County Commission asked for help with Sewer District problems
PULASKI COUNTY, Mo. (Dec. 2, 2008) — Prior problems with sewage overflows from the Pulaski County Sewer District have sent more than 66,000 gallons of sludge onto other people’s property, according to Pulaski County Emergency Management Director Lawson Smith and LaDonna Murray, an environmental health specialist. Murray works for the Pulaski County Health Department but spoke to the county commission in her capacity as a board member of the Pulaski County Local Emergency Planning Committee. That incident was cleaned up long ago. However, speaking at a Monday, Dec. 1 county commission meeting, Smith and Murray asked for help in getting the sewer district to cooperate with their agencies in providing timely notification of problems such as sewage overflows. Click here to read more on Pulaski County Daily News ...

State legislature asked to relieve Pulaski sheriff's workload
PULASKI COUNTY, Mo. (Dec. 2, 2008) — The county courthouse could receive an extra state-funded court bailiff if a bill pre-filed by State Rep. David Day, R-Dixon, passes the legislature next year. Two bailiffs already serve in Pulaski County. State law currently specifies that an extra bailiff — technically known as a “circuit court marshal” — is to be appointed if the average inmate population of a circuit exceeds 2,500 for a two-year period. Day’s legislation would lower that number to 1,500, which means the state prison population in Licking would qualify the 25th Judicial Circuit, which includes Pulaski, Texas, Phelps and Maries counties, for an additional bailiff. Pulaski County Sheriff J.B. King said his deputies are regularly being pulled off other duties to serve as courtroom guards because the circuit clerk doesn’t have enough bailiffs to staff all three courtrooms. Click here to read more on Pulaski County Daily News ...
