At their first meeting of the new year, the Stephens County Commissioners approved the two fuel bids they received and took care of several other business items. They also did not take any action on a burn ban for the county.

On Jan. 9, the commissioners opened bids from All Star Fuel and PF&E Oil Company for fuel for County vehicles. All Star offered 10 cents off per gallon for unleaded and diesel, and PF&E offered 5 cents off per gallon. The commissioners voted to accept both bids.

Fire Marshal Wayne McMullen said he had spoken with Breckenridge Fire Chief Malcolm Bufkin and that they are keeping a close eye on the local situation but do not recommend a burn ban yet. The Texas A&M Forest Service shows that Young and Eastland counties have burn bans in place, but Shackelford and Palo Pinto counties do not.

In other business, the commissioners:

  • Approved a amendments to the 2022 budget
  • Approved the county’s membership with the AirMedCare network for county employees
  • Approved the county tax assessor-collector’s continuing education hours for 2022
  • Approved the county treasurer’s expenditure report.

The County Commissioners usually meet the second and fourth Mondays of each month, except when a holiday alters the schedule. For more information about the meetings, visit the Public Notices page of the Stephens County website.
