County meeting focus on tax abatement, constables

Ellis County Judge Carol Bush and county commissioners went into a closed doors executive session

Tuesday during their regularly scheduled 2 p.m. public meeting.

When they came out, Bush had a message for Ellis County constables regarding a pursuit policy.

“I think it’s important for safety for law enforcement and to the public that we address this, and you are

in the unique position to do this. You’re the ones that are out there on the calls. You know what the

dangers are to yourselves and to the public, so I think it’s best you would address that,” she said.

A new pursuit policy has been a hot topic ever since a 2013 wreck involving Constable Terry Nay and

two motorcycling fugitives. In the accident, one fugitive wrecked into Nay’s personal pickup truck, and

the other one swerved to avoid the collision. Both were seriously injured.
