County Commissioners voted to leave the county-wide burn ban off for week beginning today, Monday, Dec. 10, at their regular meeting. They also accepted several bids and approved the security bonds for several county officials and employees.

Burn Ban

During their meeting, Breckenridge Fire Chief Calvin Chaney requested that the burn ban be lifted for one week, then automatically be reinstated next week. Following a discussion with Chaney, commissioners voted to lift the ban effective immediately for seven days and then have it automatically reinstated on Tuesday, Dec. 18.

Chaney told commissioners that they had a lot of people wanting to burn and that taking it off for a week will give people a few days to burn brush.

Tractor Bids

The commissioners received and accepted two bids, one each for the two used backhoes the county is selling. Richard Huckaby bid $5,850 for the 1989 Case Backhoe, and Brad Moss bid $17,900 for the 2005 Case Backhoe.

Crushed rock and road materials bids, surety bonds

Commissioners also received and accepted bids from Ingram Concrete and Zach Burkett out of Graham to supply crushed rock and road materials for the year 2019.


In other business, commissioners approved surety bonds for several county employees and elected officials. Those included: Sharon Trigg, Stephens County Treasurer; Jackie Ensey, Stephens County Clerk; Crystal Shook, Deputy Tax Assessor/Collector; Brenda Mahan, Deputy District Clerk; Valerie Gallegos, Deputy Tax Assessor/Collector; Steven Spoon, Stephens County Justice of the Peace; Christie Coapland,  District Clerk; and Christie Latham, Stephens County Tax Assessor/Collector.
