The Dugger Town Council President Billy Pirtle says four people applied for the position. The Council named Joe Ray as marshal.

All new hires will have a one year probationary period.

In other business the council:

  • The council announced the terms of its settlement with former Marshal Dave Heaton, saying it will pay Heaton at his regular rate of pay until his accrued 336 hours have been paid.
  • Discussed the purchase of a police vehicle for the town, saying a suitable vehicle has been located and can be had for $2,200 with a trade-in of the old vehicle.
