The new generator for the Pulaski County Health Department was to be delivered this week.
Maintenance Director Jeff Johnston told the commissioners Monday night that it will be stored until a company can properly install it. The Pulaski County council members approved the money for the generator at their meeting last week.
The commissioners previously approved the purchase of a similar self-starting generator for the county home in the amount of $3,500, but the council members did not bring the purchase request to a motion last week. Commissioner Terry Young expressed his frustration in that lack of action by the council.
Commission President Larry Brady mentioned that the county home does have a generator that is operational. However, it needs to be manually started. Young suggested that it creates a hazard with the way it is operated.
Brady said the issue could be brought up again with the county council members in a joint session on Monday, Oct. 13.
