The Herzfeld Li­brary will play host to this month’s meet­ing of the Sa­line County Quo­rum Court.

The li­brary re­quested to hold to­mor­row night’s meet­ing dur­ing last month’s meet­ing of the jus­tices of the peace. Light hors d’oeu­vres will be served.

On the agenda for the meet­ing, the JP’S will con­sider an ap­pro­pri­a­tion or­di­nance in or­der to fund con­struc­tion for the Sa­line County Sher­iff’s Depart­ment.

“(The Sa­line County Sher­iff’s Of­fice) is plan­ning on build­ing a (fa­cil­ity) for their ve­hi­cles for their com­mand cen­ter,” said Jus­tice of the Peace Josh Cur­tis dur­ing a meet­ing of the fi­nance com­mit­tee ear­lier this month.

The or­di­nance will trans­fer $30,000 from the Sher­iff’s Bond Fund line item and $50,000 from the Sher­iff’s Fine and Resti­tu­tion Pay­ment Fund line item to the county gen­eral fund. The com­bined to­tal of $80,000 will then be ap­pro­pri­ated.

A sec­ond ap­pro­pri­a­tion or­di­nance in the amount of $114,000 will also be con­sid­ered. If ap­proved, the funds will be trans­ferred from the Sher­iff’s Fed­eral Drug Con­trol Funds.

The JP’S will also con­sider the ap­point­ment of William “Bill” Rea­gan to the Water­works and San­i­tary Sewer Pub­lic Util­i­ties Board (Wood­land Hills).

If ap­proved, Rea­gan will take the place of Mon­roe Cates, who re­cently passed away.

Also on the agenda, a re­hire re­quest from the Of­fice of Emer­gency Man­age­ment.

All meet­ings are open to the pub­lic and at­ten­dance is en­cour­aged. The li­brary is lo­cated at 1800 Smithers Dr. in Ben­ton and will be­gin at 6:30 p.m.
