Meeting agenda: County to get two more donations for bullet-proof vests

By Roxanne Thompson
Two more donations have been made to the Bullet-Proof Vest Fund at the Limestone County Sheriff’s Office for sheriff’s deputies and will be considered for approval by commissioners court next Tuesday.
Commissioners will consider the donations at their June 12 meeting and also consider commissioning a survey of the county, approving several transactions with the company that sold the county its new Sheriff’s Office SUVs, award hay-cutting rights at the prison and take care of other county business.
As for the vest donations, all donations to county entities must be approved by commissioners, but they are very likely to accept the gifts, both of which are being made anonymously, one for $1,000 and a second for $250.
The court will also consider having a survey of the county’s boundaries and topography made, which is required for a grant the county is pursuing.
In other business, commissioners will consider making a down payment of $30,000 to the American National Leasing Company, which is the company from which the county bought new Tahoes last fall for the Sheriff’s Office, and which were delivered and added to the fleet this past spring.
