After approving reports from Sheriff Larry Gilbreath, District Clerk Paige Lindsey, County Clerk Kim Carter, Justice of the Peace Judge Angie P. Garza, County Judge J.D. Wagner and the Ag Extension Office, Commissioners Court heard a preliminary presentation of an application for the approval of a subdivision known as J&B Acres by Trey Didway. Mr. Didway said he was expecting to have the plans in hand at the time of the meeting, but since they were not, he asked that action be tabled until the December 22 Commissioners Court meeting. Also present with Didway were Beaver Cottrell and John Fehr, owners of J&B cres LLC.
The site is located on HWY 380 a little over a mile past the city limits. The project consists of thirty acres comprising 18 lots. Commercial lots will be facing the Tahoka Road and residential lots, two acres each, will be behind that. Caliche roads will be constructed. Each home constructed will be a minimum of 1300 square feet and will have a water well and septic tank.
Commissioner Mike Swain stated that the roads would have to meet state speculations but since no one knew what those were, Swain would check into it and get the information to the LLC. Specifications should be available for commissioners to take action on the request at the next meeting.
Brad Tankersley, who currently works for Commissioner Kirby Keesee, was one of three applicants for Airport Manager. He was chosen by the Airport Board and approved by the Commissioners Court.
Extension agent Zach Bradshaw was present again to discuss the purchase of a trailer for the 4-H department. Commissioner Franks had researched some trailers and Bradshaw said he would follow up to see how they fit the needs by the next meeting. Action on the purchase needs to happen before the end of the year.
The next Commissioners Court will be December 22 at the Annex.
