County road use fees gaining strength

August 10, 2013

Further movement toward establishing a road use fee and finding a new justice of the peace will top the agenda when Howard County commissioners meet at 10 a.m. Monday in the third-floor courtroom of the county courthouse.
Commissioners will review a recent opinion from the Texas Attorney General's office that gives a green light — for the most part — to plans to charge a fee to oil field company trucks which use county roads. That money would be used to help pay for needed repairs to the deteriorating roads.

John Littlejohn, owner and chief scientist (PhD from Harvard University in Geological Sciences) and executive head of and founder of V.V. Water Company, LLC, held a public meeting Thursday to propose building a pipeline that would supply West Texas with artesian spring water from the Edwards aquifer.
