Williamson County Commissioners have taken the first steps toward a potential bond election in the fall.
Commissioners formed a citizen’s bond committee at a meeting March 5 to review if the county needs bond funds for county roads and parks. The committee must report back to Commissioners Court with specific needs no later than July 4. The commissioners will then decide whether to hold a bond election in November.
County commissioners appointed nine members for the citizen’s bond committee: two per county precinct and a chair.
County Judge Bill Gravell appointed David Hays to the bond committee’s chair. Precinct 1 Commissioner Terry Cook appointed Meg Walsh and Mitch Fuller. Precinct 2 Commissioner Cynthia Long appointed Joe Bob Ellison and Matt Powell. Tim Lear and John Marler were appointed by Precinct 3 Commissioner Valerie Covey. Precinct 4 Commissioner Russ Boles appointed Ron Randig and Bryon Brochers.
