Lee County Board of Supervisors Meeting 03

In our final coverage segment of the recent Lee County Board of Supervisors meeting is the approval of some mandatory contract documents regarding a block grant to be used for the St Charles Waterline Replacement Project which is being conducted by the Lee County Public Service Authority.
Various monetary increases in relation to Courthouse Security fees were then discussed with a 50% proposed fee hike from $10 to $15 being denied but a slightly smaller fee increase for $13 being approved.
