New Courtroom, Voting Equipment Priorities on Commissioners’ Court Monday Agenda

Smiley face

Two items on the agenda for Hopkins County Commissioners’ Court Monday, January 8, 2018 have been on the back burner for some time but the court is expected to move forward with both items.

The Commissioners will consider the approval of building a new 100 seat courtroom that will be attached to the Hopkins County Jail. According to County Judge Robert Newsom there will be no increase in taxes to pay for the new addition. He told KSST News that the new courtroom will be built using money the county already has and will be a part of what is often referred to as the new county jail. The court will also approve the employment of a consultant/architect to supervise the building of the new courtroom.

For some time Debbie Shirley, County Clerk, has wanted to improve the voting equipment in the county and the court will consider and approve voting equipment for the clerk’s office.

A review of the Racial Profiling Report will be presented by Constable, Precinct 1, Norman Colyer.  Also on the agenda are a number of routine items.
