Highway Department
General info

The Hickman County Highway Commission is comprised of seven members, elected for four-year terms. The Board meets on the first Monday of each month and at other special times as needed. Meetings are normally held at the Highway Department office, located at 187 Highway 50 East in Centerville.

The Highway Superintendent is the head of the highway department and has general control over the location, relocation, construction, reconstruction, repair and maintenance of the county road system, including county roads, bridges and ferries, but not roads and bridges under the supervision of the state Department of Transportation. However, counties which have private acts, such as Hickman, providing for popularly elected road commissioners which have general control over location, construction and maintenance of county roads remain under their private act concerning these matters.

The Highway Superintendent may employ a qualified secretary and other office personnel necessary to handle correspondence, maintain accurate records of receipts and expenditures, equipment, supplies, materials, maintenance performed, and other items necessary to operate the highway department. He/She also determines the total number of employees, personnel policy and work hours, job classifications, and policies and wages within the classifications. The compensation established should be consistent with pay in similar services in the county and surrounding area. In addition, the wages must comply with the federal Fair Labor Standards Act regarding minimum wage and overtime compensation.
