Air Med so that if there is an emergency with an employee or one of their family members the a flight to a hospital if needed would be covered. Eagle Air Med recently placed a helicopter full time at Castleview Hospital so that flights do not need to come from the Wasatch Front to transport patients in emergencies.

Jason Llewelyn, the county's emergency services coordinator, also spoke to the commission about the 211 program. The 211 program allows people with physical or mental disabilities to register with the county so that in an emergency the county can be aware of their limitations and what might need to be done to help them.

"The program is in place and the state pays for all of it," said Llewelyn.

Commissioner Jae Potter pointed out that he program was voluntary for citizens, not mandatory.
