The first one was for $16,247.82 and the second was on an EECBG (Economic Energy Community Block Grant) for $91,604.53.
Commissioners also approved all of the road approach and opening agreements submitted by the Montanan Alberta Tie Line (MATL).
There were 16 roads affected and they were bundled into one motion and included Loess, Granite, Healy Spring N, Midway W, Overpass, Chance, Circle S Wiest, Armstrong, Bullhead, Willow Rounds, Christiaens, Williams, Dry Forks W, Dupuyer and Coalmine.
The commissioners had a discussion on an Intercap Loan application which was approved to cover the Community/Senior Center.
A week of outdoor practices kicked off the season and last week’s indoor practices definitely helped condition the team for season play.
This Saturday, the boys and girls varsity teams will see their first court action at home for the annual Conrad Invitational Dual Tournament.
Coach Kendall Griggs said, “The team has a long way to go, but has great strengths to build on from last season.”
He continued to say, “I expect quite a bit from my returning varsity players, both in match play but more importantly at practice, developing their game and honing their skills.”
Coach Griggs is assisted by Coach Greg Jensen, the guru of tennis in Conrad. “Coach Jensen brings so much to our team. He built and maintained the program and continues to come every day with enthusiasm and an intensity to teach the life-long game of tennis,” said Griggs.

With only a few people in attendance at Monday’s regular council meeting, alderman Wendy Judisch made some local history for a second time, being appointed Mayor of Conrad.
She was also the first woman to be elected as a city council member.
Before she took office, council members on a 4-0 vote, reluctantly accepted the letter of resignation of Mayor John Shevlin. After it was accepted, alderman Wally McHenry commented, “Conrad has become a better place to live.” The outgoing mayor echoed that, saying, “It’s (Conrad) a great place to live.” He added he would be available to help and make the transition go smoothly.
Judisch was nominated by Karla Breding with a second by Wally McHenry and came into office on a 3-1 vote. She did not vote for herself.
