Montague County Commissioners will meet at 9 a.m. on Dec. 12.
The court will consider appointing members to the county historical commission for a two-year term.
A pair of requests from the sheriff’s office will be reviewed: A Correctional Communications services agreement with City Tele-Coin Company and the commissary services agreement with CTC Commissary. Both programs service the county jail.
