slightly edited to take out the parts where the commissioners were in executive session but the recorder stayed on.
MP3 (best to right click and download to your computer). My quickie transcription, go listen to the recording if you want to hear exactly what was said.
Reports from various county entities. Democratic party election judges list. Water company that wants to bore under the road. (Chain Hills? Giant Hills? couldn't make out). TCEQ rules allow every water company to have a certificate of convenience and necessity, can serve customers within 1/2 miles from your CC, as long as other water companies not present. (about 27 minutes in). Would cut off customers beyond that half mile?? Would it isolate people on the far end of the road from the Somervell County Water district? Plans are to have water available to every citizen of the county via water district, just approved a bond to get this done, within the next 24 months, 60 percent of major thoroughfares covered. Would need an easement granted to them, would be going under CR right of way. Not county's responsibility of whether the water company has the *right* to serve. Motion ot grant an easement under the road. The people living in this subdivision had to move out because of the well. Passed easement.
Waiving loading fee on transfer station for mulch. Mulch pile on fire even on a cold day. (FREE!! FREE, I TELL YOU!!! GO GET FREE MULCH!)
Insurance on Roof, property and concrete insurance materials. Bids.
Emergency Exit-Sheila Brown part on her property. Legal necessities. Judge sign easement.
Happy Hills turning lane pay for material (about 38 minutes in) TxDOT paying for all of it? No. Can make a deal for safety purposes, it is legal, even though on state and private land and not county- but it would open the door to others? Mike Ford-that is a dangerous spot out there, personally think it's TxDOT's responsibility to take care of it. Maynard jokes that his driveway off 144 is dangerous (Ie, if you do it for one person, who else will ask?) Tax dollars directed towards roads are directed to our OWN roads (not state highways, etc). Take no action on it at this time passed.
Bids. (about 45 minutes in) contracts about the building changes,building extension.
Went into executive session about personnel, land, etc.
