The Eagle Ford shale oil and natural gas play continues to bring wealth and opportunity to the region. It also has created unprecedented maintenance challenges for Wilson County’s highway infrastructure.

At its June 9 meeting, the Wilson County Commissioners Court heard from Patricia Korzekwa, who asked for a solution to the rapidly declining condition of C.R. 247 near Three Oaks. Korzekwa said that when EOG Resources opened a nearby propane facility, the company paved the road. But now, according to a recent traffic study, approximately 422 vehicles use the rural thoroughfare each day, which has returned the road to its former gravel state.

A saltwater processing facility operated by Cleantech LLC recently opened on C.R. 247 as well, Korzekwa said. The dust kicked up by speeding trucks has affected her crops and has become a strain on humans and animals alike.

“We can’t live like this,” she said. “Our garden is terrible. Our cattle won’t graze on the coastal (hay).”

Wilson County Pct. 2 Paul Pfeil indicated that his hands currently are tied. While the road ranked second on a list of those slated to benefit from $959,000 in grant funds from Senate Bill 1147, the status of the program currently is in limbo. La Salle County has sued the Texas Department of Transportation over perceived problems with the rules of the $225 million grant program.

Pfeil said if his precinct spends funds to remedy C.R. 247, that money will not be reimbursed by the grant. Furthermore, he said temporary fixes like applying water to the road will not work due to rapid evaporation by ongoing hot, windy weather conditions.

“I’ve got 300 miles of dirt road and I can’t water them all,” he said.

While Pfeil said he would contact EOG to ask the company for its cooperation, he cannot make them help.

Also during the meeting, the commissioners:

•Accepted the Wilson County Development Review Committee’s June 5 recommendation to grant a plat for the 30-unit Black Canyon Recreational-Vehicle Park near the Promised Land Dairy on S.H. 97 West near Floresville. For more about the committee’s June 5 meeting, see article page 8A.

•Reached a consensus that County Attorney Daynah Fallwell should hire a contractor to troubleshoot and remedy the cause of flooding in her current office location in Courthouse Annex III.

Also in attendance: Wilson County Judge Marvin Quinney and commissioners Albert Gamez Jr., Ricky Morales, and Larry Wiley; Assistant County Attorney Katherine Chapman, Sheriff Joe D. Tackitt Jr., County Clerk Eva Martinez, County Treasurer Jan Hartl, Emergency Management Coordinator LeAnn Hosek, County Auditor Tom Dupnick, and Lisa Eberhardt of the Wilson County Auditor’s Office.
