Report recommends creation of county seal

Union County will be getting a new courthouse within the next couple of years.

Sooner than that, a new seal for the county will be created.

As of now, the county does not seem to have an official seal.

That was the finding of a report shared at last week's regular meeting of the Union County Board of Commissioners.

The meeting was held Tuesday afternoon, Jan. 18, at the Union County Courthouse in Jonesboro.

A report about the Union County seal, or, at least, the lack of one, was shared by Judy Travelstead of Cobden.
