Although the personnel haven’t changed in the Stephens County Assessor’s Office, the Board of Stephens County Commissioners approved acknowledging the appointment of a requesting officer for the assessor’s office.

Jo Johnson, county clerk, said, “It’s a name change. Someone got married.”

Jennifer Newman, who works in the assessor’s office, was recently married and took the last name Ferguson.

In other action, during a very brief meeting:

- The commissions approved several weekly items including the minutes from the Sept. 5 meeting, and the payment of purchase orders and the issuance of blanket purchase orders.

- Several items approved are usually done on a monthly basis. Those items included county officer monthly reports and the allocation of Alcoholic Beverage Tax, and the approval of cash fund estimate of needs and request for appropriations.
