Light Agenda Facing Commission Committees

The standing committees of the Putnam County commission face a relatively light agenda as they meet on Valentine's Day.  The planning committee will consider a request from the sheriff's department to transfer two vehicles that are being taken out of service from the county to the Baxter Police Department.  They'll also be talking about what to do with the few furnishings left behind when the Election Commission moved to a new office a couple of years ago.  At least one county commissioner wants to give the portable office partitions and other items to the school system transportation department.  But some say other county department heads should also have the opportunity to claim the items.  Meanwhile, the county's fiscal review committee will be going over budget amendments and quarterly reports.
