Stephens County Commissioners were presented a proclamation to observe April as Child Abuse Prevention Month at their regular meeting March 24.
Members of the Child Welfare Board read the proclamation and will place symbols on the trees and courthouse lawn to stress the importance of the children in Stephens County who have been victims of abuse.
The group tabled a pair of requests regarding fire extinguisher service and computer preventative care. Both items were tabled on further requests to find out if moves would be beneficial financially for the county.
The group also filed continuation of certificates of bonds for Deputy Tax Assessor/Collector Sherry Ellis and Deputy County Clerk Joan Marie Gipson.
County treasurer Sharon Trigg reported the county received $810,505 in revenues and had $786,005 in expenses.
