Department Heads update Commisssioners
The County Commissioners met on Feb. 15 to hear updates from department heads for the last month and a conversation with Sheriff Mike Hollinshed about contracts for the jail.
Sheriff Hollinshed was asked to discuss contracts on the jail's medical services contract. The Sheriff's concern is that with contract renewal being so close that they will not have enough time to go into detail about hiring a new business. County Attorney Buzz Grant informed the board and the sheriff that they have until September to either renew the contract with the current vendor or to hire a new one.
Commissioner Bud Corbus said that there are other entities interested in the contract and it warrants an open conversation about the county's options.
