Randolph County Commission holds first meeting of the new year


The Randolph County Commission held its first regular meeting of 2018 in order to elect a commission president and address plans for the upcoming year.  

In December, the commission voted unanimously to take part in an opioid lawsuit, along with several other counties, to protect the Randolph County community.  Commissioner Mike Taylor was reelected as commission president and is already taking steps toward addressing the opioid crisis more urgently.

“We have to work on, as a community we have to work together and look at all the different facets not only law enforcement but prevention, rehabilitation, counseling. That is all expensive and comes with a cost,” said Taylor.

Commission also voted to allow two volunteer interns work with the Community Corrections Department.
