Commissioners Meeting In Special Session Monday

Wichita County Commissioners will be meeting in a Special Session Monday. On the agenda is the hiring of additional jailers at the Wichita County Jail.

In a Special Session just after four inmates escaped from the Wichita County Jail Annex, the Commissioners Court approved a plan to increase security and add jailers. Monday they are expected to approve $5,000 for recruitment of additional jailers. They are also expected to appropriate more money to next year's budget to pay for the new jailers. Commissioners meet at 10am at the Wichita County Courthouse.
