A resolution to permanently close a portion of a county road in the Tubbs Addition will highlight a routine meeting of Howard County Commissioners Court at 10 a.m. Monday.
The road dead-ends in front of two homes and both owners have petitioned the county to close the road to through traffic.
â€śit's pretty simple, really,â€ť county Judge Mark barr said. â€śBoth property owners are in agreement over this. All it takes is a resolution.â€ť
Also Monday, commissioners will hear a report from Sheriff Stan Parker on the ethnic profile of county jail prisoners during 2012.
Barr said Parker is annually required to give such a report to show if minorities make up a disproportionate number of arrestees within the county.
In other business, commissioners will consider:
â€˘ The monthly financial report and invoices, purchase requests and budget amendments.
â€˘ Personnel matters.
â€˘ Permission to the road and bridge department to advertise bids for equipment.
The meeting will be held in the commissioners' courtroom on the third floor of the Howard County courthouse.
