The Yoakum County Commissioners Court met on Monday, December 3, where they addressed their weekly agenda.
First, on the agenda, the Court moved to audit and settle all accounts against the County and direct their payments. After looking over the bills and addressing any concerns a motion was made and unanimously approved to pay County bills that totaled $223,936.99 and Medical facility bills that totaled $164,024.03.
In their next item, the Court unanimously approved an annual fee of $725 on TAC CIRA for website hosting and content management.
The Court also unanimously approved a resolution to transfer Birth and Death Records for Justice of the Peace Precinct #1 to Justice of the Peace Precinct #2. JP #1 Marc Traweek was present to explain the need for the transfers to JP #2 Troy Scott. Traweek noted one of the reasons for the transfer was because of a larger population along with the location of the county hospital there were more deaths and births recorded in Denver City. Judge Scott agreed to note through November there have been 250 births and 34 deaths recorded in Denver City. The effective date will be December 3.
There was one road crossing permit submitted from Walsch Petroleum in Precinct #3, one request for disposal of county equipment, three-line item transfers, and no Soil Conservation request.
Commissioners Woody Lindsey, Ray Marion, Tommy Box, and Tim Addison, as well as County Judge Jim Barron, were all in attendance. The next meeting will be held on Monday, December 10, starting at 10 am.
