The Commissioners have set the next meeting for Monday, March 8th at 1:30 p.m. which will be held in the district courtroom due to the anticipation of citizen participation. At this meeting the Emergency Service District Committee members will give a report to the Commissioners concerning their recommendation on whether to create an Emergency Service District.
The San Saba County Commissioners Court met at 9 a.m. Wednesday, February 24th in the County Judge’s Chambers. Judge Byron Theodosis called the meeting to order. Kenley Kroll gave the invocation followed by everyone joining for the pledges to the American and Texas flags.
Sheriff L.A. Brown reported that his department needed to change a part-time employee to full-time in order to replace a dispatcher, and hire an additional part-time employee. Sheriff Brown brought the current stacks of two separate forms of calls taken by dispatchers. Their plan is to consolidate to one form to be more time efficient and to save paper. There was discussion regarding ordering of supplies, recent weather conditions caused one wreck (no injuries) and several cars went off road, and the need for Sheriff’s Department Reserve Officers.
Action was taken on the following items:
1. Approved the lease between San Saba County and the Appraisal District for property at 423 Wallace Street that will take effect January 1, 2011.
2. One employee added for Precinct 1 by Commissioner Otis Judkins.
3. Approved the accounts payables.
4. One item regarding a settlement was tabled because more information was needed.
Judge Theodosis adjourned the meeting. Those in attendance were: County Judge, Byron Theodosis; Commissioners, Roger McGehee, Kenley Kroll, Rickey Lusty, Otis Judkins; County Clerk, Kim Wells; Administrative Assistant, Cathi Miles; County Treasurer, Gayla Hawkins; County Coordinator, Marsha Hardy; County Sheriff, L.A. Brown; Jail Administrator, Brenda Willis; and San Saba News & Star Reporter, Alice Smith.
