Engineering concerns took center stage at Monday afternoon’s meeting of the Ellis County Commissioners Court, with the county voting to purchase a radio tower near Ennis as well as voting to approve emergency plans involving the county’s dam system.
The court approved an agreement between Ellis County and Region 10 Education Service Center for the purchase of the 450-foot radio tower and accompanying equipment shelter located four miles southeast of Ennis on FM 85.
County Engineer Joe White said the cost of purchasing the tower and outfitting it for county needs would not exceed $35,000.
