Commissioners to vote on letter to TCEQ about BRA

At their regular meeting Tuesday (Feb. 26), commissioners will vote on resending a draft letter to the Texas Commission on Environmental Quality (TCEQ) asking for “party status” on any hearings involving the Brazos River Authority (BRA). It’s tied to recommendations that County Judge Darrell Cockerham and Commissioner Steve Berry received from TCEQ officials when they went to Austin to meet with them about the BRA on Friday, Feb. 15. Those who have party status are notified in advance of hearings and meetings. County and city officials say they want “a seat at the table” on anything involving BRA and water rights.
