2 commissioner Weaver Stripling, and John Nunn
.Although Nunn, former San Jacinto County's 911 coordinator was not terminated from his position until Monday, Oct. 6, Price states in his suit filed Aug. 20, 2003 "Nunn is to be terminated in September from his contract with the county."
This apparently was cause to tie Nunn
to the alleged conspiracy.
...Agreeing, the court passed a motion to pay monthly bills of the county with the exception of $466.67 in travel expenses for San Jacinto County Emergency Management Coordinator Shirley Brandon and $3,542.58 in what was termed as travel expenses for Nunn.
Stating that Nunn
has not been performing his duties, Judge Law said, "911 calls have been referred to my office since Oct. 6."
According to Nunn
contract automatically renewed itself in September because commissioners' court failed to notify him that it would be cancelled."The $3,542.58 includes my salary, office expenses and travel for the month," Nunn
told the San Jacinto News-Times."It's not just for travel.
..."The reason that I am not giving out 911 addresses is because I was told by Deep East Texas Council of Governments (DETCOG) Regional Director Van Bush not to," Nunn said.
I called and asked him (Nunn) not to assign any more 911 addresses after receiving notice from the county that the office had been changed."Although Nunn
has been informed by Judge Law that he
no longer works for the county, he
is still answering telephone calls and referring them to the judge's office for addresses.While the court is trying to determine how they will get the $3,542.58 refunded to the county, Nunn
said, "I have a contract with the county and I plan on getting 11 more payments of the same amount just as the contract specifies."
...Agreeing how important 911 is to the county, San Jacinto County Judge Bill Law said, "Nunn has done a great job on this."
was our first impression of San Jacinto County
cheerful and friendly voice he
said "Hello, this is 911 addressing may I help you?He
went on to welcome us to the county and told us not to be-lieve everything we had heard about San Jacinto County
, it was a great place to live and raise a fam-ily and with a chuckle he
said "and another thing, we are a lot bigger than most people think, we have seven caution lights in the county, not six as is the rumor on the streets.We do not have one red light in the entire county, but we also do not have one industrial smoke stack either."He
told us where to get our wa-ter, lights, phone service and who our County officials were and how to get in touch with them.He was an ambassador for this county and I for one will miss him and hope that his replacement has the same atti-tude toward the job as he had.
