County commissioners set to meet Jan. 19

Commissioners will begin the morning in a work session with an update from the Emergency Operations Center and discussions about a Children and Family Program Development proposal and Statewide Transportation Improvement Fund projects.

Transitioning into the regular meeting, commissioners will then take a look at amending the Natural Areas and Parks Board bylaws, go through departmental reports and requests and discuss a resolution condemning the attack on the U.S. capitol and the appointment of an interim sheriff with Scott Jackson’s retirement coming this month.
