Judge informs large group during State of the County

By Cindy Roller

Cooper – A recent address before Delta County citizens covered a variety of topics, including a possible closing to the county jail.

Judge Herb Brookshire made the remarks before a crowd of about 50 during his State of the County address last week as part of the Chamber's Business After Hours event.

The Judge is working to negotiate with area jails so that Delta County inmates can be housed elsewhere. He outlined that government in their jurisdiction is different from the rest of the state, with Delta County the 52nd smallest in Texas.

Citizens were also informed of a recently awarded grant worth $36,000 to improve law enforcement communications.
