Each year, Brown County Commissioners advertise for bids related to materials needed to complete projects in their respective precincts. During Monday’s meeting, bids were opened and unanimously approved for priming, paving, seal coating, fog sealing and/or construction of new roads, crushed stone, grade 3, 4, and 5 cover stone, cold mix (all types), all asphalt/emulsion products, bulk hauling and blasting and crushing of stone. The bids were unanimously approved, with the exception of county judge Paul Lilly who was absent from the meeting.
The court took no action on a request from Lilly to post notice of the remaining commissioner’s court meetings for the rest of the year. Precinct 1 Commissioner Gary Worley said with upcoming training and possible other dates being shifted throughout the year, committing to dates would be difficult to do at this time.
In other business, the court:
Approved county clerk Sharon Ferguson’s request to back file, image and index land records.
Approved Justice of the Peace, Precinct 1, Doug Hurt to declare a shredder and printer as surplus equipment.
Took no action regarding a burn ban, which means there is still no burn ban in Brown County.
