The San Saba County Commissioners' Court held a special meeting on Monday, November 26th. Judge Byron Theodosis called the meeting to order and asked Commissioner Roger McGehee to offer the invocation and lead the pledges of allegiance. This was Commissioner Wayland Perry's last meeting before his resignation became effective on November 30th. Commissioner Otis Judkins, Attorney David Williams, Clerk Kim Wells, Treasurer Gayla Hawkins, Coordinator Marsha Hardy, and Administrative Assistant Cathi Miles were present. Commissioner Ricky Lusty was not present.
Guests included Kathleen Hicks and Danielle Gilewski, who were representing West Texas Rural County Insurance Association. Ms. Hicks made the Court aware of their workman's compensation insurance plan. This company is made up of rural counties of less than 20,000 population and focuses on safety incentive programs, cash awards, and rural defense insurance. Their insurance program is specifically designed for counties like ours.
Among the Action Items were conservation contracts for road maintenance relevant to access for emergency vehicles on the following properties:
• Precinct 1 - Jim Brozo;
• Precinct 2 - William Ratliff and Dwain Carlisle; and
• Precinct 4 - Don and Anne Sanford.
Budget increases included $10,000 Emergency Funds towards the purchase of the new Hill Country County Transit District and an Emergency amendment for a new belly-dump truck for Precinct 4. The bid for the dump truck was won by Leach Trailers, the only bid.
The Burn Ban is lifted.
