COLDSPRING — The San Jacinto County Commissioners Court approved an increase to On-Site Sewage Facilities permits to cover costs imposed by the state.

At its regular meeting Nov. 29, the county added $10 to the fee because the state of Texas charges the county that amount.

County Judge Fritz Faulkner said that during a recent audit by state officials, it was found the county had not paying the fee. He pointed out the state had missed the payments as well, and there should be a statute of limitations on the missed payments.

Commissioner Donnie Marrs pointed out the county had not paid around $1,600.

•approved adding CASA to the jury donation form;

•approved a budget amendment for court reporting;

•approved the bond renewal for Constable Ray Atchley;

•approved issuing credit cards to the Justice of the Peace Precinct 1 and 4 offices, with a $2,500 limit;

•approved a donation from Ken White of 25 bicycles, which will be given to children nominated by school officials;

•discussed applications for a code officer in executive session;

•discussed progress on a flood gauge project; and
