Bowie County Commissioners Court (Video)

Bowie County TexasYesterday in Bowie County Commissioners Court, Derrick McGary and Ardis Richardson were reappointed to the Bowie County Housing Authority for two-year terms, and Wanda Looney was appointed to fill a vacancy.

The burn ban, which had been in place for several weeks, was lifted. There were reports that many people began burning accumulated debris after the rain saturated dry ground and grass, which for the most part was ignored by local officials. Precinct 4 Commissioner Mike Carter noted that yesterday’s Court was held on the first business day after the rain, but that waiting for a session of the Court to establish or lift burn bans could create unnecessary delays. He suggested that the Court grant County Judge James Carlow that authority, and the Court agreed to put that item on the agenda for the November 9 meeting.

The Court and attendees heard a report on the Hwy 82 Project from John Goodwin, the project’s chief supervisor. He said the rain wouldn’t slow things down very much, and still expects most of the project to be completed before Christmas.
