COLDSPRING — An agreement between San Jacinto County and the city of Shepherd for permits raised questions at the Commissioners’ Court meeting on Wednesday.
County Judge Fritz Faulkner said the interlocal agreement with city of Shepherd was tabled for additional research.
Currently, the county does most of the permitting work for the city, but the city collects the fees, Faulkner said, and said commissioners will be meeting with staff in the coming week to have questions answered.
