A radio tower for the new 911 center at Mt. Zion has been ordered, and the facility could be up and running this summer. Following the construction of the building, much of the work has been done by volunteers, according to 911 Director Dave Johnson.
Dorcas Cain resigned from the Calhoun Library Board and was replaced by Rena Bowman. The commission appointed Grace Richards to another term on the board.
Work is expected to commence soon on the replacement of the 1940 circa windows in the Calhoun courthouse, a contract has been let through a $56,000 grant. Windows will also be replaced in the old jail building.
The commission discussed looking at eliminating the county's employee handbook, allowing each elected official to determine their own employment policies and procedures.
The handbook was developed several years ago to bring parity to county employee matters, including salaries and benefits.
The handbook issue will be on the agenda at the next meeting.
Commission president Larry McCallister said the county is ending the fiscal year in the black, with the bills paid.
The next commission meeting is June 5 at 9 a.m.
