Comanche County commissioners Monday approved an application for a Rural Economic Action Plan (REAP) grant by the Cox’s Store Volunteer Fire Department.
Cox’s Store Fire Chief Jody Dreves said her department will apply for a $45,000 grant to build an extension on the department’s current building that will house a new tanker truck, which the department is currently building.
Dreves said the department is building a 5,000 gallon tanker water-tender truck, which should be completed in a little over a month. Dreves said if the department receives the grant, it should cover the cost of a shell for the extension.
The recipients of the REAP grants are announced in December.
In other business, the commissioners heard the weekly report from William Hobbs, administrator of the Comanche County Detention Center, while acting in their capacity as the Comanche County Facilities Authority.
Hobbs said the jail had 285 inmates as of Friday. Of that population, 238 were men and 47 were women He said 29 inmates were ready to be transported to other facilities by the Department of Corrections which removed none of the inmates last week.
An invitation to bid has been placed by the Comanche County Purchasing Department for a COOLING TOWER FILL REPLACEMENT AND INLET LOUVER KIT FOR THE REYMSA 810 TOWER. The bid can be seen HERE.
