The Cherokee County Sheriff’s Department may get five new vehicles pending action by the county commissioners court at its 10 a.m. Monday meeting.
Sheriff James Campbell said the combined cost will be less than $150,000.
“There are three for patrol and two for investigators. Three will be the police package and two will be regular vehicles,” Campbell said. “There’s a $25,000 limit on each vehicle.”
Campbell will ask for permission to seek bids for the cars and deliver the monthly sheriff’s department report at Monday’s meeting.
The commissioners will also discuss:
• laying utility lines in each precinct.
• an interlocal agreement with Carlisle Independent School District to conduct a bond or board election;
• an interlocal agreement with Jacksonville ISD to conduct a bond election;
• approval of the Cherokee County 2010 tax roll;
• permission for Jacksonville Economic Development Corporation to enter into a contract with Nelson Blending;
• a petition to dissolve Cherokee County Development District No. 1. The district was reformed, rescinded and reformed again this year due to unqualified members appointed to the district;
• approval of the 2011 Cherokee County holidays; and
• the consent agenda, including monthly reports from the county auditor and Precincts 2 and 4 constables, approval of the minutes of previous commissioners court meetings and authorizing the payment of the bills.
The Cherokee County Commissioners Court meets at 10 a.m. the second and fourth Monday of each month in the county courtroom in the county courthouse in Rusk. Meetings are open to the public, though no time for public comment is included on the agenda.
