County Commissioners discuss budget cycle, courtroom upgrades

LUBBOCK, Texas -

 The Lubbock County Commissioner's Court discussed several key issues during its meeting. 

County Judge Curtis Parrish said the first budget cycle for the Commissioner's Court will be a challenge. He said IT and computer systems are going to be one of the toughest needs to fill, specifically with the transition from Ki Corp to Tyler Technologies. 

It's a top to bottom overhaul of the county's information sharing services. The county will also be tasked with finding a new medical examiner, but Parrish said that will not affect the budget. 

Also discussed during the meeting, the court approved vast upgrades for Justice of the Peace courtrooms. Parrish said it's to move these courtrooms into this century. 

"To allow litigants to present their cases to the judge and/or jury and use the technology of television and computers to present their evidence to either the judge or the jury," he said, "and not just depend on a whiteboard or flip charts." 

County Commissioners also approved maintaining the county's historical collections. Parrish said Lubbock's partnerships with the Bayer Museum and Texas Tech help maintain one of the largest collections of farm equipment in the nation.
