Clarke County Gun, vehicle auction set for Saturday

QUITMAN More than 40 shotguns and rifles seized by the Clarke County Sheriff's Department will be auctioned Saturday.
Background checks on successful bidders will be conducted by the Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco and Firearms.
The auction, scheduled for Saturday morning at the county maintenance building, will include used vehicles and equipment.
The supervisors' agenda also included a report from Fire Coordinator Lindy Slay, who said some radio equipment at volunteer fire departments must be replaced.
If supervisors agree to purchase a new repeater, Slay said it would be placed on the antenna at the Clarke County Jail. The old one could be used as a back-up and placed at another location.
Slay said the new equipment could cost as much as $10,000. The supervisors asked for other proposals.
In other matters, supervisors:
Approved an order for Harper, who is also the emergency coordinator, to attend the "Governor's Domestic Preparedness Summit" on Nov. 11-13, and a "Basic Incident Preparedness School" on Nov. 27-28;
Approved a change order for the re-roofing of H.C. Watkins Memorial Hospital; and
Heard a request from the Clarkdale Volunteer Fire Department to allow more Clarke County territory in its fire district.
