During a special meeting of the Jim Wells County Commissioners' Court, officials will consider once again a funding request by La Paloma Emergency Medical Services.

The item was tabled during the last meeting of the court after representatives from La Paloma did not appear to discuss the request.

The court will also consider a request from new Pct. 3 Justice of the Peace Karin Knolle, who has spent a month at her new position.

Her request is for computers and Internet service for her office.

The Emergency Management Department will be discussed and several budget line items will be considered during Friday's meeting, along with official appointments for the JWC Historical Commission.

The Friday meeting will begin at 9 a.m. in the county courtroom.
