Commissioners approve new digital election equipment and more

July 2, 2019


​A last-minute item to purchase new elections equipment passed unanimously at the July 2 regular meeting of the Hardin County Commissioners Court.
​“This had to be done today because the vendor extended a pretty decent discount to us,” County Judge W. McDaniel said.
​A $25,000 discount over the total purchase cost was due to terminate at the end of June but was extended until July 2 for the court to meet.
​“This includes digital ballot scanners, poll pads, and all relate apparatus and accessories,” he said.
​Enough equipment for 19 polling places at an estimated total cost of $298,754, was approved by the court.
​Tuesday was the first meeting of the commissioners in their newly updated courtroom.
​The new facility offers improved lighting, new audio and visual equipment, an ADA compliant podium, and comfortable audience seating.
​“The project came in on time and under budget,” McDaniel said.
​The judge said he would provide the total budgetary cost at the next meeting.
​In other news, commissioners approved a budget workshop for the 2020 Hardin County Budget to be held on Tuesday, July 8, at 1:30 pm.
​Hardin County Sheriff Mark Davis extended special recognition to Sgt. Anthony Flower as a 20 year veteran of the sheriff’s office.
​A criminal investigator, Flower received a certificate from Davis; who said: “Tony, Thanks for many, many years and hope for many more to come.”
​Kevin Cummings, Director of Adult Probation, recognized Beverly Segrest for 20 years of service to the department.
​“She is just as dedicated today as the day she started,” Cummings said, adding “I appreciate all of her hard work.”
​Lastly, Karl Wayne Hardy, of Roads and Bridges, was recognized for his ten years of service to the county.
​Hardy was absent from the meeting, but Commissioner L.W. Cooper, Jr. said: “He does the county a good job, and is much appreciated.”
