SUBMITTED REPORT

The commissioners court this week adopted a resolution honoring longtime former Hays County Treasurer Dorothy “Dottie” Payne Sims, who turned 90 years old on Sept. 11.

Sims was appointed county treasurer in 1981 to fill an unexpected vacancy and served until her retirement in 1994. In addition to elected office, Sims has been a member of the San Marcos Chamber of Commerce for 46 years and is a member of the San Marcos Women’s Hall of Fame.

At one point, she owned the historic Old Hays County Jail on Fredericksburg Street and refused to sell until the Hays County Historical Commission assumed responsibility for restoring the 1883 building.
