HAMILTON — The Marion County Commission met on Monday, Dec. 18, and voted on changes to the new jail, storm shelters and new metal detectors.
The commission voted to approve change orders for the Marion County Jail totaling $47,480.
“These items are necessary changes to certify the security features of electrical enhancements,” said commission chairman Keith Nichols.
The board also voted to approve another measure that would save the county about $45,000 through another change order involving the purchase of communications equipment.
The commission also approved a measure allowing county employees to move between job positions within the county to fill different roles as necessary.
The commission then heard a recommendation from EMA director Eric Terrell to seek bids for new above-ground community storm shelters for Shottsville and Bear Creek using grant funding.
