WALLA WALLA – The Walla Walla County Board of Commissioners is holding its regular meeting at 10 a.m. today (Monday) instead of the usual 9 a.m. start time.

The board will consider declaring a long list of equipment from Walla Walla County Technology Services to be surplus. The lengthy list of equipment is, according to the department, past its life, damaged, no longer supported, or too costly to fix. The usable items will either be recycled if possible and the remainder will be disposed of as appropriate.

The commissioners are holding a public hearing today on the issue. The department said that none of the items have a resale value to the county. The list includes monitors, work stations, switches, printers, and laptops.

Also on the agenda is an update by the Department of Community Health on the COVID-19 pandemic; and a request for out-of-state travel from the Walla Walla County Sheriff’s Office for Chief Criminal Deputy Richard Schram to attend the annual executive education conference  for the FBI-Law Enforcement Executive Development Association in Fort Lauderdale, Florida in April.

The meeting is streamed live on the commissioners page of the county website.
