Commission President A.J. Thomas explained Thrasher does multiple services in house, so they won’t have to hire additional help to do any outside jobs. It will all be done by one company. Thomas said they believe they will be getting a lot of bang for their buck with Thrasher Engineering.

We do feel that our dollar is going to go a long way with Thrasher. So, we’re pretty excited to get that project started and we hope to make significant progress in 2022.
