Navarro County Commissioners gave thanks for the 4-H Food Show Program, which hosted a Thanksgiving luncheon after Monday's meeting. The program invited Commissioners and staff to enjoy a holiday feast to show appreciation for the court's continued support of Navarro County Extension Education.
“We are thankful for everything they do for the youth of our county. They do a good job.” said County Judge H.M. Davenport, who yielded the floor to Commissioners to share their 4-H experiences.
James Olsen, Pct. 4, recognized the importance of the programs offered to youth and adults through the extension program.
Eddie Moore, Pct. 3, credited the program with providing a positive influence for his children, who he said benefited greatly from the opportunities offered through the service.
“We wish y'all a happy Thanksgiving – a safe one.” Davenport said, reminding the crowd to be generous and joyful throughout the holiday season. “Be thankful, that's what it's all about.”
With rain in the forecast, Commissioners chose to take no action on the burn ban, which remains lifted.
The court awarded a request for proposal for Navarro County Building/Renovation Projects to David Long. The first project will be the Adult Probation Renovation Project in the amount of $70,000; the second will be the Courthouse Office totaling $10,350.
Commissioners approved a resolution and joint contract for the 2020 primary and runoff elections with the Navarro County Republicans and Democrats, as well as a contract for election services with cities, schools, and other political subdivisions in the county for the May 3, 2020 elections.
In other business, a final plat was approved for tracts in Plum Berry Acres; and the court approved a modification to a Texoma HIDTA grant, to be decreased to $3,140,249.
