Brazoria County
Brazoria County Commissioners Court
by Garrett Bryce
Wednesday, December 14, 2011

Brazoria County Commissioners Court on Tuesday voted unanimously to lift a burn ban order implemented due to drought and wildfire conditions in the area during the past nine months.

The order temporarily terminated the burn ban, and put in place an automatic reinstatement of a ban on outdoor burning should the state’s drought index for the county reach a specific level.

The commissioners court voted to issue an order prohibiting the sale and use of certain fireworks in the county during the New Year’s fireworks sales season.

The order prohibits “skyrockets with sticks” and “missiles with fins” for sale and use within the unincorporated areas of the county.

The commissioners court voted to designate Commissioner Stacy Adams as representative and Commissioner Larry Stanley as alternate to the Houston-Galveston Area Council Board of Directors.

The commissioners court voted to appoint Commissioner Matt Sebesta, Jr. as primary voting member and Commissioner Donald “Dude” Payne as alternate to the H-GAC Transportation Policy Council.

The commissioners court also appointed County Engineer Gerald Roberts as primary voting member and Assistant County Engineer Michael Shannon to the H-GAC Technical Advisory Committee.

The commissioners court voted to appoint Gary Idoux, Freddy Brown, Jeffery Moore, Tom Stansel and H.L. Baker to the Brazoria County Toll Road Authority Board of Directors.

The commissioners court voted to appoint Matina Bonnen, Scott McCaskill, Wayne Mathis and Terry Ruiz to the Brazoria County Library System Board.

The commissioners court voted to appoint Karen DeJean and reappoint Robert Flick to the Gulf Coast Center Board of Trustees.

The commissioners court voted to cancel the county’s contract with Trantex for the purchase of safety traffic paint and beads.  The contract was awarded to secondary vendor Ennis Paint.  Trantex was unable to renew its contract with the current terms and conditions.

All items were approved.  All votes were unanimous with all members present, with the exception of an item approving a public hearing for the FY2010 CAPER Report, during which Sebesta was not present.  Agenda
