McCulloch and Mason County Commissioners each met for one of their two regular May meetings on Monday, May 9 .
McCulloch County –
McCulloch County Commissioners had a short agenda that was shortened even more when two of the three items to be discussed were tabled until the next session.
The first item was a request to move a Rochelle School sign. But, Precinct 4 Commissioner, Rick Kemp, asked that it be tabled to give him time to get more information on the plan its affect on nearby residents.
The second item was to have been approval of hiring Carrie Ross as the new Family and Consumer Health Agent for the McCulloch AgriLife Extension service. But, Texas AgriLife still has a few paperwork details to be covered before the Commissioners can take action. So, it was also tabled until the next Commissioners’ meeting.
Commissioners did move ahead with an executive session for discussions with the County Attorney on work on sub-division regulations, indigant inmates health and the Rattlesnake and Heart of Texas wind energy projects.
Mason County –
Mason County Commissioners had a fairly long agenda, but, Commissioners were able to move through it in short order.
Three of the items on the agenda were the acknowledgement of the use of American Recovery Plan Act (or COVID-19 Relief) funds to purchase a radio for the County ambulance and computer systems for County Law Enforcement vehicles.
Also discussed was a proposal that the County allocate some of the ARPA funds to the Concho Valley Food Bank. Commissioners agreed to invite the director of the Food Bank to their next meeting to review how the money would be used.
Other items on the Mason County agenda involved accepting donations, job descriptions , use of the Courthouse lawn for Community Festival in June and discussion of Heritage Park rules and regulations.
