"A popular government without popular information, or the means of acquiring it, is but a Prologue to a Farce or a Tragedy; or, perhaps both. Knowledge will forever govern ignorance; and a people who mean to be their own governors must arm themselves with the power knowledge gives."

Jackson County Commission Regular Meeting December 12, 2016 More on the Jackson County Commission and Community Corrections Temporary Resolution

Jackson County Courthouse, South Side - photo by G. Morgan. According to the Chair of the Jackson County Commission, Matthew Hodges, there was asbestos discovered in the Jackson County Commission Board Room in the floor tiles. The carpet which was removed, new tiles installed were installed over the top of the old tiles. Asbestos materials when disturbed present a serious health issue. There should have been a comprehensive Asbestos Mitigation Plan for the Jackson County Courthouse, apparently this has not been accomplished after millions of dollars have been spent historically on renovation and removal of asbestos beginning in 1993 when large quantities were discovered throughout the Courthouse.
