Aero Care Contract approved

The Ward County Commissioners' Court met on Monday, October 22, 2012 at 9:30 AM.  The Commissioners approved a contract with Aero Care offering prepaid air ambulance services to county employees.  The County's current insurance does not cover air ambulance services. The additional coverage will cost the county employees $40 a year for a single participant, $45 a year for couples and $50 a year for 3 or more in a household.  Every member of the household will be covered under the program.  For other citizens the cost will be an additional $10 a year.

The Commissioners approved a resolution authorizing a county grant for the Texas Department of Agriculture home-delivered meal grant program for the Ward County Senior Citizen Center.  The County will match the grant money that the State grants to the Center.  The Court approved the indigent defense grant program.

The Court approved a contract with the Texas Department of State Health Services for vital statistics information.  This contract will allow the TDSHS access to out of county birth certificates.

Julene West Barlow was hired as a Curator for Precinct 2.  Michael Nunez was hired as a temporary part-time clerk at the Pecos Office for adult probation.  Rodolfo Guzman was hired as a jailer for the Ward County Sheriff's Office.  The Court approved the hiring of Kyle Rasband-ER full time LVN and Vicki Taylor-ER full time RN.
