The Wilson County Commissioners Court has joined a growing group of governing bodies in a chorus of opposition to Agenda 21, with a resolution that was unanimously approved during the commissioners’ April 22 meeting.

Adkins-area resident Ralph Gerhardt, who asked the commissioners to consider a resolution, said that Agenda 21 was adopted by the United Nations at a 1992 conference in Rio de Janeiro, Brazil. It is a comprehensive plan that includes elements such as sustainable development, relinquishment of the private ownership of farmland, and population control measures aimed at systematically decreasing the global population from approximately 7 billion to 500 million residents, alleged Gerhardt and Poth Mayor Travis Pruski.

The Poth City Council voted in October to reject Agenda 21. Pruski said some of its recommendations have become criteria for certain federal grants, which is why the city since has rejected some federal funds.

Additional articles about Agenda 21 and its far-reaching impact are available at wilsoncountynews.com.

Also during the meeting, the commissioners:

•Approved standard forms of agreement with ThornGraves Architects related to design services ahead of renovation of the Wilson County Courthouse and a new county library.

•Accepted a bid of $100 per ton from AJO Trucking for hauling material related to road repairs being funded by a recent disaster relief grant.

•Accepted a bid of $3,000 for the purchase of a 1990 Kenworth semi tractor submitted by Edna Luna and a $400 bid submitted by Larry Sanchez for the purchase of a 1967 trailer. Both pieces of equipment were declared as surplus property by Wilson County Pct. 1.

•Granted permission for Wilson County Pct. 4 Justice of the Peace Richard “Dickie” Jackson’s office to allocate $1,029.45 from the Justice Court Technology Fund to purchase a Fujitsu sheet-fed scanner.

In attendance: Wilson County Judge Marvin Quinney and commissioners Albert Gamez Jr., Paul Pfeil, Ricky Morales, and Larry Wiley; County Clerk Eva Martinez, County Attorney Daynah Fallwell, Sheriff Joe D. Tackitt Jr., County Auditor Verna Gorzell, Treasurer Jan Hartl, Library Director Nicki Stohr, Lisa Eberhardt of the Wilson County Auditor’s Office, Emergency Management Coordinator LeAnn Hosek, Coordinator Edwin Baker of the Wilson County Health and Public Safety Office, Pct. 4 Justice of the Peace Richard “Dickie” Jackson, and Poth Mayor Travis Pruski.
