[PUBLIC COMMENTS]

PUBLIC COMMENTS SECTION. THOSE IN THE AUDIENCE WHO SUBMITTED A PUBLIC PARTICIPATION WITNESS FORM WILL NOW HAVE MINUTES TO SPEAK. UNFORTUNATELY NO ACTION MAY BE TAKEN BY THE COURT DURING PUBLIC COMMENTS AS WE'RE EXPECTED NOT TO RESPOND.

ANY QUESTIONS WILL BE TAKEN AS RHETORICAL. ALL COMMENTS ARE OPINIONS OF THE SPEAKER AND NOT MEANT TO BE NECESSARILY CONSTRUED AS TRUTH. PLEASE KEEP YOUR COMMENTS AND LANGUAGE CIVIL AND RESPECTFUL OR YOU WILL FORFEIT THE REMAINDER OF YOUR TIME.

IN THE SPIRIT OF RESPECT PLEASE SILENCE YOUR CELL PHONES. FIRST UP TO SPEAK, WE HAVE MARIA MORRISEY. IS THAT A WRITTEN? OH, OK.

THANK YOU, MA'AM. >> THIS WRITTEN COMMENT WAS SENT BY MARIA MORRISY WHO IS A RESIDENT OF HAYS COUNTY. SHE WRITES ON TUESDAY FEBRUARY 23RD I WENT TO THE HAYS COUNTY PRECINCT FOUR OFFICE BUILDING HOPING TO FIND BOTTLED WATER. I STILL HAVE NO RUNNING WATER.

THERE WAS NO DISTRIBUTION GOING ON OUTSIDE SO IED AND WENT INTO THE BUILDING.

BOTH TAX OFFICE EMPLOYEES WERE BUSY SO I LOOKED AROUND FOR A COUNTY EMPLOYEE WHO MIGHT BE ABLE TO TELL ME IF THEY WERE STILL GIVING OUT BOTTLED WATER. A WOMAN WHO JUST WALKED OUT OF THE CONSTABLE'S OFFICE INTO THE LOBBY ASKED IF SHE COULD HELP ME AND I ASKED ABOUT BOTTLED WATER.

SHE TOLD ME THAT THAT WAS ONLY LAST WEEKEND AND THERE WASN'T ANYMORE.

I WALKED TO THE DOOR BUT DECIDED I WAS REALLY UNCOMFORTABLE WITH THE FACT THAT SHE WAS A COUNTY EMPLOYEE AT WORK IN A PUBLIC BUILDING AND WANDERING THROUGH THE LOBBY WITHOUT A MASK ON SO I ASKED HER WHY SHE WASN'T WEARING ONE. SHE REPLIED, I CHOOSE NOT TO.

I ASKED, YOU'RE NOT CONCERNED YOU MIGHT INFECT SOMEONE WITH A DEADLY DISEASE DURING A PANDEMIC? SHE SAID AGAIN, I CHOOSE NOT TO WEAR A MASK AND I DON'T HAVE TO AND TURNED AND WALKED OUT. AS A TAXPAYING, LAW-ABIDING CITIZEN OF HAYS COUNTY AND DRIPPING SPRINGS IT WAS ABSOLUTELY INFURIATING TO HAVE A PUBLIC EMPLOYEE DECIDE IT WAS OK FOR HER TO RISK MY HEALTHED THE HEALTH OF EVERY CITIZEN WHO WALKS IN THAT BUILDING AND REFUSE TO DISCUSS MY CONCERNS. AFTER I MET AND HAD A CONVERSATION WITH CONSTABLE RON HOOD, I UNDERSTOOD THE SOURCE OF HER ARROGANCE. AS I WALKED OUTSIDE TO MY VEHICLE I SAW A LAW ENFORCEMENT OFFICER ALSO ON MASK WALKING TOWARD ME.

I DID NOT AT THIS POINT KNOW WHO HE WAS OTHER THAN A LAW ENFORCEMENT OFFICER I FELT HE WOULD AND COULD DO SOMETHING ABOUT THE SWRATION I FOUND MYSELF.

I SAID SIR THERE'S A COUNTY EMPLOYEE WITHOUT A MASK ON. HE REPLIED MY PEOPLE DENT HAVE TO WEAR MASKS. ME, EXCUSE ME. JUDGE BECERRA ISSUED A MASK ORDER AND IT SAYS ALL PUBLIC EMPLOYEES ARE REQUIRED TO WEAR MASKS IN PUBLIC BUILDINGS.

[00:05:05]

HOOD, I DON'T ANSWER TO THE JUDGE. NOT KNOWING WHO HE WAS I SAID AND SNUR CONSTABLE RON HOOD, HE SAID AND POINTED TO HIS NAME PLATE.

ME, WHO DO YOU ANSWER TO? ED, I DON'T ANSWER TO ANYBODY. I'M AN ELECTED OFFICIAL WE, WELL -- ME, WELL CONSTABLE HOOD I'LL BE SURE TO LET JUDGE BECERRA KNOW WHAT YOUR POSITION IS ON MASKS. GO AHEAD. YOU'LL BE ONE OF THREE PEOPLE WHO COMPLAINED TO THE JUDGE ABOUT ME. ME, YOU DON'T CARE YOU AND YOUR EMPLOYEES COULD BE INFECTING PEOPLE. HOOD, I BELIEVE UNTIL THE MATH AND SCIENCE WHICH IS WHY I DON'T WEAR A MASK. ME, YOU CLEARLY DON'T BELIEVE IN THE SCIENCE IF YOU RESFUZ TO WEAR A MASK. HOOD AGAIN, I BELIEVE IN THE MATH AND SCIENCE. HE TURNED AND WALKED INTO THE BUILDING WITHOUT PUTTING ON A MASK. THIS MORNING I SPENT HOURS ON THE PHONE CALLING VARIOUS HAYS COUNTY OFFICERS TRYING TO DETERMINE TO WHOM I COULD MAKE A COMPLAINT ABOUT CONSTABLE HOOD'S OPEN AND WILLFUL DEFIANCE OF JUDGE BECERRA'S MASK ORDER. I'M ESPECIALLY CONCERNED THAT HIS PEOPLE WHO WORK IN A PUBLIC BUILDING AND WANDER AROUND THE LOBBY WITHOUT A MASS ROCK ENDANGERING NOT JUST ORDINARY THE -- MASK -- FEDERAL AND COUNTY EMPLOYEES WHO SHARE THE BUILDING. I WAS FINALLY DIRECTED TO CALL MY PRECINCT COUNTY FOUR COMMISSIONER WALT SMITH. COMMISSIONER SMITH EXPLAINED CONSTABLE HOOD IS CORRECT.

CONSTABLES ARE ELECTED OFFICIALS WHO ANSWER TO NO ONE BUT THE VOTERS.

REGARDING THE JUDGE'S MASK ORDER COMMISSIONER SMITH EXPLAINED THAT SINCE GOVERNOR ABBOTT REFUSED TO ALLOW ENFORCEMENT OF ANY LOCAL MASK ORDER THAT EFFECTIVELY INVALIDATED JUDGE BECERRA'S MASK ORDER. THE BOTTOM LINE THAT I UNDERSTOOD AFTER SPEAKING WITH COMMISSIONER SMITH WAS THAT NO LOCAL MASK ORDER CAN REQUIRE INDIVIDUALS TO WEAR A MASK.

THEY CAN ONLY REQUIRE RETAIL ESTABLISHMENTS TO INSIST THAT THEIR CUSTOMERS WEAR A MASK JUST LIKE NO SHIRT NO, SHOES, NO SERVICE. I ASKED COMMISSIONER SMITH WHAT ABOUT COUNTY I.E. PUBLIC BUILDINGS AND HE SAID IT WAS UP TO EACH INDIVIDUAL DEPARTMENT HEAD TO DECIDE WHETHER OR NOT TO REQUIRE THEIR EMPLOYEES TO WEAR A MASK AND THAT SINCE CONSTABLE HOOD DOES NOT WEAR A MASK REQUIRED HIS EMPLOYEES TO WEAR A MASS TK WAS NOTHING HE OR ANYONE OTHER THAN THE GOVERNOR COULD DO ABOUT -- MASK. HERE'S WHAT I READ ON THE HAYS COUNTY WEBSITE ABOUT THE ROLE OF CONSTABLES. CONSTABLES HAVE THE SAME POWER AS STANDARD POLICE OFFICERS BUT WITH THE ADD RESPONSIBILITY OF CIVIL LAW ENFORCEMENT AND ALONG WITH THEIR CUSTOMARY DUTIES, CONSTABLES ARE DEDICATED TO PUBLIC SERVICE.

YOU ARE THE GOVERNING BODY OF THE COUNTY SO I ASK YOU, IS JUDGE BECERRA'S MASK ORDER NOT A CIVIL LAW THAT SHOULD BE ENFORCED BY CONSTABLE WHO STATED DUTY IS CIVIL LAW ENFORCEMENT? CAN A CONSTABLE TRULY BE, QUOTE, DEDICATED TO PUBLIC SERVICE, END QUOTE, IF THEY AND THEIR EMPLOYEES WILLFULLY ENDANGER THE LIVES AND HEALTH OF HAYS COUNTY CITIZENS ON A DAILY BASIS? HOW CAN A LAW ENFORCEMENT OFFICER NOT HAVE OVERSIGHT OR ACCOUNTABILITY OR THE MANNER IN WHICH HE DOES OR DOES NOT PERFORMS DUTIES. HALF A MILLION AMERICANS HAVE DIED FROM COVID IN A SINGLE YEAR AND YET A PUBLIC SERVANT IN HAYS COUNTY GETS TO DECIDE THAT IT'S OK FOR HIM AND HIS EMPLOYEES TO RISK THE LIVES OF MORE AMERICANS BY RESFUZING TO WEAR A MASK DURING A DEAD -- REFUSING TO WEAR A MASK DURING A DEADLY PANDEMIC.

