August 19, 2016 - Notice is hereby given that a Special meeting of the governing body of the City of Timpson will be held on the 22nd day of August 2016 at 5:30 pm. at the City Hall, 456 Jacob Street, Timpson, Texas, at which time the following subjects will be considered, to-wit:
1. Discuss and take action: The Council will discuss sending a 60 day written notice to McCreary, Veselka, Bragg & Allen P.C. (MVBA) to terminate the contract to collect past due fines and fees for the Municipal Court. During the February 16th Council meeting, Mayor Pro Tem Wolfe and Councilmembers Grace and Baker voted to hire MVBA over the firm of Linebarger & Goggan to collect the past due accounts of the Court. To date, MVBA has made no significant effort to begin the collection process and has shown very little interest in the City’s collection needs. To our knowledge no case files have been transferred for collection.
2. Discuss and take action: The Council will discuss to amend the previous Ordinance to hire Linbarger & Goggan to collect fines and fees of the Municipal Court.
3. Discuss and take action: The Council will discuss entering into a contract to immediately start Municipal Court collections with Linbarger & Goggan.
The Council reserves the right to retire into executive session concerning any of the items listed on this agenda whenever it is considered necessary and is legally justified under the Open Meetings Act.
