Roads top commissioner agenda

December 20, 2012

With roads on their mind, Howard County commissioners will meet for the last time in 2012 Friday.

Among the agenda items is discussion and possible action regarding a proposed agreement aimed at requiring area trucking companies profiting from the boom in the oilfield to help finance the rehabilitation of numerous county roads.

Commissioners have been working on the pact for several months, said County Judge Mark Barr.

“Overall, the damage is estimated at approximately $22 million right now,” Barr said. “This isn't something we're going to be able to fix all at one time, obviously.”

The museum's Christmas Tree Forest, featuring more than 50 individually decorated trees, will close Friday afternoon, Curator Tammy Schrecengost said.

The exhibit attracted hundreds of visitors this season.
