In the face of unprecedented heavy truck traffic in the region due to the ongoing oil and natural gas exploration and production activities in the Eagle Ford shale formation, the Wilson County Sheriff’s Office soon will increase its commercial-vehicle-enforcement efforts. At its May 12 meeting, the Wilson County Commissioners Court voted unanimously for the sheriff’s office to amend its budget to finance the training of a deputy specifically for that purpose.

Wilson County Sheriff Joe D. Tackitt Jr. said that a current deputy likely would be sent to training in June. An additional deputy would be hired to succeed the truck-enforcement deputy in his or her former assignment.

Tackitt said the southern and eastern areas of the county are being hardest hit by truckers who speed, operate unsafe equipment, or even drive without a license.

Also during the meeting, the commissioners amended their April 28 order related to smoking being prohibited within 20 feet of certain county buildings. The order now prohibits smoking within 20 feet of the “courthouse square,” despite Assistant County Attorney Katherine Chapman insistance that it only refers to the buildings on the square -- including the Wilson County Courthouse and annex, the Sam Fore Jr. Wilson County Public Library, and the Tax Assessor/Collector’s Office. A designated smoking area, which will include a picnic table, will be established on the square.

In other business, architect Lyndsay Thorn said he hopes the project to renovate and stabilize the Wilson County Courthouse will begin this month. He said workers first will target the building’s foundation, followed by its walls, exterior envelope, and interior. Thorn estimates it will take up to eight months before the area is fit to be occupied once again.

Also in attendance: Wilson County Judge Marvin Quinney and Commissioners Albert Gamez Jr., Paul Pfeil, Ricky Morales, and Larry Wiley; County Treasurer Jan Hartl, County Clerk Eva Martinez, Coordinator Edwin Baker of the Wilson County Health and Public Safety Office, Emergency Management Coordinator LeAnn Hosek, Wilson County Pct. 3 Justice of the Peace Jim Burdette, Wilson County Pct. 4 Justice of the Peace Richard “Dickie” Jackson, County Auditor Tom Dupnick, Lisa Eberhardt of the Wilson County Auditor’s Office, Voter Registrar Olga Marrero, Extension Agent Bryan Davis, John Holcombe of the Information Technology department, and Library Director Nicki Stohr.
