NEW BOSTON, Texas—Bowie County may be a little closer to getting more money for its Drug Court system and its Community Supervision and Corrections Department.
Bowie County commissioners agreed Monday to reapply for $250,000 in Drug Court grant funds and for about $52,000 in Community Supervision and Corrections Department funds. The CSCD funds will specifically go toward preventing violent domestic crimes against women. Both grant applications will be for state funds available for the next fiscal year (2018-19).
In other business, the Commissioners Court reappointed Emergency Services District Commissioners Randy Mansfield and Kenny Turner to another two-year term on the county's Emergency Services District No. 4 Board. They also agreed to buy property at 902 W. Front St. in DeKalb, Texas, for the county's newly relocated Justice of the Peace Precinct 3 office.
The court additionally decided to appoint Wake Village City Administrator Jim Roberts to the Bowie County Housing Authority Board of Commissioners. Roberts will replace Mike Burke, who recently retired.
