The Washington County quorum court is meeting for the first time this year on Thursday night. The board has six new members and a newly elected county judge. “I think coming in new administration as county judge I really wanted to set my tone, county judge Patrick Deakins said. “A new tone for Washington County.” Deakins says the most important part about tonight’s meeting is approving a new director of communications position. The court will also vote on whether or not to change the county seal. “We use it to designate our county property,” Deakins said. “Even down to vehicles as detailed with the county seal.”The potential new seal would add 11 stars to the current one, to represent all 13 cities in the county. “The county policy that we set is inevitably going to have effects to the municipalities and we always want to honor them and consider them in our decisions,” Deakins said.
