County discusses fairgrounds
By Tony Farkas
GROVETON — The Trinity County Commissioners Court recently found the fairgrounds were all county property and expressed concern about the dilapidated Sheriff’s Posse building.
At its regular meeting on May 9, County Attorney Colton Hay said the researched showed the land in the area belonged to the county; Commissioner Neal Smith said that the posse building was a danger and needed to be torn down.
However, Hay said the posse members were split on what to do with it — either tearing it down or rehabilitating the structure.
No decision was made, but the court expressed a desire to discuss the matter further with posse members.
In other business, the county:
•discussed ditch cleaning with a resident;
•approved personnel action forms;
•approved seeking bids on road material and contract hauling for the next fiscal year;
•proclaimed June as Elder Abuse Prevention Month;
•approved extending a fuel contract with Hughes Oil for the next fiscal year;
•approved declaring old file cabinets from the District Clerk’s Office as surplus; and
•approved an agreement with Jay Hamby to allow county equipment on private property to work on drainage issues on Piney Creek Road.
