Hopkins County Commissioners’ Court took no action on the courtroom to be built at the Law Enforcement Center/County Jail when met Thursday, May 24th, instead of Monday, May 28th, due to the Memorial Day Remembrance. The courthouse and all county offices will be closed for Memorial Day. The commissioners did not accept bids to build the new facility pending further discussion.
They did approve a Civic Center repay of around $25,000 for a vehicle purchased for the civic center, $10,000-plus paid from the Sheriff’s Commissary fund and the repayment of $41,000 from forfeiture funds for a vehicle, K9, and other money owed the county.
Commissioners did accept two checks totaling $2,500 to extend an oil road in Precinct 1. The gift to the county was made by two individuals who live on the county road.
May 24, 2018 was proclaimed Lee Glenn Day in Hopkins County.
