Speed limits on county roads were among matters before Brown County Commissioners as they faced a light agenda Monday morning.
Commissioners approved Precinct 3 Commissioner Wayne Shaw's request to set a 30-mph speed limit on county roads 381 (the Old May Road), 615 and 616.
On the "reports" section of the agenda, Precinct 1 Commissioner Gary Worley said he has received calls about setting a speed limit on Stephen F. Austin in the Camp Bowie Industrial Park.
Commissioners could not take action since it was not an action item. County Judge Ray West said he thought the numerous railroad crossings would have kept traffic slow, but Worley said traffic speeds up between the crossings.
Also Monday, commissioners:
• Agreed the burn ban does not need to be reinstated.
• Approved the salaries of three replacement jailers for the Brown County Jail. The jail count is 170, commissioners were told.
• Approved Verizon's request to be allowed to install a telephone line on County Road 264.
• Heard a brief report from Good Samaritan Ministries volunteer Marilyn Jackson, who thanked commissioners for their support of the ministry and presented the court with a cake and cookies.
• Approved 13 days that will be taken as holidays in 2014.
• Heard West report that the county has received two proposals for rewiring cameras at the county juvenile lockup. One proposal is for $7,350, and the other proposal exceeds $15,000, West told commissioners.
