Payments to stay at current level
GROVETON — The Trinity County Commissioners’ Court on Jan. 10 left mileage reimbursements at the level it has been for the last four years.
Commissioner Neal Smith, who chaired the meeting in the absence of County Judge Doug Page, said the county tries to keep its policies current with federal standards; County Auditor Bonnie Kennedy told commissioners the new standard was 58.8 cents per mile.
Currently, the county reimburses at 58 cents a mile.
Commissioner Mike Loftin said he felt it didn’t need to be changed, and moved to keep the rate the same, which was passed unanimously by the court.
In other business, the county:
•discussed an ordinance passed by the city of Groveton requiring businesses and residences to post addresses according to 911 mapping requirements; and
•approved the cost of providing equipment for the recently purchased constable vehicles through CARES Act funds.
