Commissioners canvass Nov. 7 election


The Pecos County Commissioners’ Court met in regular session on Nov. 13.

After a brief discussion, the commissioners approved the employment of part-time help for the Justice of the Peace in Precinct 3 for training purposes. The court also declared a Chevrolet service truck as surplus in order for the Imperial Fire Department to utilize it for training.

A repair to a radio tower in Precinct 4 was also approved. Petro Communications submitted a proposal to the court, stating the repair would cost approximately $9,000 and would be finished by end of year.

The court approved the renewal of the AirMedCare Network municipal site membership for a total of $61,842 annually. A payment for the repair of EMS 4 was also approved, with the funds being taken from JRAC funds.

The court discussed giving an election worker travel money for travel between Sheffield to Iraan. This was in reference to the Amendment Elections, held from Oct. 23 through Nov. 3, and on Election Day of Nov. 7. A motion to approve the travel pay was extended by Commissioner Mickey Jack Perry, but received no second. No other motion was given, and the item died.

The election of Nov. 7 was canvassed by the court. After a very brief discussion, the court voted to accept the counts as presented.
