The jail has 108 inmates – 70 county and 38 state. Jenkins said this was the first time in 10 years that the jail’s county population has been this low. Magistrate Thomas Bouldin told Jenkins he was glad to hear the good news.
Jenkins also reported there was an intestinal bug going around the jail’s employees but so far it hadn’t hit the jail population. He said he had ordered the flu vaccine but it had not come in yet.
• A majority of Logan County’s Fiscal Court voted to allow a change order of $3,850 to KT Construction to put in a 1,000 gallon strainer septic tank to be placed in front of the current septic tank located at the new animal shelter.
According to Judge/Executive Logan Chick, the old system would not pass a plumbing inspection. Magistrate Dickie Carter was the lone no vote.
Carter reminded the court that at the beginning of the project when the lowest bid was accepted he said then there would be change orders coming in.
• Fiscal Court declared various items from the sheriff’s department and drug task force surplus. The court also declared a 1992 Ford E-350 ambulance surplus. This was the old van ambulance the county received back from Commonwealth Health Corporation (CHC) after they did not renew the emergency service contract with the county. The ambulance once belonged to Adairville before CHC took over for the Logan County Ambulance Service.
