ARTICLE DESCRIPTION:

Washington County supervisors, Nov. 13, approved tax abatements totaling $4,010 involving seven mobile home properties that had been removed, demolished or partially demolished although tax liabilities remain on them.

The taxes ranged from 2013 through 2017 and to the first half of 2019, collection of which was deemed “impractical.”

The board also approved a contract with Elert & Associates Technology Consultants of Waco, Texas, at a total cost of $186,000 for contract administration follow-up.

The contract was reviewed by the county attorney, who reportedly was satisfied with it. The services are related to the new communications equipment/building.

The board also approved four new employees for the Washington County Jail: Cody Kreutz, casual part-time; Brady Bages, regular part-time; Sarah Garrett, casual part-time and Trevor Owens, casual part-time. All are effective Nov. 13 at $17.05 per hour.

The board then conducted the official canvas of votes for the Nov. 6 election. The board met at 3 p.m. to allow time for all materials to be assembled for review. No changes in the election outcome were found.
