Commissioners to accept examination reports
The Hays County Commissioners Court is set to receive an audit of several accounts belonging to the Hays County Sheriff’s Office.
At its meeting this morning, the court will accept the Fiscal Year 2018 Internal Examination Reports for the jail commissary account, federal discretionary account and drug forfeiture fund. In accordance with state law, the auditor’s office performed internal examinations of the three funds and their records and found that all the “receipts and disbursements appear to be adequately accounted for” and the records for the three accounts were found to be “accurately maintained in accordance with statutory requirements,” letters from the county auditor’s office state.
The commissioners are also slated to discuss and consider action on a memorandum of understanding with the Bureau of Land Management for maintenance on Remote Automated Weather Stations (RAWS). The county RAWS require yearly maintenance to make sure that fire and flood data are collected based on protocol. The Bureau of Land Management has a centralized remote sensing/fire weather support unit facility to maintain environmental monitoring equipment for mutual benefit.
In other business, the commissioners will consider a multiple use agreement between the county and the Texas Department of Transportation for the installation of flood warning equipment within TxDOT right-of-ways and state highway property. The agreement is to help the county “provide up-to-date safety, traffic, and flood-related information” to residents.
The Hays County Commissioners Court will meet at 9 a.m. on the third floor of the Hays County Courthouse, 111 San Antonio St. Meetings are also streamed live.
