HOUSTON COUNTY – The Houston County Commissioners Court met in a brief, five-minute meeting on Friday, June 29.
Once the welcome, invocation and pledges had been disposed of, County Judge Jim Lovell moved the meeting into the actionable items portion of the agenda.
The first order of business, as stated on the agenda, was to “Discuss and consider awarding a contract from received bids for the sale of a 140M3 motor grader for Precinct Three.”
First Assistant Auditor Brittani Womack addressed the court and informed the commissioners the county had only received one bid in the amount of $240,000, from an excavation company.
A motion was made, seconded and approved to accept the bid and award the contract to the excavation company.
The next order of business was to, “Discuss and consider action on accepting as information the FY (fiscal year) 2017 audit report as prepared by Todd, Hamaker and Johnson.”
With very little discussion, a motion was made, seconded and unanimously approved to accept the 2017 audit report as information.
The audit will be discussed in detail at a future commissioners court meeting.
With no further business, the meeting was adjourned at 9:05 a.m.
