The County Commissioners met for a regular scheduled session Monday morning. Among the discussion was the annual report for the Jack County RVFD. Jeff Jackson reported that although the number of calls for grass fires are down (thanks to the spring rains) the calls for accidents, medical calls, and structure fires are up. In what is called a “10 year plan” agreement between the county and the JCRVFD, Jackson reported they were “about 3 years ahead of schedule in the purchase of trucks and equipment”. Thanks, in part, to public support as well as county contributions (including private donations) that have enabled the communities of Bryson and Perrin to bring in new or “gently used” equipment.
Also included in the meeting was a report from Alinda Cox, of the Texas A&M AgriLife Extension Service, who reported the results of several camps that 4H members have been participating. Cox mentioned the account of one of the members, Hoyt Nebken, who learned robotics while at a camp. She also told the commissioners of Ashley Cox (of Jacksboro) and Lynda Luttrull (Weatherford) and their trip this week to Brownwood for the State 4H Council. The girls will act as delegates to the Texas Council. Cox closed her presentation by giving each of the commissioners and Judge Davenport travel mugs from the students.
Commissioners will be meeting again August 3, for budget discussions and approvals.
