Wichita County Helping Keeps Roads Safe

Wichita County Commissioners are meeting Monday and are expected to agree to a grant that help keep your roads safe.

That grant is just over $20,000 for the Texas Traffic Safety Program. It focuses on impaired driving. The County will have to partially match some of that funding. That match part is expected to be just over $5,200.

Commissioners will also be looking at approving payment of wellness blood screens and/or PSA testing for all regular full time County employees and their dependents under the Wichita County Health Insurance Plan. The rate for those shots is $15.00 per person/per test. Part-time employees, CSCD employees, retirees and dependents may pay for testing at the same $15.00 rate.

Commissioners meet Monday morning at 10:00 in a Special Session at the Wichita County Courthouse.

Newschannel 6 will let you know what action was taken.