HOW IS THIS POSSIBLE? HOW IS THIS ACCEPTABLE? THANK YOU.

>> DR. CARDENAS, CAN YOU PLEASE REPEAT THE NAME OF THE LETTER. >> IT'S MARIA MORRISEY.

>> MARIA MORRISEY. >> M-O-R-H-I-S-E-Y. >> THANK YOU.

COMMISSIONER INGALSBE WANTED TO WRITE IT DOWN. NEXT UP IN OUR PUBLIC COMMENTS

WE HAVE MR. HARVEY JENKINS. >> GOOD MORNING, COMMISSIONERS COME TO YOU TODAY MUCH AS, YOU KNOW, MUCH LIKE I DO EVERY TIME I COME UP HERE AND ASK Y'ALL TO STOP SPENDING MONEY.

I'M GOING TO DO SOMETHING TODAY THAT IS MUCH LIKE DAN LYON. I'M GOING TO THROW OUTNUMBERS TO YOU. HERE IN THE GREAT STATE OF TEXAS WE HAVE 254 COUNTIES.

OF THOSE 254 COUNTIES, THERE'S ONLY ONE WHO IS SO HEAVILY IN DEBT THAT IT'S TEETERING ON THE BRINK OF BANKRUPTCY. THAT IS OUR COUNTY. 15 YEARS AGO, 14, 15 YEARS AGO, WE HAD $25 MILLION IN DEBT. NOW WITH MOST PEOPLE IN THIS COURTROOM, $25 MILLION IS A LOT OF MONEY, BUT TO AN ENTERPRISING URBAN GOVERNING BODY SUCH AS YOURSELVES, Y'ALL GOT TO PAY THAT DEBT OFF. HOWEVER, BECAUSE OF THE BLATANT MISAPPROPRIATIONS IN HAYS COUNTY

[00:10:02]

WE ARE TEETERING ON THE BRINK OF BANKRUPTCY. AND I URGE THE COUNTY COMMISSIONERS TO GO TO TAKE A FEW DAYS AND GO INTO THEIR RESPECTIVE PRECINCTS AND TALK TO THEIR CONSTITUENTS AND FIND OUT WHAT THE CONCERNS ARE BECAUSE IF Y'ALL CONTINUE DOWN THE PATH YOU'RE GOING, WE'RE LITERALLY GOING TO BE THE NEXT DETROIT, MICHIGAN.

WE HAVE SEEN THEM GET BAILED OUT BECAUSE OF PROFLIGATE SPENDING. THIS IS SERIOUS.

YOU KNOW, I VOTED FOR COUNTY COMMISSIONER LEON SHELDON BECAUSE I BELIEVE IN THAT MAN.

IF -- LON SHELDON. IF HE CONTINUES TO SHOW ME HE'S AS SKILFULL LOADER THAT HE IS I WILL VERY HAPPILY VOTE FOR HIM. SAME THING FOR DEBBIE GONZALEZ INGALSBE AND YOU TOO JUDGE BECERRA, I VOTED FOR YOU BECAUSE YOU HAVE THE RIGHT MESSAGE. PLEASE CONTINUE TO HAVE THE RIGHT MESSAGE. YOU WANT THIS TO BE THE NEW -- WITH THE SENTER? SHOW US BECAUSE FROM WHERE WE THE COMMON CITIZENS STAND ON THIS SIDE OF THAT BIAS AND THIS LECTURN ALL WE SEE IS OBFUSCATIONS. WE SEE Y'ALL HIDING THE FACT THAT Y'ALL ARE VOTING ON THINGS, AND THEN YOU COME HERE ON TUESDAY MORNING TO RUBBER STAMP IT AND MAKE IT ALL GOOD. IT'S NOT. YOU KNOW, I HAVE TO LEAVE JUST AFTER PUBLIC COMMENTS BECAUSE I HAVE TO TAKE MY DAD TO WORK. ON AGENDA ITEM 29 MIKE JONES WANTS A 4 BY 44 TRUCK FOR WHAT. WHAT DOES HE WANT THAT TRUCK FOR? WHY ARE WE GOING TO PAY TENS OF THOUSANDS OF DOLLARS FOR THAT TRUCK WHEN Y'ALL CAN GO RIGHT UP THE ROAD TO THE WAX ARMY TRUCK DEPOT AND GET ONE FOR MAYBE A TENTH OF THAT COST OR HALF THAT COST? AND IT WILL DO EVERYTHING HE WANTS AND MORE BECAUSE IT'S A 6-WHEEL DRIVE INSTEAD OF BEING A 4 BY 4. Y'ALL HAVE A WONDERFUL DAY AND

GOD BLESS. >> THANK YOU SIR. NEXT UP WE HAVE MR. DAN LYON.

>> THANK YOU, JUDGE BECERRA AND GOOD MORNING, COMMISSIONERS. I JUST WANT TO GIVE THE COURT AN UPDATE ON THE RESPONSE OF THE HAYS COUNTY CENTRAL APPRAISAL DISTRICT TO THE CHARGE THAT THEY ARE VIOLATING SECTION 41.43-B MUCH THE TEXAS PROPERTY TAX CODE SO FAR, THE CADS HAVE NOT RESPONDED. IN THE IMMORTAL WORDS OF JUDGE SMELLS FROM THE MOVIE "CADDYSHACK" WELL WE'RE WAITING. ALL RIGHT. SWITCHING TO ANOTHER SUBJECT I WAS WATCHING KXAN NEWS LAST WEEK AND SHERIFF CUTLER CAME ON. HE WAS TALKING ABOUT THE EMERGENCY DISPATCHERS, HOW THE EMERGENCY DISPATCHERS HAVE BEEN MOVED TO A CONFERENCE ROOM ON ACCOUNT OF BROKEN PIPES AT THE GOVERNMENT CENTER. WHEN THE REPORTER ASKED HOW THIS COULD HAPPEN IN A BUILDING AS NEW AND AS EXPENSIVE AS THE GOVERNMENT CENTER, SHERIFF CUTLER SAID, IT CAN HAPPEN ANYWHERE AT ANY TIME. HE SAID THAT THEY ARE -- THERE WERE LATCHES IN THE CEILING WHICH EITHER FAILED OR WERE IMPROPERLY LATCHED AFTER WORK WAS DONE ON THE HVAC SYSTEM AND THERE WAS ALSO A POSSIBLE GENERATOR FAIL, IN THAT IT WAS SOMETHING THAT JUST HAPPENED. LADIES AND GENTLEMEN, IT JUST HAPPENED IS NOT AN ACCEPTABLE REASON. SOME PERSON OR PERSONS FAILED TO DO THE JOB AND THE PEOPLE OF HAYS COUNTY GOT STWUCT BILL FOR THOUSANDS OF DOLLARS. WE KNOW, AS MR. AMAYA HAS TOLD US, THAT MR. KENNEDY AND MR. BOCHERDING DID A POOR JOB IN THE DESIGN OF THE BUILDING AND THERE WAS NO HEAT IN THE CEILING. IT IS TYPICAL THAT NO ONE HAS EVER HELD ACCOUNTABLE FOR THEIR FAILURES AT THE COUNTY UNLESS THEY FALL OUT OF FAVOR WITH THE CLIQUE THAT RUNS THIS MESS, WHICH WE EUPHEMISTICALLY REFER TO AS THE COUNTY.

THE PEOPLE OF THIS COUNTY ARE OWED THOUSANDS OF DOLLARS FOR PIPE REPAIRS AND YOU, THE COMMISSIONERS COURT, ARE RESPONSIBLE FOR COLLECTING THIS MONEY FROM THE GUILTY PARTY.

LASTLY, I READ IN THE COSE DAILY RECORD THAT THE EMERGENCY CASH ASSISTANCE PROGRAM, THE E-CAP HAD GIVEN A GRANT TO THE THEATER PRODUCTION COMPANY CALLED THE WOMEN BERLE PLAYERS.

I -- WIMBERLEY PLAYERS. THEY MIGHT NEED THE MONEY, BUT THE PROBLEM IS THEY ARE NOT AN

[00:15:02]

ESSENTIAL BUSINESS IN HAYS COUNTY. THE GREATER SAN MARCOS PARTNERSHIP DISPERSING COUNTY FUNDS WITH APPARENTLY NO GUIDELINES OR SUPERVISION.

WITH THE COUNTY THREE-QUARTERS OF A BILLION IN DEBT, WE CANNOT AFFORD TO BE GIVING OUT MONEY LIKE IT GROWS ON TREES. IN MY OPINION, THIS IS AN ABUSE OF COUNTY FUNDS.

IF THE COMMISSIONERS COURT REALLY WANTS TO HELP THE PEOPLE, THEY CAN SUBSTANTIALLY LOWER THE EFFECTIVE TAX RATE. LET'S END THESE EXPENSIVE BOGUS PROGRAMS.

THANK YOU VERY MUCH. >> AMARIS: THANK YOUS LYON. >> THANK YOU, MR. LYON.

NEXT UP WE HAVE MR. RODRIGO AMAYA. >> GOOD MORNING, COMMISSIONERS.

