The Ennis City Commission agreed to enter into a yearly contract with The Gingerbread House on Monday night.
The Gingerbread House, also known as the Ellis County Children’s Advocacy Center, serves as the county’s center for forensic interviews for children who are involved in or the victims of crime.
Until now, City Manager Chuck Ewings said the city pays approximately $200 per interview when Ennis police investigators take advantage of the Gingerbread House’s services. Now, the city will pay a yearly $5,000 as opposed to paying a la carte.
