County approves boat from FCWD

Franklin County Commissioners Court members approved a Memorandum of  Understanding with the Franklin County Water District for the Sheriff’s Office to take possession of a used boat.

Sheriff Ricky Jones will use the boat to help during peak boating seasons, when there is a large number of visitors at Lake Cypress Springs, and when needed on other water bodies and streams. For more information from the Court meeting, see the August 15 edition of the Mount Vernon Optic-Herald.
