Request for salvage approved

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

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.
