  • County holds off on park improvements

     

    The Taylor County Fiscal Court will add a water spigot and key to the outside of a building at Veterans Memorial Park, and will also fix a water leak.

    Otherwise, magistrates tabled any park improvements until after they receive bids to surplus the park and decide what to do about them.

    Those bids are due by May 9. Magistrates will look at those bids at their regular meeting on May 10. They want to wait to see if the park sells before acting on the fence or any other improvements.

  • County looks to surplus VMP

    The county is going forward with a plan to declare Veterans Memorial Park as surplus property.

    At a special-called meeting Thursday afternoon, magistrates voted unanimously for an invitation to bids on the property.