VIEWERS OF CYBERSPACE. I'D LIKE TO START OFF TODAY IN THIS COURTROOM DECORUM NUMBER D.

THE COURT DESERVES THE RIGHT TO SET REASONABLE TIME LIMITS ON SPEAKERS AT THEIR DISCRETION.

WE NEED MORE TIME, COMMISSIONERS. IT'S TOO MUCH STUFF TO DISCUSS.

THREE MINUTES IS NOT ENOUGH. JUST SOMETHING TO THINK ABOUT AND WE WOULD APPRECIATE IF Y'ALL GIVE IT CONSIDERATION. THE OTHER THING TO TALK ABOUT HONORABLE JOB WILLIE THOMPSON THEY ARE KEEPING UP WITH WHAT'S GOING ON OVER THERE. SHE NEEDS SOME HELP.

SHE'S UNDER A LOT OF PRESSURE FROM OPPOSING JUDGES WHO HAVE NO BUSINESS AND ETHICAL STANDARDS TO BE DOING THAT. SHE NEEDS HELP COMMISSIONERS. HE'S WORKING UNDER VERY HOSTILE WORK CONDITIONS AND AS A TAXPAYER AND AS A PROUDER OF HER I REALLY ENCOURAGE Y'ALL GET INVOLVED AND COME HELP HER BECAUSE SHE NEEDS THE HELP. THERE'S A COUPLE OF ARTICLES OUT THERE CIRCULATING. THE OTHER THING IS THIS VIDEO STUFF ABOUT MAKING ME AND OTHER SPEAKERS LOOK LIKE MAX HEADROOM FROM THE 1980S ABOUT ALL THE TECHNICAL DIFFICULTIES, THE MAN OVER THERE, MR. MCGILLIS, WHATEVER HIS NAME IS, I SEEN A LOT OF AGENDA ITEMS COMING UP WHERE HE'S MAKING ALL KINDS OF TECHNOLOGY CONTRACTS WITH ALL KINDS OF PEOPLE AND YOU GET THAT KIND OF SERVICE, IT'S UNACCEPTABLE. THAT'S WITH THAT LADY EARLIER TALKED ABOUT AND WHAT IS WHAT MR. LYONS AND JENKINS -- Y'ALL PAYING ALL THIS MONEY.

HE LOOKS VERY HEALTHY AND HAPPY. HE DON'T LOOK WORRIED ABOUT HIS JOB BUT AGAIN THE STANDARD Y'ALL SET LIKE FOR MR. KENNEDY OVER HERE 1.2 MILLION, LOST PINES WHERE WE LOST THAT MONEY.

WHERE ARE THE CONSEQUENCES. I GUARANTEE IF IT WAS YOUR MONEY FROM YOUR POCKET YOU WOULDN'T BE SO FORGIVING. WHAT IS HE STILL DOING AS OUR COUNTY ATTORNEY? THE OTHER IS THE SHERIFF. TALK ABOUT THE WATER PIPES. Y'ALL KNOW THAT THE OTHER DAYS WITH A LITTLE RIOT. NEVER GOT -- THEY FORGOT TO PUT BY PHONES.

TWO DIFFERENT LOCATIONS THERE WAS A RIOT. 20 SOME PHONES WERE NOT ORDERED SO THEY COULDN'T CONTACT EACH OTHER FOR HELP. WHAT KIND OF NEGLIGENCE -- THAT'S TOXIC LEADERSHIP RIGHT THERE FOLKS. WHAT Y'ALL GOING TO TO ABOUT IT? HE GETS TO STAND UP HERE. I REMEMBER FORM HE COUNTY JUDGE TALK ABOUT SHERIFF YOU'RE -- IT'S ALREADY APPROVED. YAUM HAVE BEEN TOO, TOO WILLING AND FORGIVING FOR THAT -- Y'ALL -- THAT KIND OF FAILURE. IF Y'ALL KEEP ENDANGERING THE PUBLIC.

LOOK AT SHAMEFUL RON HOOD COMING UP HERE, I DON'T HAVE TO ANSWER IT TO ANYONE.

THAT GUY DON'T EVEN KNOW HOW TO PUT ON HIS RACIAL PROFILING AND HE ENFORCED THE T CODE.

THAT'S EMBARRASSING. YO COME UP HERE AND SAY WE HAVE TO DO BETTER WHEN VILLALOBOS TALKS ABOUT HIS LITTLE COVID OPERATIONS YOU'RE DAMN RIGHT WE GOT TO DO BETTER.

WHAT ARE YOU DOING ABOUT IT? THESE ARE PEOPLE IN YOUR PRECINCT GETTING AWAY AND RESPONDING TO THE PUBLIC IN UNPROFESSIONAL MANNERS, COMING FROM A SEASON LAW ENFORCEMENT LIKE RON HOOD BOARD OF DIRECTORS. I ONLY ANSWER TO -- I DON'T ANSWER TO ANYONE IS WHAT WAS SAID, YOU KNOW. SO MANY ISSUES.

THIS IS ALL A RESULT OF NEGLIGENCE ON Y'ALL'S PART. >> THANK YOU, MR. AMAYA.

THAT CONCLUDES OUR PUBLIC COMMENTS. BEFORE WE OPEN AGENDA ITEM NUMBER ONE I'D LIKE TO GIVE COMMISSIONER SMITH AN OPPORTUNITY TO SPEAK.

HE ASKED FOR A MOMENT AND THERE IT IS. >> THANKS.

I APPRECIATE IT, JUDGE. JUST AS A POINT OF PERSONAL PRIVILEGE I APPRECIATE IT.

TODAY IS MARCH 2ND HAS ALWAYS BEEN SINCE 2005 IT'S BEEN AN IMPORTANT DAY FOR ME.

IT'S DAY THE MY DAD PASSED AWAY, SO IT WAS A FOR A LONG TIME, BUT NINE YEARS AGO IT BECAME A GREAT DAY BECAUSE IT WAS DAY THE MY SECOND DAUGHTER WAS BORN. AND SO I JUST WANTED TO WISH MY DAUGHTER A HAPPY BIRTHDAY TODAY AND LET HER KNOW HOW MUCH I CARE ABOUT HER.

>> WONDERFUL. THANK YOU. WILL YOU PLEASE OPEN AGENDA ITEM

[1. Update from the County Judge and staff regarding the Local Disaster Declaration and COVID-19. Possible discussion and action may follow. (Part 1 of 2)]

NUMBER ONE. >> NUMBER ONE UPDATE FROM THE COUNTY JUDGE AND STAFF REGARDING THE LOCAL DISASTER DECLARATION AND COVID-19. POSSIBLE DISCUSSION AND ACTION

MAY FOLLOW. >> MR. MIKE JONES, WOULD YOU LIKE TO TAKE THE PODIUM AND GIVE

[00:20:01]

US A BROAD OVERVIEW OF THINGS COVID IN HAYS COUNTY? >> GOOD MORNING, CLERK, COMMISSIONERS, JUDGE. MIKE JONES DIRECTOR OF EMERGENCY SERVICES.

THE COUNTY WITH THE CLINIC FOR SECOND DOSE CLINIC WIMBERLEY FIRST BAPTIST AND WE COMPLETED RIGHT AT 720. 770 DOSES. WE'RE LOOKING TO COMPLETE ANOTHER 829 A DAY, IS THE FORECAST BASED AN FIRST DOSE ALLOCATIONS IN WIMBERLEY AFTER WE RESCALE. AND THEN WE'LL BE CIRCLING BACK AROUND TO THE PERFORMING ARTS CENTRE IN KYLE SECOND DOSE NOT NEXT WEEK BUT THE FOLLOWING WEEK AND THAT WILL ALSO DRIPPING SPRINGS WILL BE THE SAME WAY. SO NEXT WEEK WE HAVE WHAT WE MIGHT CALL A BYE BECAUSE OF WINTER STORMS. BEGIN SOME FORMULATIONS, TAMMY AND I, IN ORDER TO FILL THAT WITH SOME IMPACTFUL FIRST DOSING GOING ON OUT THERE. YOU'LL HEAR MORE ABOUT THIS LATER ON THIS WEEK. WE'LL HAVE MORE ON DISCUSSION. ANY QUESTIONS SIR.

>> ANY QUESTIONS ON THAT COVID. >> I JUST WANT TO SAY THANK YOU TO MIKED HIS TEAM.

I WAS ABLE TO GO TO A COUPLE OF DAYS OF DISTRIBUTIONS LAST WEEK AND I REALLY APPRECIATE AS SOON AS WE WERE BACK UP AND RUNNING AFTER THE STORM, Y'ALL WERE IN THERE THE VERY NEXT DAY PUTTING IN THE LONG HOURS THAT WERE NEEDED. UNDER SOME PRETTY DIFFICULT CIRCUMSTANCES, AND I SINCERELY APPRECIATE IT AND OTHER FOLKS IN MY PRECINCT FOUR REALLY DID APPRECIATE THE WORK Y'ALL DID AT RANCH PARK. HAVING TO CHANGE THE LOCATION BECAUSE OF BURST PIPES AND HIGH SCHOOL AND THOSE KINDS OF THINGS AND WORKING ON YOUR FEET, WE

REALLY DO APPRECIATE EVERYTHING Y'ALL DO. >> THANK YOU.

APPRECIATE THAT, SIR. >> MIKE, DO YOU KNOW HOW MANY PEOPLE WE HAVE ON THE REGISTRATION LIST, HOW MANY VACCINES WE HAVE BEEN ABLE TO DELIVER AT THIS POINT?

