GILMER — Upshur County Commissioners Court on May 15 voted 3-1 to deny giving gasoline credit cards to constables.
County Judge Dean Fowler said Pct. 2 Constable Jason Weeks had told him he was having problems obtaining gasoline and was having to drive all the way into Gilmer to obtain it at the county’s Road and Bridge Dept.
