GROVETON — An easy agenda greeted newly minted County Judge Danny Martin on Jan. 9.
At its regular meeting, the Trinity County Commissioners Court approved raising the mileage rate for county employees 3 cents to 65.5 cents per mile, since according to County Auditor Bonnie Kennedy, the IRS approves a new rate annually.
Commissioner Neil Smith said that since gas prices went up, the county should increase the rates.
In other business, the county:
•approved personnel action forms;
•approved issuing county credit cards to the newly elected County Treasurer and District Clerk; and
•approved enrollment in the Texas Association of Counties training course on cybersecurity.
