05.02.22 AM - BOCC
Josh Thomson of Public Works gives the regular weekly update to the commissioners. In addition, he discusses a list of roads that the North Central ATV club would like to see become eligible for WATV use. After taking Gunn Ranch Rd off the list, the commissioners decide the next step is to set up a meeting with the Forest Service, DNR and DFW to see if they have concerns about WATV use on the roads. Commissioners hear a request for $52,000 in ARPA funds to improve security at Dispatch and the District Court. This is in addition to the $35,000 grant the District Court has already received. Commissioners also update the spreadsheet of ARPA recipients. Finally, the Commissioners discuss preparation for the upcoming fire season with employees of the DNR.
