Commissioners court reschedules June 25 meeting to Friday, June 21 at 9 a.m.


The Hood County Commissioners Court unanimously agreed to reschedule the June 25 meeting to Friday, June 21, at 9 a.m. due to scheduling conflicts.

While regular meetings of the HCCC normally take place on the second and fourth Tuesday of every month at 9 a.m., the June 25 meeting will not have a quorum present due to a training conference that occurs June 24-27.

Hood County Auditor Stephanie Matlock originally recommended the court reschedule the meeting to the afternoon of June 21, since budget hearings would take place that morning.

However, Precinct 4 Commissioner Dave Eagle will not be able to attend an afternoon meeting, which spurred Hood County Judge Ron Massingill to suggest moving the meeting to 10 a.m.

“Or we can go ahead and do it at 9 o'clock and if we need to adjust, everybody's going to be here anyway for the budget hearing,” Precinct 1 Kevin Andrews suggested. “Would that be OK to bump the budget hearing behind commissioner court?”

“That would be fine with me,” Massingill said.

Andrews entered a motion to reschedule the June 25 commissioners court to June 21 at 9 a.m., move the auditor deadline to June 13 at noon, and move the agenda item deadline to June 14 at 2 p.m. The measure passed unanimously.
