LCSD to purchase two cars

The last Quorum Court meeting of 2010 was held with six court members making a quorum, and two items relating to the Lawrence County Sheriff's Department were covered.

Approval was given for two vehicles to be purchased for the department. The used 2007 vehicles will cost a combined total of $16,000. They will be paid for with funds already in the LCSD budget and included during "budget cleanup" at the beginning of 2011.

Sheriff Dan Ellison also informed the council of a write-up from the State Correction Department on jail standards. He said the inadequacies have been previously brought to the attention of the justices. The State Correction Department will address the Quorum Court directly in either January or February of 2011.

The last treasurer's report of this year was in "good standing," said County Judge Alex Latham. The final settlement was to be held on Tuesday. Latham added, "We are fortunate that our numbers are as solid as they are."

Several complete elected terms

Appreciation was expressed for the service of Bob Smith, Dean Davis and Craig Stone on the Quorum Court. Smith, Davis and Stone have completed their terms on the court.

Dan Ellison also expressed appreciation, saying, "We have been able to accomplish much in the sheriff's department thanks to the cooperation of the Quorum Court."

Latham, ending his 22-year stint as County Judge, said, "It has been a privilege and enjoyment, even when traveling through the bumpy times.
