Leading off the regular meeting Monday morning of the Cherokee County Commission, was the approval of a grant for School Resource Officers in the amount of $15,090.
The SRO Program is now fully integrated into the Cherokee County school system, and with an on-going need for funds to better serve the students of the county that grant provides an opportunity to maximize the success of the initiative.
In other business, the Commission approved the hiring of Patricia Moseley as Nutrition Van driver; there was also a job posting for an Animal Care Worker for the county; commission members also approved a Memorandum of Understanding with the local municipalities, for use of Election Machines in the upcoming election which will be held on August 25th.
The Commission also adopted a Resolution that will include a new process in regard to the applications for Garbage Pick-up Exemptions.Xerox Scan_08102020104238
