Nolan County recently received an award from the Texas Comptroller of Public Accounts, which was acknowledged during Monday morning's meeting of the county commissioners.
Judge Tim Fambrough explained that the Leadership Circle - Gold Member award recognizes local government entities who are financially transparent. They set the example for others to follow by sharing their information in a user-friendly format, notably online.
County employees Judy Kaspar and Jeanne Wells were recognized for their work which led to the receiving of the award.
Also during the meeting, approval was given to pay Billy M. Glenn three weeks' worth of vacation, as well as allow him to receive overtime pay until a second janitorial employee is hired.
Due to the fact that Glenn is the sole janitor at the courthouse, he is unable to take time off. The overtime pay will come from an account that was previously used for a second, part-time janitor.
Thus, some dialogue was held by the commissioners on the possibility of hiring a part-time janitor. Additionally, Glenn was praised for his faithfulness to his job.
Furthermore, approval was given for the District Clerk to purchase two new computers and two new scanners for her office. The items will be paid for out of her respective records management fund, which has ample funds to cover the cost.
The reappointment of Cindy Stroman to the Library Board was approved, while approval was also given to leave the burn ban for Nolan County off until the next meeting. The minutes for the November 25 and 26 meetings were approved, and a sole report from the Government Trapper was received.
