Sheriff's department awarded federal funds

GREENVILLE — The Hunt County Sheriff’s Office was approved Tuesday by the Hunt County Commissioners Court to participate in the Federal Equitable Sharing Program for Federally Forfeited Proceeds. The move will allow the department make dposits into a Chase bank account named HCSO Federal Forfeiture Account.

According to Hunt County Sheriff Randy Meeks, the department needed to open a second account because of regulations stating that federal and state seized funds cannot be mixed.

“We have some federal funds that are due to us in the amount of 80 percent of $3,200 and 80 percent of $32,000,” he said. “We are doing this because we are not allowed to mix federally seizured funds with state seizured funds.”

Both Hunt County auditor Jimmy Hamilton and Hunt County Fire Marshal Richard Hill were reappointed to their positions through the 2013 year.

Also approved during the meeting was a measure to allow the committee seeking architectural service for the north and south steps of the courthouse to proceed into interviews.

“There has been a committee formed and it has met,” Dianne Terry, purchasing agent for Hunt County, said. “Now they want to move forward into the interview phase with an architectural firm.”

County Road 3126 in Precinct 3 and county road 4402 in Precinct 4 were both moved to public roads, no longer to be maintained by the county.
