County Commissioners met Friday morning


The Gray County Commissioners Court met on Friday morning for a regularly-scheduled meeting.

During the meeting, the Commissioners approved an inter-local agreement with Panhandle Regional Planning Commission for hazard mitigation.

“Every fives years every county has to have a hazard mitigation plan,” County Judge Chris Porter said. “The PRPC staff assists the county in developing, reviewing or changing the plan, if requested.”

As a result the County has to make a mitigation action team (MAT) and the County will pay $720 to the PRPC.

“If we have four people on the MAT team they basically take the base salary for one of those team members from PRPC and credit it back to the PRPC in grant form,” Porter said. “So we’re not actually paying money, it’s actually the hours our people are helping them develop or change the mitigation plan.”

The mitigation plans include backup generators, drainage, public communication system and storm shelters.

Earlier in the meeting, the Commissioners approved a resolution naming this week County 4-H week.

The Commissioners also approved:

• Bills as approved by County Auditor.

• Line item transfers.

• Budge amendments.

• Inter-local National Cooperative Purchasing Agreement for Gray County. This agreement is with Region 14 Educational Resource Center in Midland for office supplies at a discounted price.

• Change to 2022 Commissioners Court Schedule.

• Extending the Gray County Emergency declaration in response to COVID-19 pandemic.

The Commissioners postponed the following item:

• RFP for increased county broadband coverage.
