At their last meeting the Johnson County Commissioners approved the chair to sign a Homeland Security Grant for $6,224.45 to go to the Johnson County Sheriff's Office.
The commissioners also approved the purchase of computers and installation for the new judicial center to help with security in the courtrooms.
Judge William J. Edelman will be checking with the Wyoming Supreme Court to see if funding is available through the state to help with these expenses, but the commissioners approved up to $3,000 for Ptolemy Data Systems to order computers and begin the process of installing and setting up the security system.
Also approved was the yearly agreement between the county and the Wyoming Game and Fish for services the county provides at the Mikesell-Potts Recreation Area at Lake DeSmet.
