Stonewall County struggles to find road superintendent

News Staff's picture

Although Stonewall Commissioners have been actively seeking a replacement for the county’s road superintendent since former road foreman Don Nail’s resignation some months ago, the county has been unable to find a suitable candidate to fill the position permanently.

While the Stonewall County Road and Bridge Department still has a complement of employees and equipment for maintaining the county’s roadways, an individual to supervise those employees, maintain the equipment, and be accountable for the department has proven difficult. Nevertheless, the work must continue, and commissioners have considered assuming road supervisor duties until a replacement can be found.

The commissioners did agree during Monday’s meeting to withdraw the requirement that a potential applicant must have a CDL license. The court modified the policy requiring a pre-employment CDL in 2018 when the county struggled hiring road hands. Judge Ronnie Moorhead suggested the court consider looking at hiring an individual that met other requirements regardless of them having a CDL.
