The Ellis County Commission will meet at 5 p.m. Tuesday in the Ellis County Courthouse to discuss leasing a temporary space for some county staff.

The commissioners will consider a one-year rental agreement for the former NEW Corporation facility at 3000 New Way Drive. The space would house staff from the Courthouse and Law Enforcement Center. Part of the parking lot would hold jail pods for inmates.

Other business on the agenda includes naming the 4-H food stand, bids for renovations to the courthouse/LEC and an update on the Public Works Department's projects.
