Washington County Commissioners will look to set a public hearing for the establishment of a new road district at their meeting Tuesday.
Commissioners will consider setting a date of December 22nd to gauge public input on the creation of the Pecan Glen Road District, located within the Extraterritorial Jurisdiction (ETJ) of the City of Brenham. The proposed district, consisting of approximately 138 acres between Old Mill Creek Road and FM 389, would cover roads in the Pecan Glen subdivision including Desirable Circle, Success Court, Pecan Glen Road, and Stuart Road.
If created, the purpose of the proposed district is to issue no more than $950,000 in bonds for constructing, acquiring, improving, maintaining and operating roads. Any bonds issued by the proposed district will be payable from ad valorem taxes levied on all taxable property within the district.
The Brenham City Council at its meeting November 5th approved a resolution consenting to the creation of the district. City Attorney Cary Bovey said at the time that the city’s consent was required before commissioners could create the district.
If approved, the public hearing would be set for December 22nd at 9 a.m. inside the commissioner’s courtroom at the Washington County Courthouse.
Also in court Tuesday, commissioners will consider purchasing a generator for Washington County EMS Station No. 1. The Kohler outdoor natural gas generator is projected to cost $39,599.
Commissioners will also consider:
- Authorizing Washington County EMS to hire Lynn Burtschell as the Aviation Division Chief under the terms negotiated.
- An interlocal agreement between the county and Regional Public Defender Office (RPDO) Local Government Corporation. If approved, RPDO would provide qualified legal defense teams to represent indigent capital murder defendants in the county.
- Payment to the Texas Hotel and Lodging Association out of the Hotel Occupancy Tax fund.
- Formal notice for utility installation for a two-inch road bore at 8300 Somerville Terrace Lane in Precinct Three.
- A series of monthly reports from the Information Technology Department, the Emergency Management Coordinator, Environmental Health Department, district and county clerks, justices of the peace, auditor, tax assessor/collector, treasurer, and constables.
Commissioners will meet Tuesday morning at 9 a.m. at the Washington County Courthouse Annex.
