BONHAM – Fannie County commissioners have allowed the county to end the announcement of the Coveid 19 disaster because it does not have a seven-day extension motion.
The commissioners are reviewing, updating and extending the disaster announcement at each meeting, usually following a report on current case numbers by Fannie County Judge Randy Moore. But after nearly an hour of public comment on Tuesday, most of the Biden administration’s more than 100 workers opposed the vaccine mandate of employers and questioned whether there was an epidemic, with no commissioner stepping forward to extend the announcement. Not increased
Disasters are announced so that the county can receive federal and state funding to help with rehabilitation. Although they allow government officials to exercise emergency powers to protect lives, property and public health, the Fanon County Declaration contains the latest guidelines from the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, according to the government. Greg Abbott’s executives command GA-13, GA-38 and GA-39.
Commissioners may choose to reinstate the disaster declaration at future meetings.
Moore reported Monday that Fennon County has a total of 4,201 Cowed 19 cases since March 2020 and 119 active. Moore said three people in the county died last week from Covid 19, bringing the death toll to 123.
Fanon County is in the Trauma Service Area E, which includes the Dallas-Fort Worth metroplex, and the hospitalization rate for TSA fell slightly from 23.23 percent last week to 22.19 percent.
“I think every individual and family should decide what is right about what you do with the vaccine,” Moore said.
The judge lamented the lack of unity in the country during the epidemic, urging the people to be relieved to know that not every mind will change, to agree to disagree and move forward.
“It’s bothering you, it’s bothering me, about what the real problem is in life and what your purpose is as an individual,” he said.
Touching on the Biden administration’s vaccine mandate, Moore said the county could announce a county to send to Abbott, which the county opposes. Earlier in the meeting, Moore rejected the mandate on the grounds that the government was ordering “what we are going to do, and what we should do, and how we are going to do it.”
In other business, Moore, along with commissioners, set a speed limit of 30 mph on CR 2037 and 2038 in Pre-Event 1.
The new momentum came when the commissioners opened a public hearing on the subject, and before the discussion on dust on CR 2037 and 2038 as a result of the United Sand and Gravel business in INH.
A roadside resident told commissioners that dust hangs in the air after the truck starts using the road at around 3pm on Monday to Saturday. The resident said the dust in the air is not only heavy enough to cause potential health concerns, it also causes landlords along the way to replace air filters more frequently.
Commissioner Edwina Lane said the new speed limit should help some people with the problem of dust, adding that she has also talked to United Sand & Gravel owners about watering the roads.
Heath McKeog, owner of United Sand & Gravel, said the company was developing more control methods to deal with the dust. McKeog said the company hired employees and added water to the road, and the company put up speed limits before discussing it in the commissioners’ court.
“We’re not bad neighbors there,” McKeog said.
Asked if the company offered to pave the road, McKeog said United Sands and Gravel Road is committed to maintaining the quality of other sand and gravel county roads. McKeog said the company spent “enough money” to put recycled asphalt in the corners of CR 2037 and 2038 where there were more dust complaints, but the material broke.
Lane suggested that watering the entire length of the road would help. McQuey said the company would expand water supply and lay more gravel.
Also on Tuesday, the commissioners received an August Indigenous Healthcare report from Director Mark de May. DeMay handled a total of 314 calls and 22 appointments during August. Two patients were admitted for care, four were pending and eight were denied services. Three patients renewed their services while four became ineligible. D’May said two of the patients were now receiving disability care, while one was an employee and the other was left on non-compliance. At the end of the month, there were 24 active patients.
The program paid غریب 26,550 for 89 poor claims and 12 prisoner claims for $ 2,116.49.
The program is seeing a reduction in healthcare costs, De Mae said. During August 31 billing cycle, the total cost was $ 8,311.68, compared to September 14 when the billing cycle was $ 5,481.78.
The commissioners also discussed an attempt to purchase Lake Fenon from the US Forest Service. Moore said the USFS originally proposed لا 130,000 to buy the lake, but the county did not have the money in this year’s budget. When the USFS returned next year, it proposed a cost of 4 430,000, Moore said.
“So they changed it, and it was like a ‘holy cow’, we can’t afford 30 430,000,” Moore said.
The county has contacted Sen’s offices. Ted Cruz, Sen. John Carnegie and Representative Pat Fallon, and are ready to help work on everything. Lane said whatever elected officials can do will help push the issue forward, otherwise “we are in a holding pattern.”
