Culvert report detailed for County Commission

Lyon County commissioners had a short action meeting Thursday.

Commissioners reviewed the 2013 timber culvert inspection report. Assistant County Engineer Jim Brull (BREWL) says the department is phasing out the timber culverts because the wood rots and it's becoming more difficult to find maintenance materials.

Currently the county has 23 such culverts, but seven have been identified for replacement and another three are under consideration.
