Resolution for hiring procedures for courthouse security accepted

December 5, 2017 GMT

A resolution regarding hiring procedures for uniformed security for the courthouse was brought to the Lincoln County Commissioners by the security committee Monday.

Before approval, some of the language in the resolution needed to be modified. Commissioner Joe Hewgley and deputy county attorney Joe Wright spoke at length about these changes.

Wright said he found several cases of “excessive language that’s unnecessary” to the resolution. “I’m trying to remove that,” he said.

Some terms were also altered, such as the use of the word “bid” versus “proposal.” Hewgley was firm that these changes need to be made throughout the resolution to be totally clear.

“If it’s changed in one part, it should be changed in every part,” Hewgley said.

A modified version of the resolution was accepted.
