Douglas County commissioners (minus one) tackled bills, budgets, grants and more during their regularly scheduled meeting Tuesday.

Here are a few of the day's highlights.

The board:

• Explored the possibility of a public health partnership with other counties.

• Signed off on Pope/Douglas Solid Waste Management's 2009 budget; a 9 percent increase over 2008.

• Approved a roughly $37,000 federal grant for two local schools to install and update their security camera systems.

• Authorized a permit for a new indoor/outdoor year-round golf teaching center and driving range, set to be built south of Interstate 94 near LaGrand Township.
