DeWitt County Board Approves New Fire Alarm for County Jail

A new fire alarm system will be installed at the DeWitt County Jail.


DeWitt County Board Chair David Newberg indicates the Board approved the installation of a new fire alarm system at the DeWitt County Jail Thursday night. The current system has a maintenance contract that can only be conducted by the company that installed it. The new system will allow the County to bid out maintenance.



Also approved at the meeting was for the Highway Department's application to join Sourcewell Joint Purchase Program. Newberg says this is not a new program for the Highway Department but has to be renewed each year.



The DeWitt County Board approved the reappointment of Nelson Thorp and Dennis Streight to the DeWitt County Board of Review for a two-year term and reappointed John Workman to the Sheriff Merit Commission for a four-year term.
