BIG SPRING - A joint meeting in Big Spring between the Howard County Commissioners Court and the Big Spring City Council was held on Monday night.

The two groups held the meeting together for the first time.

They discussed housing the Police Department and the Sheriff's Office in the same building.

The new offices would be built as an additional wing at the Howard County Jail.

That would save them around $150,000.

Monday night's meeting was only informational.

Both will vote later on the proposal.
