Hill County Officials provided a number of updates on their recent activities at a meeting Tuesday, including the ongoing search for more staff, work on American Rescue Plan Act funded projects and the upcoming elections.
Hill County Sheriff Jamie Ross said they are down to four full-time employees at the Hill County Detention Center and they’ve had to pull deputies off the street to fill the gaps.
Ross said crime is rising and they are responding to calls as best they can.
“We’re just trying to keep our heads above water,‚” he said.
