Washington County Commissioners will discuss the distribution of school land revenues at their meeting Tuesday.

Commissioners will consider the approval of the 2019-20 school lands report and the disbursement of funds to Brenham and Burton ISDs.

The court annually distributes revenue from school land in Tom Green County to the two school districts, based on average daily attendance (ADA).  The revenue comes from mineral rights, along with farming and hunting leases.

Also at Tuesday’s meeting, commissioners will potentially approve the purchase of materials needed for framing the Washington County EMS hangar in EMS District #5, located at the Washington Volunteer Fire Department.  The cost of the materials is $37,978.

The court will also consider an agreement between the Sheriff’s Office and Keefe Commissary Network, LLC for resident banking software and commissary services at the Washington County Jail.

Commissioners will also consider:

  • Approving the county engineer to accept a donation from Thistle Creek Ranch for road improvements to a section of Mertins Creek Lane in Precinct One.
  • A bond renewal for Reserve Deputy Sheriff Alfonzo Gomez, Jr.
  • Proclaiming October 2020 as Domestic Violence Awareness Month in Washington County.
  • Reports from the Sheriff’s Office, EMS, E-911, IT Department, and the veterans service officer.

Commissioners will meet Tuesday morning at 9 a.m. at the Washington County Courthouse, as early voting continues inside the courthouse annex.