>> SO IN HAYS COUNTY ON THE STATE WEBSITE IT SHOWS WE HAVE 25,334 VACCINATED.

WE HAVE OVER 30,000 REGISTERED IN 1-BED OVER 5,000 REGISTERED ON 1-A.

THAT BE CONSIDERED IN HAYS WE'VE ACTUALLY CONDUCTED FROM THE VACCINATION CLINICS BETWEEN US AND LIVE OAK THAT NUMBER IS RIGHT AT 15,000, 145. THE REASON THE DISPARAGE FOR THE TWO NUMBERS IS THAT FOLKS IN HAYS COUNTY AREN'T GETTING THEIR VACCINES IN HAYS.

THEY HAD THE OPPORTUNITY TO GO TO OTHER LOCATIONS THROUGHOUT THE STATE AND THEY ARE MAKING IT HAPPEN. SO WHEN THEY ASK WHAT COUNTY YOU RESIDE FROM THAT'S HOW IT'S

SHOWING UP THERE. >> THANK YOU. >> GOOD MORNING.

>> THAT ALSO INCLUDES THE PROVIDERS THAT RECEIVE THEIR VACCINES BEFORE WE DID.

AND I'M SORRY, I DIDN'T TALK TO YOU ABOUT THIS BEFORE. IT ALSO INCLUDES COMMUNICARE'S

VACCINES THEY ARE ADMINISTERING MOO COMMISSIONER? >> THANK YOU.

>> I WILL ADD THAT WE WERE ON A PHONE CALL, TAM, MIKE AND EVERYONE FROM ALL EMERGENCY RESPONSE IN HAZE COUNTY THAT IS THE WHEEL TURNERS ON -- HAYS COUNTY THAT ARE THE WHEEL TURNERS ON THAT FRONT FOR VACCINATIONS. WE HAD A CONVERSATION WITH SEE THEON. THAT WAS -- SEATON. THAT WAS THE INITIAL GROUND, I NEGOTIATION GROUND GAME, COULD BE THE WORD, OF WHAT HAS UNFOLDED, TEST PILOT PROGRAM FOR THE FOUR COUNT HE EFFORTS FOR VACCINATIONS IN THE AMERICAS. WE DID THAT ON SATURDAY, AND TRAVIS COUNTY IS THANK JUDGE BROWN FOR THIS AND SEATON. THEY ARE LEADING THIS EFFORT AND WE ARE HAPPY SUPPORTERS BECAUSE WE KNOW THAT OUR COMMUNITIES ARE ALL, AS COMMISSIONER JONES JUST SAID BEFORE COURT IN HAVE MANY SPACES WE ARE A BEDROOM COMMUNITY TO TRAVIS COUNTY, SO A LOT OF OUR RESIDENTS GO TO TRAVIS THEY SO IT MAKES SENSE WE WORK ON A REGIONAL RESPONSE.

THE GOAL IS TO DRAW DOWN MORE VACCINES FOR OUR RESIDENTS ULTIMATELY.

AND SO WE HAVE PRESIDENT BIDEN LAST WEEK AT HARRIS COUNTY'S MASS VACCINATION SUPER CENTER.

WHAT WE'RE DOING TO SUMMARIZE IS THAT. WE ARE DOING OUR SAMPLING FOR THIS MESS, FOR COUNTY FOOTPRINT SO THAT WE COULD GRAB THE SUPPORT OF THE FEDERAL GOVERNMENT AND THEY CAN BRING US TO THROUGH THE CERTAINLY THE AMERICAS EFFORT.

10,000 VACCINES A DAY. THAT'S THE GOAL. THAT'S THE HOPE.

NOT TO DISTRACT OR TAKE AWAY FROM ALL THE PRIVATE PROVIDERS THAT ARE CATCHING THE STATE VACCINES OR WHAT WE ARE RECEIVING IN THE COUNTY AS TAMMY HAS POINTED OUT.

ALL THE THINGS THAT WE ARE DOING AND RECEIVING AS A COUNTY, THIS IS ABOVE AND BEYOND.

[00:25:03]

SO THAT IS WHY IT'S ADDITIONALLY BEN BECAUSE IT PROVIDES VACCINES FOR THOSE THAT WANT IT IN A HIGHER QUANTITY BECAUSE, OF COURSE, WE'RE FIGHTING THE VARIANT STRAINS MAKING THEIR WAY. HARRIS COUNTY HAD BEEN REPORTED AS THE ONE REPORTING OF ALL THE VARIANTS IN HARRIS COUNTY. YOU GUYS KNOW IT'S TWO HOURS AWAY AND IT'S TOO CLOSE.

SO OUR PUSH FOR CARE ON NOT LETTING DOWN ON THE JOB. SPRING BREAK IS AROUND THE CORNER IS, THAT VARIANTS ARE ON THEIR WAY. VACCINES ARE DIALING UP.

JOHNSON & JOHNSON STARTED SHOVING OFF DAY THE BEFORE YESTERDAY.

ALL THESE THINGS ARE COMING OUR WAY AND BENEFITTING US BUT THE VARIANT AND THE MASK FATIGUE WE HEARD ABOUT IN ONE OF OUR PUBLIC OMMENTS AND EVERYTHING ELSE IS JUST PART OF IT AND WE GOT TO KEEP PUSHING AND THAT'S THE BEST WAY TO DESCRIBE IT. KEEP PUSHING AND DO OUR VERY BEST TO FOLLOW THE CDC GUIDELINES. FOLLOW THE SCIENCE DID.

I LEAVE ANYTHING OUT MIKE? >> NO, SIR. >> I WAS JUST GOING TO X-I KNOW THAT I'VE HEARD REPORTS SAYING THAT THEY BELIEVE VACCINES, I GUESS THE TWO RIGHT NOW AND THEN THE JOHNSON & JOHNSON REFCTIVE ON THE DIFFERENT VARIANTS THAT ARE EFFECTIVE IN COMING IN.

WHAT EVERYONE ELSE IS HEARING THAT THAT IS CORRECT? >> YES, MA'AM.

THE ONLY UNIQUE THING I'VE HEARD FOR THE VARIANTS IS THAT IT'S MORE CONTAGIOUS.

EASIER TO CATCH IT. BUT OUR VACCINES STILL HAVE A TREMENDOUS EFFICACY AGAINST

THESE VARIANTS AS WELL. >> AND JUST TO HIGHLIGHT AND EYE TAL SIZE AND UNDERLINE WHAT MR. JONES JUST SAID, BEING MORE CONTAGIOUS, IT'S ALL A TRICKLE. BECAUSE IT'S MORE CONTAGIOUS, MORE PEOPLE WILL HAVE THE SYMPTOMS AND MORE PEOPLE HAVING THE SYMPTOMS WE'LL END UP WITH MORE PEOPLE IN THE HOSPITALS AND MORE PEOPLE IN THE HOSPITALS WILL END UP WITH HIGHER FATALITIES. SO IN SUM, I CAN SAY THAT IT'S MORE DEADLY.

-- IN SUMMARY, I CAN SAY THAT IT'S MORE DEADLY, WHICH IS VERY SOBERING.

WE'RE ON THE RIGHT PATH. EVERYONE CONTINUE TO DO THE THINGS WE'RE DOING.

THAT'S WHY I FEEL IN PART ONE OF THE GOOD THINGS IN WITH THIS FREEZE IT HELPED PEOPLE STAY PUT AND LET THIS VIRUS ALSO DIAL DOWN JUST A BIT MORE, AND IT'S PALPABLE.

THE NERVOUSNESS IS PALPABLE AND WE'RE TRULY. THOSE THAT BREATHE THIS SEVEN DAYS A WEEK TRULY FEEL THE NERVOUSNESS ABOUT WHAT'S ON THE HORIZON AND WHAT WE'RE DOING TO ADDRESS IT. BUT THIS IS A GLOBAL NATIONAL STATE AND LOCAL EFFORT.

WE'RE ALL PUSHING THE BEST WE CAN. ALL RIGHT.

THANK YOU, COMMISSIONERS. THANK YOU, MR. JONES. OH, I KNOW THAT I'VE BEEN ASKED ABOUT RENTAL ASSISTANCE WHEN IT COMES TO THE OF OUR RESPONSE AND DECLARATION.

I KNOW THE AUDITOR'S OFFICE WAS WORKING ON THAT. I'D LIKE TO SEE IF YOU CAN TELL

ME WHERE WE ARE ON THAT. >> WE'VE ACTUALLY BEEN MAKING -- MIKE JONES AND HE'S BEEN WORKING WITH SOME AGENCIES TO WORK ON GUIDELINES AND I BELIEVE THAT THEY WERE GOING TO WORK ON THE GUIDELINES YESTERDAY. MIKE JONES REALLY HAS MORE INFORMATION.

>> WE'RE WORKING WITH THE TEAM AND ALSO WITH THE BARNABUS JUST TO PUT TOGETHER SOME GUIDELINES.

MAKES FOR A BETTER DRAFT AND THEN WE'LL BRING THE DRAFT UP HERE FOR MARISOL TO TAKE A LOOK AT AND PRESENT TO THE COURT AS WELL. IDEALLY IT'S SIMILAR TO WHAT WE DID BEFORE WITH THAT INITIAL COVID LEAF MONEY WE HAD EARLIER. IT FALLS IN THE SAME LINE.

