Commissioners eye changes to county subdivision ordinance
Polk County Enterprise - March 2009
LIVINGSTON — County Commissioners will consider adopting model rules drafted by the Texas Water Development Board as a supplement to the county’s subdivision ordinance during the regular session of Commissioners Court at 10 a.m. Tuesday. The rules would govern water and sewer service requirements to be followed by developers when creating subdivisions with four or more lots. The court also will consider increases in permit fees for onsite sewage facility installations, inspections or modifi cations occurring after April 1. The court is scheduled to review the status of the burn ban in effect for all unincorporated areas of Polk County. As the dry, windy conditions continue, the danger is growing for debris fi res escaping onto adjoining property and becoming wildfi res. Tuesday’s agenda also indicates the court will consider action related to the expiration of a letter of credit for road construction in Sunset Shores subdivision in Precinct 1. The court also will consider accepting the dedication of road and right-of-way for public maintenance of certain roads in Precinct 4. The roads under consideration are Magnolia Bend Drive and Ashton Bend. As part of Tuesday’s consent agenda, the court is expected to ratify an emergency agreement with Memorial Medical Center- Livingston for shelter services of disaster victims with special medical needs as well as their family members. A lease agreement for supplemental county parking at Sears is also on the consent agenda.
