GROVETON — A request to replace the security system throughout the Trinity County Courthouse and Annex was delayed until budget time.

At the Trinity County Commissioners Court meeting on March 28, the county questioned the need to spend the whole system, which had not been budgeted, when it could just replace the broken camera.

County IT Director Sean Luce told the county he had four bids for replacement, which would upgrade the system, cover some blind spots and even provide night vision. He also said the current provider is inconsistent about replacing broken equipment.

However, Commissioner Steven Truss asked why the broken camera could not be replaced, and Commissioner Neal Smith suggested the bids be held until it was time to consider the next budget.

However, the court did approve a cabling request for the District Attorney’s Office, since it currently was using wifi connections that were inefficient.

The cost of the cabling will be $3,788.

In other business, the county:

•approved a bid for oil sand at $72.50 a ton from Bryan and Bryan Construction;

•approved personnel action forms;

•approved monthly financial reports;

•approved budget amendments for the purchase of software for the Justices of the Peace and the purchase of shelves for the District Clerk’s Office;

•approved items as surplus;

•approved the transfer of a Dell server from Deep East Texas Council of Governments to the county;

•approved a donation of $5,995 for a camera system and a donation of dog food for the Animal Shelter for the Sheriff’s Office;

•approved a resolution for federal off-system bridge programs administered by TxDOT; and

•discussed a plan to enlist a firm to demo and clean up derelict property within the county.
