District Clerk getting help for collections
By Tony Farkas
GROVETON — Trinity County Commissioners approved some temporary help for the District Clerk’s Office in order to help collect past debts.
At the Commissioners Court meeting on April 25, District Clerk Jill Steptoe said the civil cases in Trinity County that were from the state Attorney General’s Office had not been billed for several years.
Steptoe said extra help was needed to wade through the cases for the billable ones, and the office will then bill the Attorney General. She also said the office only could bill back to 2021.
In other business, the county:
•tabled action on bids for lights as the county received no bids;
•approved personnel action forms;
•approved the monthly financial report, at which the county has received 86 percent of budgeted funds while spending only 51 percent of budgeted expenses;
•approved a contract with Auctioneer Express;
•approved revisions to the county’s grant application policy;
•approved the future funding for interns;
•approved an order exempting Trinity County from elements of the safety code regarding animal control officers;
•approved cleaning the ditch at the end of Arndts Lane; and
•set Oct. 21 as the fall County Cleanup Day.
