Sheriff to ask for substation

GREENVILLE — Hunt County Sheriff Randy Meeks will be putting forth a proposal to place a Sheriff’s Office Substation in the southern  part of Hunt County during Tuesday’s  Commissioners Court Meeting.

“I have brought this up before,” he said. “But it was going to be very costly so it wasn’t approved. This time we have found a way reduce the prices greatly.”

the Walmart in Quinlan has allowed the department to house its command center in the parking lot, which the sheriff said has received a positive responce.

“We’ve had a real good response from the citizens and our officers,” Meeks said. “They are able to write up their reports from there.”

According to Meeks, the substation would be located between Quinlan and West Tawakoni on Highway 276. He said the building would need some renovations, but would save the county money in the long run.

“It is an excellent location,” he said. “We would save on gas for officers and be able to bring prisoners there and leave them until the morning.”

Meeks said he believes the Commissioners will most likely pass the proposal on Tuesday.

“I believe the Commissioners will see the money saved and the good that this station will bring,” he said. “And I am sure they will approve it.”
