The San Augustine County Commissioners’ Court will have a regular meeting at 9 a.m. this morning and among the agenda items for discussion and appropriate action will be granting permission to apply for National Resilience Grant.
County Judge Administrative Assistant and Project Manager Sandy Jenkins tells us the county has qualified for the grant by having received reimbursement for forest fires in 2011 and 2012. She added San Augustine County will be sending in the pre-application and will wait to see the response from the General Land Office if the county can apply for funds.
In addition, commissioners will post bid notice for a smooth drum roller for Pct. 3; open rock and fuel bids; appoint the San Augustine County Historical Commission for 2015; and discuss and possibly take action on the donation of fence panels to the San Augustine Cowboy Church.
San Augustine Main Street is also requesting use of the courthouse facilities and parking area for the “Junk in the Trunk” on Saturday, Feb. 7; and the court will join with members of VFW Post 9313 for laying of a wreath at the Veterans Memorial on the courthouse lawn following court.
