July 27, 2015 - The Shelby County Commissioners approved Debora Riley, Tax Assessor Collector, requested to hire a part time employee with a start date of mid August at the July 27th Commissioners Court meeting. This part time employee then would go full time when another employee leaves. This early hire date would enable training for the new employee.
Motion was made by Commissioner Rogers and seconded by Commissioner Lout to pay monthly expenses. Additional approved items on the agenda were the Interlocal Agreement between DETCOG and Shelby County for the year 2016-2017 for automatic location information and maintenance services for the 9-1-1 system.
A motion by Commissioner Lout and seconded by Commissioner Rogers was made to renew the current County Boat Agent agreement between Shelby County and the Texas Parks and Wildlife Department.
The Court voted to retain the local optional fees for vehicle registration to continue at the present rate. $1.50 of the collected fee is designated to be used by Shelby County Child Advocacy Center. Robin Connell, board member, thanked the Court for this assistance. With this assistance from the County, it helped the Advocacy Center in applying for grants.