TAKING CARE OF THE RENTAL UTILITY SENTENCE THIS. GIVES US MORE BREATH AS YOU ALL KNOW. YOU TAKE UP TO 12 MONTHS OF ARREARAGE FOR SOME OF THE NEEKS ARE BEHIND IF RENTS. ALSO THREE MONTHS -- FOLKS THAT ARE BEHIND IN RENTS.

ALSO THREE MONTHS BEHIND THAT. SO THIS WEEK WITH BARNABUS AND THE RECOVERY TEAM, THEY ARE DRAFTING THAT, THOSE DOCTORS TOGETHER AND WE'LL HAVE SOME FOR NEXT WEEK FOR COURT.

>> HERE'S A SHORT TIMELINE ON THE EXPENDITURE OF THOSE FUNDS. ISN'T THERE THE END OF THE YEAR OR SOMETHING? I CAN'T REMEMBER. IT WAS VERY SHORT.

>> DECEMBER. DECEMBER. WE NEED TO HAVE A PLAN.

IN SEPTEMBER WE HAVE TO HAVE A PLAN TO SPEND T REMAINING MONEYS, WHATEVER WE HAVE LEFT IN

SEPTEMBER. >> I'M NOT TRYING TO BE CRITICAL BY BRINGING IT UP, BUT THIS WHERE WE LEFT OFF WITH THE AWED TOWARDS OFFICE A NOW WEEKS AGO, SAYING THAT WE WERE GOING TO GENERATE WHEN WE WERE GIVEN THE GREAT NEWS OF THAT FUNDING. THAT'S -- THAT'S WHERE IT WAS

[00:30:02]

LEFT IN MY HEAD, AND I UNDERSTAND THAT WE'RE ALL, OF COURSE, MIKE I TALK TO YOU SEVEN DAYS A WEEK. I KNOW WHAT WE'RE ALL DOING, BUT MY HOPE WAS TO PUSH US ALONG FURTHER FASTER. SO WHATEVER I WAS UNDER THE IMPRESSION THE AUDITOR WAS GOING TO WORK THROUGH THOSE GUIDELINES AND PRESENT THEM. THAT WAS THE LAST CONVERSATION WE HAD FROM THE AUDITORS OFFICE. IF IT'S SHIFTED I'M GLAD BECAUSE THAT'S WHAT THIS REASON FOR BRINGING IT UP WAS FOR. THAT COULD BE BROUGHT UP TO SPEED ON IT BECAUSE IT'S VERY NEAR AND DEAR TO GET THIS OUT. SO THEY HAVE A JOB TO DO ON THIS FRONT AND I WANT TO MAKE SURE

THEY KEEP UP WITH IT. >> RIGHT ON. WE HAVE A MEETING THIS AFTERNOON. IT'S GOING TO MOVE FAVT. I KNOW MARISOL SAYS THIS EVERY DAY. WE HAVE SOME PLAYERS IN PLACE IN ORDER TO FACILITATE THAT.

NOT ONLY FROM OUR SIDE BUT BEFORE IT GETS TO THE AUDITORS OFFICE.

SO I'M TRYING TO REMOVE THE BURDEN OF TIME AND EXPENSE THAT IS REQUIRED FOR THIS, SO WE'RE TRYING TO JUST BE SOMEWHAT SEAMLESS, AND ALL WE NEED TO DO IS GO DOWN AND MAKE SURE

EVERYTHING IS CHECKED. >> AND WE ARE 3-T AND BARN BUT IS ARE -- BARNABUS ARE AWESOME.

NO COMPLAINTS. I WANT TO BE USEFUL. THANK YOU, MR. JONES.

WILL YOU PLEASE OPEN AGENDA ITEM NUMBER -- I'LL TELL YOU WHAT. I DIDN'T GET TO DO THIS EARLIER.

[6. Authorize payment to Card Services in the amount of $1,707.40 in which no purchase order was issued as required per the County Purchasing Policy and amend the budget accordingly. ]

PLEASE OPEN AGENDA ITEM NUMBER 6. >> NUMBERING SIX AUTHORIZE PAYMENTS TO CARD SERVICES IN THE AMOUNT OF $1,707.40 IN WHICH NO PURCHASE ORDER WAS ISSUED AS REQUIRED PER THE COUNTY PURCHASING POLICY AND AMEND THE BUDGET ACCORDINGLY.

>> AND WE HAVE ONE PERSON SIGNED UP TO SPEAK. MR. RODRIGO AMAYA.

>> THANK YOU, JUDGE. COMMISSIONERS. HERE I AM AGAIN ON THIS AGENDA ITEM. NO PURCHASE ORDER WAS ISSUED AS REQUIRED PER COUNTY PURCHASING POLICY. I BROUGHT TO Y'ALL COUPLE OF WEEKS BACK ABOUT MISS CRUMLEY'S SUBMITTING AGENDA ITEMS THAT DIDN'T HAVE THE PICTURES OF THE TRASH CANS OUTSIDE, THE ONES TO BE PURCHASED AND THE OLD ONES. SO THAT'S A TYPO. IN ADDITION, ONE OF THOSE UNDER SUMMARIES IT HAD THE DATE AND IT SAID 2002. I DON'T KNOW IF SHE MEANT 2021 BUT AS A DIRECTOR, THAT'S UNACCEPTABLE. SO ON THOSE GROUNDS THAT Y'ALL SHOULD DEMAND THAT WHOEVER IS SUBMITSING THESE SUMMARIES DO A BETTER JOB OF MAKE THAT THESE TYPOS BECAUSE IT'S VERY INSULTING AND FRUSTRATING TO TAXPAYERS YOU THAT ALLOW THIS SUBSTANDARD SUMMARY BEING SUBMITTED. I WANT TO KNOW WHERE THE TAX DOLLARS ARE GOING. I NEED MORE MEAT ON THE BONE TO BE ABLE TO MAKE A BETTER DECISION. THAT'S WHAT Y'ALL ARE SUPPOSED TO DEMAND.

WHEN IT'S COMING FROM YOUR DIRECTORS AND DEPARTMENT HEADS AND THEN SOMETIMES I WALK BACK I WAS TRYING TO APPLY FOR A JOB WITH THE COUNTY Y'ALL PUT THIS STATEMENT ON THERE ON HR THAT

[00:35:05]

SAYS EMPLOYEES WILL WORK TO THE SATISFACTION OF THE ELECTED OFFICIALS.

I DON'T THINK IT'S THERE ANYMORE BUT THAT'S AN INSULTING STATEMENT.

ELECTED OFFICIALS DON'T HAVE ALL THE ANSWERS. I CAN TELL YOU THEY DON'T.

THEY GOT FAULTS, TOO. SO I'M GLAD IT'S GONE, BUT FOR ALL TO ALLOW MISS CRUMLEY TO SUBMIT THIS KIND OF STUFF. LOOK AT NUMBER FIVE. I'M LOOKING AT THEIR CONTRACTS.

REAL QUICK GUYS I WAS JUST LOOKING AT RIGHT NOW THE ONE THEY PUT HERE ON THIS PAPER FOR NUMBER FIVE THIS IS 9,515. IF YOU LOOK AT THE ACTUAL CONTRACT IT SAYS 9,516.

THAT'S $1. THAT'S $1. THOSE KIND OF TYPOS RUN

ACCEPTABLE. >> THANK YOU MR. AMAYA. >> CAN WE GET A MOTION.

>> MOTION. >> SO MOVED. >> SECOND.

>> YES, MA'AM. >> THIS ITEM HAS AMENDED BUDGET ACCORDINGLY AND WE HAD ASKED MISS CRUMLEY TO ASK THE COURT FOR ADDITIONAL FUNDING BECAUSE THESE MEALS ARE BEING PROVIDED TO VOLUNTEERS ON A WEEKLY BASIS. IF SHE COULD GIVE AN ESTIMATE SO THAT WE COULD DETERMINE WHERE THE FUNDING WOULD COME FROM AND AMEND THE BUDGET ACCORDINGLY FOR THE YOU'RE MEALS AS WELL.

-- FUTURE MEALS AS WELL. >> IF YOU DON'T MIND. IF I STAY SEATED.

>> PLEASE. PERFECT PLACE FOR THAT MICROPHONE.

>> TAMMY CRUMLEY DIRECTOR OF COUNTY WIDE OPERATIONS. OUR VACCINE CLINICS ARE OPERATED I WANT TO SAY, MAINLY FOR OTHER THAN OUR LIMITED STAFF SOLELY ON VOLUNTEERS, CERTAIN VOLUNTEERS AND THEN SOME VOLUNTEERS, DEPENDING ON THE LOCATION AT THE WIMBERLEY FIRST BAPTIST CHURCH.

IT IS THEIR CONGREGATION THAT'S VOLUNTEERED. WE FEED THOSE VOLUNTEERS.

THEY DON'T LEAVE. THEY STAY ON SITE.PTHEY ARE RUNE CLINICS FOR US, AS I SAID.

THOSE MEALS ARE RUNNING US. WE HAVE ON BANK 65 VOLUNTEERS THAT HELP US RUN THOSE CLINICS EVERY WEEK, TWO DAYS A WEEK. FIRSTS AS WE KNOW, SCHEDULED TWO DAYS AND THEY RETURN EVERY THREE WEEKS FOR THEIR SECOND DOSE. SO I'M ASKING THE COURT TO ALLOCATE FUNDS FOR THOSE MEALS.

