New E-911 Center Progressing

By Staff | Aug 19, 2020

The Tyler County Commission met on Tuesday, August 11 at 9 a.m. The meeting began with the approval of the previous minutes, exonerations, and the fiduciary report.

Candy Warner was the first to address the Commission, requesting permission to hold jury selection at the school so the process could be properly social distanced. Following the selection, the trial would then move back to the Courthouse. A motion was made and approved to allow the selection to take place in the high school auditorium.

Next, Sheriff Brian Weigle presented a quote on the rifles to finish equipping the department. He reported he would like to move quickly on the purchase because scopes are 40 percent off at this time. The rifles would be purchased from Town Police Supply. A motion was carried to approve the purchase of the rifles.

James Swiger was next on the agenda, presenting the Tyler County E-911 project review. Swiger reported they are about two weeks away from putting the project out for bid. There was speculation on the amount of visitor parking needed. E-911 Director Josh Fulks reported the original nine spaces could drop to four or five.

Swiger reported he would return to the next meeting for the final approval and to advertise the project for bid.

Commissioner Mike Smith gave an update on the TCPSD. He reported they are moving forward on the sewer plant upgrade.

Following the approval of the budget revisions and bills, the meeting was adjourned.
