The City of Slaton Commissioners approved a contract with Judge TJ McAuley and other items during its regular monthly meeting Monday (Feb. 12) at City Hall.

McAuley said the contract had been revised several times and said he was happy with it. He added if anyone had questions to ask him he was at City Hall Tuesdays.

The board also took action on an Interlocal Cooperation Contract for the Failure to Appear (FTA) program.

McAuley said this program keeps people from renewing their driver’s license until they appear at his court for any outstanding court appearances. People pay $10 when entered in the FTA program, and the City has to reimburse $6 to the State.

The board approved appointing Chuck Crawford and Greg Dyess to the Planning & Zoning board.

They also approved a resolution regarding the sale of a surplus patrol vehicle and effective date.

Mayor Clif Shaw said the vehicle, a Ford Explorer, had electrical damage and other issues, which was why they were wanting to sell it.

The board also approved a resolution to contract Election Services with Lubbock County for all joint elections in Lubbock County for the 2024 Fiscal Year.