THE AVERAGE IS RUNNING $600 BETWEEN $500-700 DEPENDING ON THE NUMBER OF VOLUNTEERS WE'RE HAVING. THEY ARE GIVINGS -- WE'RE THERE FROM 1 TO SOMETIMES 10:00 AT NIGHT SO WE FEED THEM LUNCH AND SUPPER. AND THAT'S WHERE THAT MIKE CAN SPEAK TO THAT. AT FIRST BAPTIST CHURCH THEY HAD A -- I CAN'T RECALL THE NAME OF THE ORGANIZATION COME IN AND THEY FED US. SO THAT WASN'T VOLUNTEERS.

THAT WAS A -- WASN'T AN EXPENSE WE HAD TO INCUR. IT WAS JUST WONDERFUL FOR THEM TO COME IN AND PROVIDE THAT. WE DIDN'T HAVE EXPENSE AT THAT ONE PARTICULARS.

I THINK DRIPPING SPRINGS DID THEY HAVE -- THE FIRE DEPARTMENT SAID US.

VOLUNTEERS FOR THAT. >> SURE, GO AHEAD. I KNOW WE GET THE IDEA, BUT GO

AHEAD. >> OUR PARTNERS OUT THERE AND I CAN APPRECIATE THE CONCERN FROM MR. AMAYA'S STANDPOINT BECAUSE SOMETIMES YOU DON'T NOTE ENTIRE STORY UNTIL IT COMES OUT.

THE COVER OF VOLUNTEERS IS THERE FROM 1 TO TIME FRAME OF 10:00, 9:00.

THE REALITY IS WE'RE THERE AT 9:30. THEY CAME IN AT 9:30.

WE DID PRETESTING FOR ALL THESE VOLUNTEERS. WE GET THEM ALL SET UP, TRAINED, AND MANY OF OUR VOLUNTEERS COME IN -- THAT'S WHY WE TREAT THEM AT LUNCHTIME BECAUSE WE'RE HAVING TO GET THERE SO EARLY AND ALSO IN THE EVENING TIME. IT'S TAXING.

-- VOLUNTEERS. ONE SHIFT OF VOLUNTEERS, LIKE MYSELF, WE'VE ALL DONE THAT.

BUT THESE VOLUNTEERS WE'RE TRADING THEM OUT AT A 3:00 TIME FRAME OF THE THAT WAS THE IDEA.

WE CAN'T GIVE THEM ANY MONEY. THE LEAST WE CAN DO IS FEED THEM AND THANK THEM FOR THEIR EFFORT.

THAT'S ALL THE VOLUNTEERS WALK AWAY IS RESPECT. THAT'S WHERE THESE IMPROMPTU WITHOUT -- BECAUSE -- $500. AND THAT'S REALLY IF WE'RE GOING TO DOT IT BACK A LITTLE BIT IF WE HAD MORE FLEXIBILITY WE PROBABLY WOULDN'T SEE IT COMING TO THE COURT THAT OFTEN BECAUSE IT SAID $1,000, THEN IT WOULD HAVE BEEN EASIER FOR US TO DO WITHIN THE GUIDELINES BUT THAT'S

WHERE WE SIT. >> THANK YOU, MR. JONES. I BELIEVE THIS BODY UNDERSTANDS

[00:40:01]

AND SUPPORTS THE EFFORT. >> WHERE DO WE WANT TO PULL THE FUNDS FROM?

>> OUR SUGGESTION IS CONTINGENCIES AND ESTIMATED AMOUNT FROM MISS CRUMLEY.

>> DEPENDING ON OUR FUTURE CLINICS. I MEAN, I WOULD SAY THAT ANOTHER $12,000 WOULD GET US THROUGH SEVERAL OF OUR CLINICS. WE MAY NOT MEET THAT AMOUNT, BUT IT WOULD CERTAINLY COVER US BEING IN THIS SITUATION AGAIN AT 10,000 TO $12,000 LIKE I SAID.

HOPEFULLY, WE WON'T GET NEAR THAT, BUT I DON'T KNOW. IT JUST DEPENDS.

>> I WILL ADD TO THAT, MISS CRUMLEY. SHE'S RIGHT BY SAYING WE MAY NOT GET TO THAT SPECIFICALLY BECAUSE I BELIEVE MOST LIKELY WE WON'T GET TO THAT BECAUSE OF THE CONTRACTS HAD A WE ARE SPACES WE'RE INTERACTING IN THE CURATIVE AGREEMENT I SIGNED LAST WEEK. ALL THE THINGS WE'RE DOING. I KNOW THIS SOUNDS COUNTER INTUITIVE BUT OUR JOB TO GET FOLKS VACCINATED, BUT US NOT TO BE AND I KNOW THIS MIGHT SOUND CONTROVERSIAL, BUT IT'S OWE IT'S NOT TO BE IN THE VACCINATION BUSINESS, BUT TO TEAM UP WITH THE PUBLIC-PRIVATE PARTNERSHIPS. FOR THEM TO STEP OUT AND MULTIPLY OUR EFFORTS, AND SO IN THOSE SPACES WE WILL WE WILL BE LEANING ON THE PROFESSIONALS IN THAT SPACE AND THEY WON'T BE -- I KNOW THIS SOUNDS TERRIBLE, BUT THEY WON'T BE FED BY US BECAUSE IT'S GOING TO BE A SEPARATE

INDEPENDENT EFFORT. >> IF WE COULD -- IF I COULD ASR FOOD.

BUT FOR VACCINE-RELATE THE EXPENSES. WE DO HAVE TO PURCHASE OTHER ITEMS OUR ANSWER LATERIES DO NOT COME WITH BAND-AIDS. THEY DON'T COME WITH OTHER THINGS THAT WE'RE HAVING TO PAY FOR, IF WE CAN BROADEN THAT. THOSE ITEMS THAT WE'RE ALLOWED

TO PURCHASE. THAT WOULD. >> IS THIS NEED TO BE A SEPARATE

AGENDA ITEM THEY BRING TO COURT. >> FOR THE SEPARATE ITEMS. WE'RE JUST TALKING ABOUT MEALS.

>> WE'RE OKAY. AS LONG AS IT'S COVID WE CAN TALK ABOUT IT NOW.

IF YOU'RE PROPOSING TO TAKE MORE SPECIFIC ACTIONS YOU CAN BRING SOMETHING BACK.

BACK NEXT WEEK. >> SO WE COULD. SORRY MR. KENNEDY.

GO AHEAD. >> I WAS GOING TO ASK IF WE CAN OPEN ITEM NUMBER ONE AND DO ITP.

>> I THINK SOUNDS ALSO LIKES WE COULD AMEND THIS TO BE A LITTLE MORE INCLUSIVE.

THAT'S HOW I INTERPRET. THAT WE COULD AMEND SIX TO BE MORE INCLUSIVE TO SATISFY MISS CRUMLEY'S RECOMMENDATION. SO IF WE CAN GET A MOTION WITH THAT OPENNESS, I THINK WE CAN

PULL IT OFF. >> SORRY. >> WE HAVE A MOTION TO IMPROVE

THIS ONE. >> SO IF WE WILL EXPAND OR MODIFY THE MOTION TO INCORPORATE

MISS CRUMLEY'S. >> WE WANT THE PLANS TO COME FROM.

>> OPEN NUMBER ONE. >> THAT MIGHT BE EASIER FOR YOU. >> DO YOU WANT TO PROVE THIS

NOW. >> YES, YES. THAT'S HOW WE DO IT.

I'M SORRY. I WASN'T SURE. I'M KIDDING.

MISS MARISOL, DO YOU THINK WE SHOULD APPROVE IT? I'M TOTALLY PLAYING.

I'M PLAYING, I'M PLAYING, I'M PLAYING. >> SO IS THE $10,000 LIMIT OK?

>> I THINK THAT'S SUFFICIENT. WE'RE ATTEMPTING TO GET OUT OF THE VACCINE BUSINESS AND THAT'S PROBABLY WHAT WE CAN COVER THE PLAN FOR IMMEDIATE OUT IF YOU'RE AND GET US THROUGH.

>> SO JUST FOR CLARITY, CAN WE PLEASE REAT THE MOTION? >> YEAH.

>> JUDGE, I'LL MOVE A NEETION WE -- MOTION THAT WE APPROVE THE AMOUNT WITH NO PURCHASE ORDERS WAS ISSUED PER COUNTY PURCHASE POLICY AND AMEND THE BUDGET ACCORDINGLY.

>> SECOND. >> WE HAVE A MOTION AND A SECOND.

ARE THERE ANY OTHER COMMENTS? DR. CARDENAS, PLEASE CALL THE ROLL.

>> COMMISSIONER SMITH. >> YES. >> COMMISSIONER JONES.

>> YES. >> COMMISSIONER SHELL. >> YES.

>> COMMISSIONER INGALSBE? YES. >> JUDGE BECERRA.

VACCINE. >> PERFECT, WELL DONE. WE HAVE A MOTION AND A SECOND.

YES, MA'AM? >> THAT WAS ME, JUDGE. >> MY SHEARING GOING OUT.

>> JUST TO CLARIFY, AGAIN -- HEARING IS GOING OUT. >> JUST TO CLARIFY THE STATE DOES NOT PROVIDE BAND-AIDS BUT WE'RE ALSO HAVING ISSUES WITH SYRINGES AND NEEDLES NOT BEING EFFICIENT. WE EITHER DON'T GET ENOUGH OR THEY ARE NOT ADEQUATE IN FOR.

