County using technology to make things better

Limestone County commissioners plan to signifi cantly upgrade the recording system for the county courtroom since the current one may be near its end of life. Commissioners made that decision at their March 23 meeting and also approved a data contract with the State Health and Human Services Department and payment on a matching grant through the Heart of Texas Council of Governments for a program just completed. The audio-visual court reporting system is used notonly for county court proceedings, County Judge Daniel Burkeen told the commissioners, but also used for recording commissioners court meetings and for teleconferences.

County rate for holding city inmates may rise

Limestone County may raise what it charges municipalities to hold their inmates after realizing it has not raised its rates for about 15 years. Commissioners addressed this issue at their March 23 meeting and also dealt with several other financial matters concerning the Law Enforcement Center, which includes the jail and Sheriff’s Offi ce. “Our contracts with municipalities have not been renewed in years,” County Judge Daniel Burkeen told the court. “We house those for $36.50 a day, which is an early 2000 rate for the cities. I don’t know if we even have a written contract with some of them, so we wanted to adjust that rate for them and to clarify in the contracts that the municipalities are responsible for the medical expenses of the inmates.”
