Putnam County Commission To Meet

The Putnam County commission has a number of items to consider when they meet in regular session Tuesday night.  Auditors are recommending that the county do away with its Parks and Recreation board, making the Parks department another function of county government, operated in a way similar to that of the Solid Waste department. The first step toward doing that is the publication of a notice that announces the dissolution of the P & R board.  The commission will be voting on whether to do that.  They'll also be voting on whether to get out of a contract with a software company out of Texas, which had been given a half million dollar bid to write a software package for the local court system. Technology director Randy Porter says the company was asking for more money than they had originally said it would take to do the job.
