As part of their regular Tuesday meeting at the courthouse, 200 E. Fourth Ave., Mitchell, the Davison County commissioners will briefly address a vote taken Jan. 15 to award a contract to Aurora Security Products, of Letcher, for jail security cameras.
ASP is owned by Paul Claggett, the brother of Commission Chairman John Claggett, who also voted to approve the contract. Commissioner Claggett later said his vote “was an oversight” and that he would have abstained from voting had he realized the contract was for his brother’s company. Paul Claggett has said his brother has no financial interest in ASP.
Deputy State’s Attorney Jim Taylor has recommended that Commissioner Claggett explain what occurred so that his explanation may be recorded in the commission’s minutes. The agenda includes: 9 a.m.
• Call to order, Pledge of Allegiance, approval of meeting minutes, citizen input. 9:30 a.m.
• State Veterans’ Cemetery. 9:45 a.m.
• Maintenance Supervisor Mark Ruml, to set the time and date for opening asbestos removal bids for the 1420 N. Main St. building (former Central Electric building); part-time wage increase. 10:15 a.m.
• Corrections Administrator Don Radel, regarding new hires, resignations. 10:30 a.m.
