The Ashley County Quorum Court heard an update from the jail committee during the quorum’s regular meeting. 

Justice Rhonda Pippen told the quorum that the radio repeaters that had been on top of a building at Georgia Pacific had to be moved recently.

Georgia Pacific notified several groups in recent months to let them know that the certain buildings and boilers would be demolished. 

Some of the communication devices discussed when the announcement was made months ago included the school’s bus garage transmitters as well as the sheriff’s office repeaters.

Pippen said the repeaters were located on top of a toilet paper building, but had now been moved temporarily to a location in Felsenthal.

Pippen also told the quorum that there was an issue with doors at the jail that needed remodeling or restructuring so they can get in and out without opening it up for inmates. Pippen said the sheriff would have bids to present at the next jail committee meeting. 

In other news:

-The county’s new garbage trucks will arrive next week.

Earlier this month the county was using a truck and trailer to pick up trash because both trucks were down. They were both repaired to patch the county through until the new trucks could come in. 

-The quorum will have a budget clean-up meeting at 2:30 p.m. Jan. 31.
