WALKER COUNTY COMMISSIONER BEBE HEISKEL RECENTLY SIGNED AN EMERGENCY RESOLUTION FOR ROOF REPAIR ON THE COURTHOUSE JUDICIARY ANNEX AND ANNEX NUMBER THREE.  THE FORMER FUNERAL HOME AND CLINIC BUILDINGS HAVE SUSTAINED WATER DAMAGE IN RECENT WEEKS… AS WELL AS DAMAGE TO ELECTRICAL SYSTEMS. 

THE ROOF REPAIR COSTS WERE ESTIMATED AT 200-THOUSAND DOLLARS.  AND SHE RENEWED THE CONTRACT WITH SECURUS TECHNOLOGIES.  THAT COMPANY PROVIDES SECURE TELEPHONE ACCESS FOR PRISONERS IN THE WALKER COUNTY JAIL.  THE SYSTEM ALSO GENERATES SOME INCOME FOR THE COUNTY’S GENERAL FUND… ABOUT 140-THOUSAND DOLLARS THIS YEAR.
