County Jail: It has become a bone of contention in some recent Liberty County political contests that one way to save county taxpayers money is for the sheriff’s department to resume day-to-day operations of the Liberty County Jail. Most know that the sheriff’s department maintains actual control of the jail; although, a private company – Community Education Centers – is paid to run it. The amount most often quoted as annual savings if the county ended privatization is said to be around $1.5 million. Liberty County Sheriff Bobby Rader said he would gladly accept responsibility of running the facility if commissioners made that decision. However, Rader said he has never seen any figures that lead him to believe the county could actually save money by returning jail operations to the sheriff’s department and certainly not anywhere near $1.5 million.

Coffee With Mayor: KSHN has reported on the monthly program in the City of Liberty called Coffee with the Mayor. It’s a time period designed for residents to express their concerns and ideas and get answers to questions from city leaders. Originally held on another day, the monthly gathering is now on the third Thursday of each month from 7:30 to 8:30 a.m. in the council chambers at Liberty City Hall. That means the next gathering is coming up next Thursday, March 20.

Proclamation: March is Intellectual and Developmental Disabilities Awareness Month. Back in 1987, President Ronald Reagan signed legislation urging Americans to provide those, with intellectual and associated physical disabilities, encouragement and opportunities to lead productive lives and achieve their full potential. During Tuesday’s commissioners’ court, Liberty County Judge Craig McNair recognized the month and those who face these issues with a proclamation.
