County Commissioners seek advice on lease



However, upon further review in the wake of the item’s passage, commissioners determined that the original request for a water line had been correct. The gas line notation had been supplemental information in reference to other utilities on the property, according to  Smith and Rogers.
However, since the item had already been amended, voted on and passed as a gas line crossing, commissioners determined it will have to be brought back before the commission at a future meeting for another vote, this time for a water line crossing.
Commissioners also approved a lengthy list of canceled purchase orders for items no longer needed by a number of volunteer fire departments in the county, with many of the canceled purchase orders for Fuelman cards that were not needed for fuel purchases.
Fire departments with canceled purchase orders approved by the county commissioners included the Bugtussle, Blanco, Blue, Canadian, Gaines Creek, Haywood/Arpelar, Russellville and Sam’s Point volunteer fire departments.
