A 10-year fire contract for the East Jackson Fire District that calls for the construction of a new facility was approved by the board of commissioners Monday night, but not before an exchange over whether to postpone the action.
The vote to proceed passed 3-1 with chairman Tom Crow casting the “no” vote. Commissioners Dwain Smith, Bruce Yates and Chas Hardy voted for the motion. Commissioner Jim Hix was not present.
There was discussion on postponing action to give the county attorney more time to review the contract.
