Veterans’ Day and Goal Zero Day scheduled


The Pecos County Commissioners’ Court met in regular session on Monday, Oct. 23.

The court approved a proclamation designating Nov. 10 as Veterans’ Day in Pecos County. They also approved a resolution referencing the 83rd District Attorney’s Border Prosecution Unit Grant for 2017-2018 submission.

As a result of the EMS Administrative Assistant completing CACO courses, the court approved paying her the remainder of stipend pay to total approximately $200 per month from July of this year to now and going forward.

Nov. 2 was proclaimed as Goal Zero Day in Pecos County. Judge Joe Shuster explained the proclamation was new and that it was a community road safety campaign focused on having no vehicle accidents resulting in an injury or fatality on this day.

A Right of Entry form for Linda T. Ramsey & Associates, Inc. and TxDOT was approved to conduct surveys of properties in Precinct 4 for the realignment of Highway 1776. The Predator Control Report from USDA-APHIS Wildlife Services was also approved.

All reports from Pecos County Memorial Hospital, the county auditor, and county treasurer were approved as presented.
