County receives award for financial reporting


Corsicana — Pct. 1 Racial profiling report presented

  Pct. 1’s constable is exempt from filing a report since Constable Mike Davis does not routinely make traffic stops. Paperwork filed.

Proclamation for Mosaic approved

  Commissioners approved a proclamation designating Feb. 19 as Mosaic Appreciation Day in Navarro County.

Request for salvage approved

  Commissioners approved a request to declare two county trucks as salvage for Pct. 2 Commissioner Dick Martin.

Bridge repair approved

  A bridge on NECR 2120 in Pct. 2 will be repaired by Neyland Bridge. Recent rains have compromised the bridge, said Pct. 2 Commissioner Dick Martin.

Road bond released

  A bond posted by Dallas Production for work on SECR 3110 and SECR 3150 has been released after a road inspection after work was done.

HIDTA grants, application approved

  Commissioners approved grant paperwork for the North Texas High Intensity Drug Trafficking Area. The funds are passed through Navarro County and to the agency for its work in North Texas.

Justice Center security work OK’d

  Sheriff Elmer Tanner told commissioners he had been informed that security alarm buttons in the Justice of Peace offices and courtroom were not functioning. Apparently, they had not been repaired after storms damaged the system in the Justice Center and the courthouse, he said. The courthouse system was repaired after the storms, but not the Justice Center. Commissioners authorized the repairs, and the addition of buttons in the Sheriff’s Office as well. JP Connie Hickman said the work, estimated to cost about $3,000, would be paid for out of the JP Technology Fund.
