Under the new management of Ben McCandliss, General Manager and Mattie Williams, Director of Sales, Holiday Inn Express in Sweetwater welcomes former and new customers to see the renovations taking place at the hotel and to enjoy their many amenities available.
During the Nolan County Commissioners meeting on Monday morning, approval was given to increase the authorized number of reserve deputies (non-paid) in the Sheriff's Office from four to six.
Sheriff David Warren stated that recently, more people have stepped up to serve in this role. While they serve on a voluntary basis, the non-paid reserve deputies take part in the full academy, just like a paid deputy.
As a result, the reserve deputies have the same power and authority. However, the decision to increase the number was required to go before the commissioners for approval.
