The JP's went back into regular session and Ed Darling noted the issue of comp time is a problem. Darling noted some new jobs being created should take care of that in the future. Sheriff Singleton noted the problem comes because of the jail staffing. About $58,000 would have to be paid to avoid being written up by state audit. The issue was tabled.

The JP'S approved the special budgets for 2018. They then passed the jail budget, the road budget, and the general budget. The meeting then adjourned.
