At Monday morning’s Young County Commissioners meeting, there were a few items that the entire commissioners court agreed upon, and a couple of agenda items that were not agreed upon.
The court wasted no time carrying motions to reduce the speed limit of Big Sandy Road in precinct 3 from 45 to 30 mph, as well as considering the disposition of forfeited property pursuant to the Code of Criminal Procedures, 59.06.
Also not debated in the agenda: The Paper Pig will be at the Graham Square on Tuesday, Dec. 17 for courthouse document shredding.
No action was yet taken on the adoption of the 2014 Young County Appraisal District operations budget, nor was any action taken on the matter of state allocated funds in the pursuit of County Energy Transportation Reinvestment Zone (CETRZ) status. According to the commissioners court, information on possible funds for Young County in relation to the CETRZ should be available by the end of the week.
Tabled items during the meeting included consideration of the 2014 holiday schedule and the lease of the radio tower on FM 209, just southwest of Graham.
With regard to the radio tower, the Young County Commission has written a letter to Solar Systems Inc. stating that the 10 year lease of the property where the tower stands will conclude June 28, 2014. The letter explains that maintenance is needed on the tower and its securing anchors. Included in the letter is the consideration of the replacement of the building that houses the tower’s electronic equipment.
“Young County Commissioners Court, the contracting authority of the county, has directed me to communicate with Solar Systems, Inc. regarding the possibility of lease renewal and your thoughts and desires on this matter,” the letter stated.
