Burn Ban still on, court OK's square decor

Commissioners made quick work of the Oct. 4 meeting, tabling two items and approving the rest. The burn ban is still in place – at least until a good, heavy rain falls in our area. The court approved the yearly resolution for the Freestone County indigent defense grant program. Freestone County receives reimbursement funds from this program. Commissioners also okayed Judge Linda Grant's request to spend $2,000 on decorations for the courthouse square this month. The money will be taken from the Economic Development/Tourism budget. “We're putting out a good image of the county – not just for the residents,” said Grant.
