Repairs to Wilson County roads most greatly impacted by continued exploration, development, or production of oil and natural gas within the Eagle Ford shale region will get a slight boost. At the April 14 meeting of the Wilson County Commissioners Court, Emergency Management Coordinator LeAnn Hosek said the county received notification of a $959,192 grant award related to Senate Bill 1747.

The funds represent a portion of $225 million being distributed by the Texas Department of Transportation to counties with roads, bridges, and culverts directly impacted by the harvesting of petrochemicals within the Eagle Ford shale and Permian Basin. Hosek said the county will be able to seek reimbursement for qualifying projects. (See “Commissioners set roads-grant priorities,” March 3.)

Also during the meeting, Wilson County Pct. 2 Justice of the Peace Sara Canady suggested that the commissioners approve the implementation of Senate Bill 1419, which would allow a juvenile case manager to be funded by half of a $2 fee being collected from truancy defendants. Canady said the goal of the program is to act to divert youngsters from intentionally missing school, which is a crime.

Canady said her court last year heard more than 300 truancy cases. Thus far this year, she already has heard 230.

The commissioners tabled Canady’s proposal until their next meeting, due to a discrepancy in the verbiage of the associated agenda item.

The commissioners also tabled action related to a benefit for membership to the AirMedCare network for county employees. James Floyd of Methodist AirCare said that with the county’s work-force size, he could offer a $45-per-month plan that will eliminate out-of-pocket expenses for those who require air ambulance transport, such as in an AirLife helicopter. Usually, he said, these bills can run as much as $30,000, of which insurance companies typically pay just $5,000.

The county’s insurance committee will review the proposal and it could recommend the item be included among a la carte items that employees could elect during open enrollment.

In other business, the commissioners:

•Recognized 911 dispatchers from the Wilson County Sheriff’s Office in honor of National Public Safety Telecommunicators Week, April 13-19.

•Accepted the donation of two picnic tables and a bicycle rack for the Sam Fore Jr. Wilson County Public Library. The items are being donated by Kristi Seesengood and Emily Segal as part of a Girl Scout project.

Also in attendance: Commissioners Albert Gamez Jr., Paul Pfeil, Ricky Morales, and Larry Wiley; Assistant County Attorney Katherine Chapman, Sheriff Joe D. Tackitt Jr., County Treasurer Jan Hartl, Coordinator Edwin Baker of the Wilson County Health and Public Safety Office, Wilson County Pct. 4 Justice of the Peace Richard “Dickie” Jackson, County Auditor Tom Dupnick, Library Director Nicki Stohr, and Lisa Eberhardt of the Wilson County Auditor’s Office.