>> I BELIEVE THAT COMMISSIONER SHELL'S MOTION WAS WORDED BROADLY ENOUGH TO CAPTURE ALL THINGS VACCINATION COVID RELATED ON THIS FRONT. AM I OK TO UNDERSTAND THAT?

>> I JUST WANTED TO EXPLAIN THAT. >> AND AGAIN, THANKS TO THE

VOLUNTEERS WHAT THEY ARE DOING. >> ABSOLUTELY, YOU BEST. THE MOTION IS AN ALL INCLUSIVE MOTION TO SUPPORT THE COVID RESPONSE THIS GENERAL THE ON THE THINGS THAT ARE BEING MOVED.

WE STILL HAVE A SECOND. ANY OTHER COMMENTS? >> I HAVE A COMMENT.

LOOK, I'M NOT COMPLAINING WITH THE AMOUNT OR ANYTHING, BUT WHEN WE WERE ON NUMBER SIX I THOUGHT WE SAID 10,000 TO $12,000 AND THAT AMOUNT WOULD BE USED ALSO FOR THOSE INS LATERIES AND NOW WE HAVE ANOTHER MOTION FOR $15,000 FOR THE OTHER STUFF. -- ANCILLARY.

DO WE NEED THAT MUCH? >> THE 15 IS TOTAL, COMMISSIONER.

WE DO HAVE A COUPLE OF EXPENDITURES MEAL EXPENSE THAT'S DID NOT GO OVER THE PURCHASE ORDER THAT WE'RE GOING TO PAY AS SGHOOL OK. SO IT'S AN ADDITIONAL $5,000,

RIGHT? >> YES, YES. >> THE TOTAL TEAM WE PUT IN THAT

LINE. >> PERFECT. NO, THAT'S GOOD.

BECAUSE IF YOU HAVE THAT QUESTION, SOMEONE ELSE VIEWING MAY HAVE THAT QUESTION AS WELL.

THANK YOU, COMMISSIONER INGALSBE. IF THERE ARE NO OTHER COMMENTS

OR QUESTIONS, PLEASE CALL THE ROL. >> COMMISSIONER INGALSBE.

>> YES. >> COMMISSIONER JONES. >> YES.

>> COMMISSIONER SHELL. >> YES. >> COMMISSIONER SMITH.

>> YES. >> JUDGE BECERRA. >> YES.

PLEASE OPEN AGAIN I'M GOING TO GO THROUGH THESE AS FOLKS HAVE SIGNED UP FOR PUBLIC COMMENTS BECAUSE SOMETIMES THEY HAVE TO LEAVE AND DON'T GET A CHANCE TO COMMENT.

SO PLEASE OPEN NUMBER 11. >> NUMBER 11, ACCEPT THE 2020 RACIAL PROFILING REPORT FROM

[11. Accept the 2020 Racial Profiling Report from Hays County Constable Office, Precinct 1. ]

HAYS COUNTY CONSTABLE OFFICE PRECINCT ONE. >> SO MOVED.

>> WE HAVE A MOTION. >> SECOND. >> AND A SECOND.

I HAVE ONE SIGNED UP TO SPEAK MR. RODRIGO AMAYA. >> THANK YOU, JUDGE, COMMISSIONERS. ON THIS AGENDA ITEM LAST YEAR SOMEWHERE AROUND AUGUST OR SO, I HAD A CONVERSATION DOWN AT ROTUNDA WITH TWO FORMER DEPUTY CONSTABLES.

THEY ARE TALKING TO ME ABOUT THEIR TRAFFIC STOPS AND HOW WERE UNHAPPEN WIT CONSTABLE BECAUSE HE HAD ORDERED THEM TO STOP DOING TRAFFIC STOPS. IN OUR CONVERSATION THEY DISCLSED TO ME THAT THEY HAD OVER 300 TRAFFIC STOPS IN SCHOOL ZONES.

AND I APPRECIATE THEM DOING THAT. IT LOOKED AT THE OWE "I LOOKED AT THE RACIAL PROFILING BEING SUBMITTED. YESTERDAY WAS THE DEADLINE.

THIS REFLECTS 167 TRAFFIC STOPS. THEY ARE WORRIED ABOUT THAT, JUST LIKE I AM.

I DON'T KNOW WHAT THE PROBLEM IS BUT IT DOESN'T SEEM TO BE AN ACCURATE FIGURE.

AND I FILED AN OFFICIAL COMPLAINT TO LOOK INTO THIS. NOW THIS AREA HAS BEEN PLAGUED WITH QUITE A BIT OF INCOMPETENCE AT THE LEVEL OF SOME OF THE OFFICES AND STUFF.

SO Y'ALL REMEMBER LAST YEAR IT COST ONE OF THE ELECTED CONSTABLES THINKS POSITION.

SO AGAIN, THIS IS NOT ONLY ONE. IF YOU AT CONSTABLE OUT OF DRIPPING SPRINGS I DIDN'T GET TO STICK AROUND LAST TIME Y'ALL WERE IN EXECUTIVE SESSION BUT THAT HAD A PUNCH INCONSISTENCIES I IDENTIFY. WHAT QUALIFIES ME TO DO THE AUDITS THAT I HAD TO DO COMPLIANCE REVIEWS FOR COMPANIES ON A FEDERAL LEVEL, SO I'VE GOT A LITTLE EXPERIENCE UNDER MY BELT. I JUST DON'T COME UP HERE AND TALK JUST TO TALK.

WE DID PUT UP COMPANIES OUT OF SERVICE THROUGH THE MILLIONS OF DOLLARS AND SO AND I HAVE THE

EXPERIENCE AND BACKGROUND FOR THOSE CONCERNS. >> THANK YOU MR. AMAYA.

WE HAVE A MOTION AND A SECOND. THIS IS YOUR AGENDA ITEM. >> WITH REGARDS TO MR. AMAYA I REALLY DON'T KNOW. ALL I CAN SPEAK TO IS WHAT WAS SUBMITTED AS THE TOTE STOPS.

>> AMARIS: AS A JUST IN CASE AND IT'S NOT TO PUT ANYBODY ON THE SPOT BUT WE DO HAVE A CHIEF PERFECT PRECINCT ONE HERE AND HE'S WILLINGLY -- GOOD, GOOD, GOOD.

I DON'T WANT IT PUT YOU ON THE SPOT HERE CHIEF BUT I HAVE THE CHIEF DEPUTY HERE MAYBE HE CAN EXPAND ON THE COMMENTS IN SO YEAH, NO PROBLEM. LAST YEAR OF COURSE WE KNOW WE RAN INTO THE COVID SITUATION AND SO TRAFFIC STOPS WERE DOWN A LOT LESS TRAFFIC ON THE STREET.

[00:50:05]

WE ARE EXTREMELY BUSY AS WELL. SO OUR PRECINCT CONSISTS OF MAINLY CIVIL PROCESS.

SO THAT IS THE DISCREPANCY FROM LAST YEAR TO THIS YEAR. THIS REPORT.

THEY ARE DOWN. THAT'S ALL THERE IS TO IT. >> ANY OTHER QUESTIONS? THANK YOU, SIR. THANK YOU FOR STEPPING UP TO THE PODIUM.

THERE'S A LOT OF COMMENTS. PLEASE CALL THE ROLL. >> COMMISSIONER JONES.

>> YES. >> COMMISSIONER SHELL. >> YES.

>> COMMISSIONER INGALSBE? YES. >> COMMISSIONER SMITH.

WE HAVE A MOTION AND A SECOND. WE HAVE ONE PERSON SIGNED UP TO SPEAK AND IT IS MR. RODRIGO AMAYA. THREE MINUTES IF YOU'LL START HIS TIME.

>> THANK YOU, JUDGE, COMMISSIONERS AGAIN. ON THIS AGENDA ITEM, I FELT THE NEED TO I ALTHOUGH I DO APPRECIATE AND I'M PRETTY SURE THE INDIGENOUS CULTURES TO APPRECIATE THE $1500. HOWEVER, SOMETHING AS IMPORTANT AS THIS AGENDA ITEM TO ONLY GET $1500 WHILE I HEAR OVER AND OVER THE UNJUSTIFIED AMOUNT FOR OTHER MEANINGLESS, YOU KNOW, NOT MEANINGLESS BUT AGENDA ITEMS THAT, YOU KNOW, WOULD NOT CONTRIBUTE MANY SMUCH A WAY LIKE

THIS. >> I'M GLAD IT'S BEING DONE. IT'S LONG OVERDUE.

I'M A BIG HISTORY GUY. I READ ABOUT HOW THE NATIVES WERE.

NOT CONSIDERED HUMAN AND ALL THE ISSUES THAT THEY FACED. EVERY CULTURE HAS ITS ISSUES.

BUT $1500, COMMISSIONERS? YOU KNOW, AND FOR IT TO BE THE JUDGE THAT SUPPORTS THIS.

I HEAR THE COURT TALK ABOUT BEING FAIR THIS CLEARLY SHOWS IT DOESN'T MEAN WHAT YOU SAY.

$1500 IS A NICE DROP IN THE BUCKET BUT IT COULD BE A WHOLE LOT BETTER THANK YOU.

>> THANK YOU MR. AMAYA. THIS IS A SLIGHTLY DIFFERENT FORMAT ON AGENDAITE SOM IT'S NOT DURING THE PUBLIC COMMENTS. I WILL EXPAND FURTHER TO PROVIDE MORE INFORMATION.

