San Jacinto News- Times - February 2009

COLDSPRING – San Jacinto County Commissioners appointed Historical Commission members and replaced members on the County Policy Committee last Wednesday during a regular meeting. Commissioners approved the appointments of three new members to the San Jacinto County Historical Commission following nominations by Pct. 3 Commissioner Butch Moody. Judy Hunter Schreiner, Rose Marie Leisner and Carolyn Jefferson will join Chairman Betty Magee, Vice Chairman Dr. John Rhoan, Carol Rhoan, Beth Nix, Marie Smith, Peggy Caldwell, Miller Thompson, Dorothy Bauer, Lizzie Thompson, Kimberly Warren and Billie Trapp on the board. Commissioners replaced one member on the county’s policy committee. Taking the place of former Pct. 3 Commissioner David Brandon is Pct. 4 Commissioner Mark Nettuno. Also serving on the committee, which oversees personnel issues and accounting procedures for the county, are County Auditor Carole Martin and County Treasurer Charlene Everitt. A motion was passed to accept a buy-in for commissioners in Pct. 2, Pct. 3 and Pct. 4 to utilize a 1999 Ford F250 4x4 four door truck in Pct. 1 used for the county’s sanitation program at the cost of $3,000 per precinct. Bonds were renewed for San Jacinto County Fire Marshal Leonard Stephens and for Assistant County Auditor Jennifer Vaughn. Commissioners approved an order authorizing the auditor’s offi ce to pay reoccurring bills. Also approved was a motion to advertise for bids for the county’s inmate commissary services at the San Jacinto County Jail. The lease of two Sharp MX- 350NB Imaging Systems from Dahill for the sheriff’s department was also approved. Commissioners approved paying the county’s bills with the exception of one in the amount of $2,700 for holding four stray cows for 33 days. The stray cows were picked up by the sheriff’s department in December and sold Jan. 10 for a total of about $1,300. According to San Jacinto County Judge Fritz Faulkner, the county will ask if the bill can’t be lowered before approving payment. Newly elected Sheriff James Walters said, “Give me a little bit of time and I will have something worked out that will save money on this in the future.”
