Commissioners continue budget, review septic system fees/duties in closed session

Montague County Commissioners face a lengthy agenda of business at a 9 a.m. June 13 meeting including fees and duties of the county sewer/septic inspector and a budget workshop.
The discussion of the septic inspector duties is set for an executive session with any action back in open session.
In the budget workshop, county officials are expected to start presenting their budget proposals for the new fiscal year. Final certified values will not be available until late July.
The Montague County 4-H members will make their annual interpretation to the court reviewing some of their activities for the past year. The Upper Trinity Water Groundwater Conservation District staff also will provide an update on its work this year.
Several annual tasks are scheduled including the court going out for bids for gravel and various sizes of rock; the county investment policy will be reviewed; endorsement of the Texoma Area Paratransit System new administrative/operations facility and future transit terminal; vendor licensing addendum with Justice Solutions; request unclaimed property capital credits for counties from the Texas Comptroller; and consider the North Texas Tri-County Child Fatality Review Team Interagency Agreement.
Facing rising gas and diesel prices commissioners will consider amending the fuel line item to cover a projected shortfall of $25,150.
Atmos Energy Corporation will submit three right-of-way road bore applications for work in precincts two, three and four on Haney Road, Tage Road, Harper Road and Lonestar Road. Unanticipated revenue from those permits also will be approved.
More property development is coming to the county with several preliminary plats up for review: Lots 1-30 Carter Heights, 63.82 acres in the Daniel Farris Survey; lots 1-5 Kingdom Heights, 30 acres in the S.A. Mills Survey; lots 1-2, Kingdom Heights II, 10.03 acres in the T.E.&L Co. Survey and lots 1-13 Stonewood Ranch 48.87 acres in the Henry D. Lindsey subdivision.
