Less than two weeks after Election Day, District Attorney-elect Jason Cashon will address the Erath County Commissioners Court concerning a new assistant DA.

Cashon will replace current District Attorney John Terrill, who is retiring from the position after more than 20 years.

Cashon ran uncontested during the Nov. 4 election and will soon take the lead prosecutor’s position in the 266th Judicial District. Cashon will be sworn into office on Jan. 1, 2009, with a new assistant at his side. He is expected to appoint Sterling Harmon, an attorney from Seminole, to fill the role.

In addition to items of regular business, the court will consider and/or approve the following:

• An interlocal agreement wit the North Central Council of Governments for Public Health Preparedness Project Implementation

• Closing the dedicated road connecting CR 176 and CR 509

• Dental rates for county employees for 2009

• First responder coverage areas

• Reserve deputies for constables

Meanwhile, the court will address security at various county offices. Tax Assessor Jennifer Carey will request permission to go out for bids for a camera system for the tax office. The court will also consider and/or approve a camera or surveillance system for the new fuel station, and updating the security system at the Dublin Annex.

The Erath County Commissioners Court meets at 9 a.m. today in the commissioners courtroom at the Erath County Courthouse.
