Utility usage review on commissioners' agenda
Routine items top the agenda for Monday's meeting of the Howard County Commissioner's Court, including a review of utility usage at county facilities and approval of a contract with an electricity provider.
County Judge Mark Barr is expected to review utility usage at county buildings, as well as conduct an executive session to discuss real estate issues with the current Justice of the Peace office located in the city of Coahoma.
One agenda item, however, is certainly not the norm, as Barr said he asked that discussion surrounding the upcoming Feb. 28 joint meeting between county officials and officials with the city of Big Spring be placed on the agenda “just in case.”
“I had that (item) added to the agenda just in case the commissioners wanted to discuss the meeting between the commissioners court and the city,” Barr said. “As you know, we can't discuss an issue if it isn't on the agenda. As far as I know, there isn't anything new for us to discuss yet, but I wanted to make sure we could talk about it if we needed to.”
