Commissioners to Hear Meeting Chambers and District Court Improvement Updates

SWEETWATER COUNTY — The Sweetwater County Commissioners will discuss the progress on changes being made to the Commissioner Chambers and Sweetwater County District Court that were started to accommodate COVID-19 Coronavirus health guidelines during their meeting Tuesday morning.

In April, the Sweetwater County Commissioners started conducting meetings via Zoom and went forward with doing renovations in the Commissioner Chambers at the Sweetwater County Courthouse. These changes would allow for proper social distancing amid the COVID-19 pandemic, as well as update outdated seating and improve sound systems.

Around the same time, the commissioners approved to have Gene Legerski, Sweetwater County Public Works Director, work with the Sweetwater County District Court to make improvements and allow for better social distancing.
