During their short regular meeting of April 27, the Mason County Commissioners' Court tended to several basic business items.
One of those items concerned purchasing additional Burn Ban signs to be placed on smaller feeder roads around the county. Such signs are already in place on the major highways; but, many people entering the county use the Farm to Market and Ranch Roads, and do not see the Burn Ban signs posted at the county line.
The County will purchase 10 more signs, and will work with the local Texas Department of Transportation office to place them. TX DOT will assist the County by opening up the signs when burn bans are placed into effect, and closing them when the burn bans are lifted.
The Court also approved using money from the Justice Court Technology Fund to pay for online training for Texas Parks & Wildlife Game Warden, Cody Hatfield. Justice of the Peace, Tammy Bowman, explained that she had researched using the funds in such a manner, and felt comfortable making the committment to any purchase that enhances the effectiveness of the JP's office.
The next regular meeting of the Court will be May 9 at 9:00 a.m.
