Photo by Mac Shadix The November 29 meeting of the Leon County Commissioners Court heard an annual update of the county Extension Education Club’s activities. During the open comments, members of the club presented the court with a demonstration check for $232,831.08 which they told the court represented the value of volunteer hours that club members had donated during the last year.

Dr. Donald Kelm provided an annual update about extension programming in Leon County.

The Commissioners accepted the City of Leona’s ordinance declaring the results of the local option liquor election held on 11-07-17. The sale of alcohol was allowed by the election.

The commissioners discussed a Red Cross smoke alarm program that was supposed to kick off in Buffalo and Flo. A road use agreement for County Road 119 was approved for ninety days.

The commissioners took the needed action to approve the Occupancy Tax Recipient Agreement.

Two lots at Hilltop Lakes were sold for $750. each to David Lundell and Dennis Maday respectively.

A contract with LGS for Data processing services for the county judge’s office was approved at a rate of $197. per month.

Judge Byron Ryder told the court that while, “We still have got them on the run.”, public support for the fight against the high-speed rail is still needed. “They are still pushing this thing.” Ryder said.

There was no discussion of the Expo or any associated projects.

Judge Ryder asked for and received permission to purchase 100 new, sealed blankets for $3.00 each to store for emergency use.

In response to a request for a new prisoner transport van at the last meeting, Commissioner Joey Sullivan made a motion that the current Extension Service van be turned over to the Sheriff's office and that a new van be purchased for the Extension Service. Sheriff Kevin Ellis was present and told the court that they could “take care of “ transferring the prisoner cage to the extension van.
