GROVETON — The Trinity County Commissioners’ Court will be on the side of Trinity Cove’s POA in helping abate some nuisances located within the subdivision.
At its regular meeting on July 12, the court set a public hearing for Aug. 10 into a list of 12 properties in Trinity Cove that have been deemed public nuisances.
County Judge Doug Page said the county had taken this matter up about 1 ½ years ago, under former County Attorney Joe Warner Bell, but did not finish the matter. Bell was defeated in a subsequent election, and the matter went dormant.
The current attorney, Colton Hay, said that it needed to be revived, and the commissioners agreed.
In other business, the county:
- approved bids for the sale of tax resale properties submitted by the County Appraisal District;
- approved the deletion of Crabapple Lane from the county’s 911 addressing map;
- approved the purchase of body cameras for the county’s four constables, and signed an agreement with WatchGuard Video Inc. to that effect;
- approved new private road in the Colt Ranch Land Development, designated Colt Lane;
- approved designating east and west directions for Sixth through 11thstreets in Milltown, based on location relative to Avenue A;
- discussed a new city ordinance for the city of Trinity requiring homes and businesses to display the proper 911 address; and
- scheduled special session for Aug. 4 for budget requests from department heads.
