County commissioners last week temporarily tabled an agenda item regarding Hood County’s policy for leasing advertising space. They did so at the request of new County Attorney Lori Kaspar, who said she had not had a chance to review the matter.
At issue is the new directional signage that the city of Granbury wants to place at locations on the square, as well as in the historic district. The city wants to put some of the signs on the courthouse square, which is owned by the county. State law forbids county governments from giving away advertising space, County Judge Darrell Cockerham explained.
Also to be considered is a request from a company that has approached county officials about having a link on the county’s website to another website that will contain advertising and promotions for the county.
