County Judge’s Report

Wednesday, October 22nd, 2014

My report this week will be short, as I was out nearly all of last week for a surgical procedure. I am slowly recovering.

The regular monthly quorum court meeting was postponed a week, and will be held at 7 p.m. this coming Monday, October 27.


County Judge’s Report

Wednesday, October 1st, 2014

I was out of town most of last week attending meetings and conferences. I was here Monday, though, and started out the day at the road department as always. Later, there were several things I had to take care of in the office since I was going to be gone the rest of the week.

Road Department Activity
Pipes were delivered to Sullivan, Florence and Connie Veasey roads. Equipment was moved to Montongo and the shop.

Judge Akin’s Report

Friday, September 19th, 2014

Let me start off this week by reminding everyone that, this Friday, we will be sealing East Mt. Zion Road and a portion of Garnett Road, and we will be moving our equipment to Florence Road.

I’d like to ask everyone traveling in those areas to be mindful of our employees who are out there doing their best for you, and to allow for some extra time if you will be driving through those parts of the county.


County Judge’s Report

We had our regular quorum court meeting last Monday night, and at it, we discussed the possibility of implementing the Code Red emergency warning system for the county instead of tornado sirens. Code Red, a newer technology, would allow us to notify everyone of weather emergencies via either landline, cell phone or e-mail, not just those within hearing distance of the sirens. The Code Red system is less expensive than the sirens, and could be used for other situations in addition to bad weather, including such things as Amber and Silver Alerts, power outages, road closures, hazardous material spills, burn bans or any number of other situations. The cost would be 68 cents per county resident per year. We had some serious concerns about meeting the siren grant criteria and begin to look at our options. We are still studying the matter and gathering information, but we should be making a decision and moving forward in a few weeks.

County Judge ‘s Report

Friday, January 17th, 2014

We began last week by picking up the office building we had purchased through federal surplus in Little Rock. I am very pleased about this. We got the building, which has a bathroom, light fixtures, wiring and insulation, for only $3,000. We plan to use it at the landfill, where it will replace the worn-out FEMA trailer that was not quite meeting the ADEQ’s standards. I had my standard Monday-morning meeting at the road department, and performed a marriage ceremony. I also met with (more…)
