There is some good news in Tucker County for those in need of cots, blankets and hygiene kits.
Darla Stemple, the E-911 director for the county, reported at Wednesday's Tucker County Commission meeting that the 911 office has received two shelter carts.
The carts includes 25 cots and blankets and 30 hygiene kits.
"We will be looking to selectively place it in the county," said Stemple. "We are still in a discussion with that."
The placement of the carts is still under consideration, officials said.
Also during Wednesday's meeting, Commissioner Tom Carr reported on the state of the courthouse annex.
"The drywall is starting to come together," said Carr.
"Everything is moving along fairly well."
Commission members stated that everything which has been built was paid in full.
Concerning state funds, the commission voted to apply for the state Courthouse Facilities Authority grant. In past years, it has been used for improvements to the courthouse.
The grant works on an 80/20 system where the state provides 80 percent and the county matches the funds by committing to 20 percent of the total.
Also during the meeting, Mike Rosenau congratulated the Tucker County High School Mountain Lions for being ranked number one in Class A football.
The last action item was the approval of William Dilly to remain as the county clerk of the works. He has been hired for one more month and will be reevaluated on a monthly basis.
