Crimestoppers BBQ/Auction, September 10th

By Tom Hawkins

The Limestone County Crimestoppers Annual Barbecue and Auction will be held on Saturday, September 10, at the Enge-Washing Intermediate School which is located at 701 S. Ellis Street in Groesbeck.

The Limestone County Crimestoppers was organized many years ago. The annual barbecue and auction has always been its yearly fundraiser and major source of income. The organization was formed to assist all law enforcement officers of Limestone County in their daily effort to control crime.

The officers and Board of Directors of the Crimestoppers stated in a communication, “The work of the Crimestoppers has all been possible because individuals and merchants in the County have supported our auction by donating items and/or making a monetary donation. Both types of donations are tax deductible. We appreciate your support throughout the past years.”

Court makes budget cuts, finds other needed expenses

By Roxanne Thompson

Staff Writer

During Limestone County’s third budget workshop, held Aug. 23 after the regular commissioners court meeting, court members found a few places to cut but learned of other expenses they may need to address. Two positions had a salary supplement eliminated and two cuts at the Road and Bridge Department were confirmed; the county may need to get expert advice on software issues, and the court heard plans to fund the digitization of district court records.

Regarding the elimination of salary supplements:

• County Judge Daniel Burkeen’s Administrative Assistant Lori Moore has been receiving a salary supplement of $2,800 annually for working as salary coordinator. Since Moore will soon be leaving county employment to work with her husband, the commissioners agreed to add those duties to the job description and not pay the new employee a supplement.
