COLDSPRING — Returning to the San Jacinto Community Center, the Commissioners Court met for the first February meeting, noting that some prescribed burns have been happening around the county.
The local District Attorney’s Office has tasked the court with being in accordance with the 86th Legislature and requiring that the court establish a Sexual Assault Response Team. Members are to be appointed, including representatives from surrounding County’s Sheriff’s offices and DA’s office of the counties involved, members from Children’s Safe Harbor in Montgomery County, and a SANE Nurse.
This is an ongoing item and will be on the agenda at a later time.
Presented by Trisha Basham, clarifications were made to the road name change verification form. Customers will need to present three different name proposals to court along with the already established $500 fee for the private road creation, half of which goes to the 911 Department and the other half to the precinct who will provide a blue sign with installation.
The court emphasized that legally, green signs are reserved for county roads and blue signs are for private, non-county roads.
The court approved the purchase of a new sanitation truck for $161,720 from Santex Truck Centers Ltd.
Plans to hire an architect to design a renovated county law enforcement center have been established for future agendas. The law enforcement center is a project that has been in the works for more than a year now.
A bid for work on the Innovation Center will be on the next agenda.
The next Commissioner’s court meet will meet Wednesday, Feb. 23, at 9 a.m. in the Emergency Shelter in Coldspring, across from the courthouse. Public comment can be made at the beginning of the meeting.
