COOPER - Despite not being an issue on the Commissioners Court agenda, security cameras continue to be a hot button topic for those in the Delta County Courthouse. 

The monitor hub for the cameras in both the Courthouse and Jail is located in the dispatch office of the Sheriffs Department. The money for the security cameras comes from a designated fund, not tax money.

According to Delta County Judge Herb Brookshire the security cameras are currently functioning although the Tax Assessor-Collector’s office and the Treasurer’s office are covered.

In order to resolve the issue, Tax Assessor-Collector Dawn Stewart and Treasurer Bonnie Hobbs said it needs to be readdressed on the next agenda. Judge Brookshire said if they would like to discuss it, they will have to sign up for the next meeting.

Court will meet again on Monday, March 12. Those desiring to speak will need to fill out the necessary form by noon Thursday, March 8.
