Staff Writer

The Commissioners’ Court of Nolan County met in regular session on Monday, February 11 at 9 a.m. in the County Courthouse with Judge May presiding.
After the approval of meeting minutes from January 28, a UniFirst Corporation representative, Linda Collins, gave an in-depth presentation on the company’s product line and cost benefits associated with doing business with the company.
The concerns that affect Nolan County regarding uniforms are not unique to the county and are mirrored and shared by other nearby counties. Findings are also not unique to Nolan County. All counties have safety concerns regarding their workers, as well as the need to look presentable and professional in representing the County. There is a need to maintain a high level of professionalism when out in the field or street.
The company offers laundry service for a slight cost per county employee. The employee benefit is not having to wash or even repair clothing should it become damaged, as the company does all of its own repairs. The company has long term experience in the uniformed worker field as it started in 1936 and works with government contracts to maintain pricing and is debt free. It has been traded on Wall Street and is a billion dollar company.
