STAFF WRITER CONNIE SWINNEY BURNET — In a move that will save Burnet County about $36,000 a year, the Burnet County Sheriff’s Office closed its Special Operations Unit (SOU) office, located in Marble Falls. The three-person staff, who specialize in criminal interdiction and drug-related cases, will relocate to BCSO headquarters in Burnet Burnet County Sheriff Calvin Boyd said the move reflected a desire to bring personnel together and avoid added lease payments while, at the same time, continuing interdiction efforts. “Nothing’s changed. This is just saving the county money in rent and utilities,” Boyd said. “We had room to construct offices here (at the BCSO) and move everyone up here. “We didn’t lose any employees,” he added. “We’ll still be working those cases.” By closing the Marble Falls office, the county will save approximately $3,000 per month in rent and utilities. email@example.com DailyTrib.com See author's posts Click to share on Twitter (Opens in new window)Click to share on Facebook (Opens in new window) Tags: burnet county sheriff's office, government, news Continue Reading Previous Burnet Middle School introduces newest Sandy Hook Promise program: ‘Say Something’Next Granite Shoals town hall meeting on road bond Oct. 14 You Might Like Government News USDA reminds producers to file crop acreage reports 13 hours ago | Media Release Government News PEC PEC approves four resolutions in June 17 executive session 13 hours ago | Suzanne Freeman Featured Story - Home Slider Government Highland Lakes Lake Buchanan Lake Travis LCRA News LCRA cuts off Highland Lakes water to downstream agriculture 15 hours ago | Daniel Clifton 1 thought on “Burnet County Sheriff’s Office closes Special Ops location, keeps staff” Way to go Calvin!
