The Hardin County Commissioners Court approved the adoption of several resolutions during their regular meeting on Tuesday, February 27.
Representatives from the Gift of Life asked the Court to adopt Resolution 7-18 proclaiming February 27, 2018 as the Gift of Life Men’s Health Awareness Day.
“We appreciate the consideration of the proclamation,” said one of the representatives. They explained that the Gift of Life helps to fund male health screenings including follow up and treatments. The Resolution was approved for adoption.
Justin Meyer, Development Specialist with Arx Advantage was in attendance to ask the Court to adopt Resolution 8-18. This Resolution is in reference to the proposed acquisition and rehabilitation of the Sweetwater Apartments development near Sour Lake. Meyer said they plan to do about $1.4 million in renovations on the property. Precinct 3 Commissioner Ken Pelt said this is a group of older apartments specified for those at the 60% income level and lower. “This is very important to that group,” said Pelt. The Resolution was approved.
The Hardin County Emergency Management Coordinator, Aaron Tupper, requested that the Court approve the adoption of three Resolutions that authorize the submission applications for grants. 9-18 is for the Edward Byrne Memorial Justice Assistance Grant (JAG), 10-18 is the Law Enforcement Terrorism Prevention Activity (LETPA), and 11-18 is the State Homeland Security Program (SHSP). Before approving those resolutions, County Judge Wayne McDaniel confirmed that those are grants that the county applies for annually.
After the Court wrapped up action on the agenda items, an update regarding debris pickup was provided. A representative from AshBritt said they have been working on Cooks Lake Road in Lumberton, Pecan Park, and roads off Mitchell Road.
