Commissioners hear concerns from Barksdale and CR 520 residents
A regularly held Edwards Çounty Commissioner’s Court meeting was called to order by County Judge Souli Shanklin this past Tuesday morning. All present in court stood and recited the Pledge of Allegiance followed by a prayer led by Commissioner Matt Fry. The County Clerk, Olga Lydia Reyes, called the roll, and all Commissioners were present.
Mark Norvell and Steve Smith, Barksdale residents who were signed up to speak during the open forum portion of the meeting, expressed their concern and need for some kind of permanent barrier to be built on county easement to prevent parking on and breaking water lines near school. Increased 18 wheeler and heavy equipment traffic is causing the water lines to leak and/or break, and although the lines are being repaired, it is quite costly constantly having to replace them. Norvell and Smith reported to the court that this issue is not just about the school, but that there are 90 active meters involved with this long term, ongoing issue. Since this topic was actually an agenda item, Judge Shanklin and the commissioners agreed to move the item up and take action, and the approval was granted for a permanent barrier to be put in place.