EACH OFFICE HAS A BUDGETED AMOUNT THAT THEY USE FOR THINGS LIKE THEY CAN SEE AS, I COULD SUMMARIZE OR GENERALIZE IT AS BENEFICIAL TO THE EFFORTS THAT THEY ARE FOCUSED ON PARTICIPATING IN SOME KIND OF WAY. THE REASON THAT IT HAS MY NAME ON IT EXACTLY WITH MY OFFICE. THAT IT IS A COMMISSIONERS COURT GENERAL BUDGET ENDEAVOUR.

IT'S THE BUDGET DIRECTLY FROM THE COUNTY JUDGE'S OFFICE AND THAT'S THE REASON IT ONLY HAS MY NAME ON IT. IF THERE ARE NO OTHER COMMENTS, QUESTIONS?

>> I WAS GOING TO THANK YOU FOR THAT EXPLANATION. I'VE SUPPORTED AND DO SUPPORT THIS INSTITUTE. THEY HAVE COME TO ME AT TIMES ALSO ASKING FOR FUNDS FOR MY COMMUNITY SERVICES BUDGET AND THEY JUST AT THIS TIME THOSE GO TO A NEW JUDGE.

I APPRECIATE YOUR CONTRIBUTION TO THEM AND YEAH, I THINK THEY ARE A GREAT ORGANIZATION AND

WE'LL CONTINUE TO SUPPORT THEIR EFFORTS. >> THANK YOU, COMMISSIONER INGALSBE. THAT IS JUST HOW IT UNFOLDS. SO IF THERE ARE NO OTHER

COMMENTS, PLEASE CALL THE ROLL. >> COMMISSIONER SMITH? >> NO COMMISSIONER SNIG.

>> SO MOVED. >> WE HAVE A MOTION AND A SECOND.

HOLD ON ONE SECOND, SIR. NOT YET. SORRY.

AND WE HAVE TWO PEOPLE SIGNED UP TO SPEAK. MR. RODRIGO AMAYA FOLLOWED BY

[00:55:01]

MR. DAN LYON. IF YOU WILL PLEASE START THEIR TIME.

>> THANK YOU AGAIN, JUDGE, COURT. ON THIS AGENDA ITEM DIRECT A SUMMARY ON IT. IT SAID THE JUSTFYS -- JUSTIFICATION REQUEST WAS AS A RESULT OF THE ROAD CONDITIONS? WHAT DOES THAT MEAN, THE SNOW MAKE THE POTHOLES IN THE ROAD? IS THAT WHAT THAT MEANS IS THAT'S WHAT I'M DETERMINING HERE.

THE ROADS AREN'T MAINTAINED ESPECIALLY PRECINCT ONE. THEY ARE HEAVILY NEGLECTED.

I'VE GOT ALL KINDS OF PICTURES. I'VE GOT ALL KINDS OF CITIZENS COMPLAINING TO ME.

SOMETIMES I'M SITTING DOWN EATING BREAKFAST AND I LOVE IT. I LOVE THEM COMING TO ME AND TELLING ME ALL THAT STUFF. IT'S JUST SO MUCH. IF THINGS WOULD REALLY GREATLY IMPROVE, YOU KNOW, I LIKE QUIET FROM TIME TO TIME TOO, YOU KNOW. BUT FOR YOU TO COME AND WRITE IT OUT THAT AS A RESULT OF THE CONDITIONS A 4 BY 4 F-250 IS A DIESEL.

I KNOW THEY PUT ON THERE OPTION IS TO LEASE. I'VE GOT LOTS OF TROUBLE WITH SOMES -- A LOT OF THESE REQUESTS THAT ARE COMING UP HERE. IF YOU LOOK DOWNTOWN HERE AT SAN MARCOS IN THE PARKS RANGERS OFFICE THEY ARE RUNNING A BRAND NEW Z-71 PICKUP WITH ABOUT $20,000 WORTH OF LIGHTS. THEY DON'T NEED -- CAN'T JUSTIFY IT.

ONE TIME WHEN I WAS A MARSHALL IN -- THE COUNTY COURT -- ASSOCIATE JUDGE ASKED ME SLASH COURT ADMINISTRATOR ASKED ME SAID MARSHAL, I WANT TO GET YOU A NEW CAR.

I DON'T NEED IT. NO OTHER -- PUT THEM FUNDS SOMEWHERE ELSE.

I DIDN'T NEED A CAR. I DIDN'T GET A CAR. I WAS ABLE TO DO IT MY JOB.

IT'S NOT THE VEHICLE THAT MAKES THE OFFICER. IT'S THE OFFICER THAT MAKES THAT. SO IN NO WAY CAN YOU -- AND I SAY THAT YOU CAN JUSTIFY THIS REQUEST. SERIOUSLY CONSIDER. THANK YOU.

>> THANK YOU, SIR. NEXT WE HAVE MR. DAN LYON. >> THANK YOU JUDGE BECERRA.

I REALIZE THERE ARE TIMES THAT EMERGENCY SERVICES CAN USE A 4 BY 4 VEHICLE, BUT THE TRUTH IS THAT THE VAST MAJORITY OF THE TIME THEY DON'T NEED THAT VEHICLE, AND I WOULD THINK THAT IN AN EMERGENCY SITUATION THEY COULD BORROW A VEHICLE FROM ANOTHER DEPARTMENT? YOU KNOW, SPENDING EXCESSIVE SPENDING HAS CONSEQUENCES. IT'S BECAUSE OF THE EXCESSIVE SPENDING OF THIS COURT THAT WE'RE IN THIS SITUATION WHERE WE DON'T HAVE FUNDS AVAILABLE FOR THINGS LIKE THIS. I MEAN IT WOULD BE GREAT TO HAVE THE FUNDS ABLE TO AFFORD ONE OF THESE TRUCKS, BUT WE SIMPLY DON'T HAVE IT. WE'RE SPENDING BORROWED MONEY.

WE COULD HAVE EASILY PAID FOR THIS TRUCK WITH THE $20 MILLION PLUS DOLLARS WITH WHICH WE GAVE IN INTEREST TO BANKERS LAST MONTH. BUT WE CAN'T AFFORD IT NOW BECAUSE OF POOR DECISIONS IN THE PAST. AND AT SOME POINT Y'ALL ARE GOING TO HAVE TO FIGURE OUT HOW TO LIVE ON A BUDGET AND NOT ONLY LIVE ON A BUDGET, BUT START PAYING BACK THE MONEY THAT YOU'VE BORROWED. WE'RE NOT GOING TO BE ABLE TO CONTINUALLY SQUEEZE THE PEOPLE OF HAYS COUNTY. WE'VE GOT PEOPLE LOSING THEIR HOMES BECAUSE THEIR TAXES ARE SIMPLY TOO HIGH. AND THE TAXES THAT I PAY, IT'S LIKE RENT ON MY OWN PROPERTY, AND AND I COULD TAKE A VACATION IN EUROPE EVERY YEAR PROBABLY TWO WEEKS TO A MONTH EASILY ON THE AMOUNT OF MONEY THAT I PAY IN TAXES.

AND I'M NOT GETTING MY MONEY'S WORTH. THERE'S NO DOUBT MOST THINGS I DO FOR MYSELF. THE ONLY THING I CAN THINK THAT THE COUNTY DOES FOR ME IS THE ROADS. AND NOW WE'RE NEEDING NEW VEHICLES BECAUSE THE COUNTY IS NOT MAINTAINING THE ROADS. WELL I'M SORRY. IT DOESN'T WORK THAT WAY.

WE CAN'T BUY EVERY DEPARTMENT A NEW VEHICLE. LIKE I SAY UNDER THE VERY RARE CIRCUMSTANCES WHERE A VEHICLE LIKE IT WOULD BE NEEDED, IT CAN BE BORROWED FROM ANOTHER DEPARTMENT. I SEE THE SHERIFFS VEHICLES GOING INTO NEIGHBORHOODS THAT AREN'T HIGH CRIME. THEY JUST CIRCLE AROUND AND, YOU KNOW? WE DON'T NEED THAT. WE NEED THEM AVAILABLE WHEN THEY ARE CALLED AND ONLY THEN.

[01:00:06]

SO WE'VE GOT AN EXCESS OF VEHICLES OUT THERE ALREADY AND I THINK ONE COULD BE BORROWED IN

TIME OF EMERGENCY. THANK YOU VERY MUCH. >> THANK YOU, SIR.

>> NOW MR. JONES, IF YOU WILL PLEASE APPROACH THE PODIUM. >> MIKE JONES, DIRECTOR OF EMERGENCY SERVICES. JUST A LITTLE BIT ABOUT THE VEHICLE.

WE'RE NOT JUST BUYING A GRAND NEW VEHICLE BECAUSE WE'RE OAS. AS YOU GUYS AND GALS KNOW ONE OF THE REASONS WE ASKED FOR HAD VEHICLE A WHILE BACK IS BECAUSE OF ITS CAPACITY AND THIS WINTER STORM SAID THEIR LIMITED FOR OUR PARTNERS TO ASSIST US OUT THERE AND THANK GOD FOR -- JONES HO CAME THROUGH AND HELPED NEWS MANY WAYS TO TRANSPORT ITEMS WE HAD TO GO TO DIFFERENT PARTS OF THE COUNTY. SO THAT BEING SAID, WE'RE SOMEWHAT HAM IN THAT WE DIDN'T HAVE THE CAPACITY OR BUILDING TO GO OUT ON THE ROADS WHEN WE HAD THE SNOW OUT THERE AND EMPHASIZED. I NEVER THOUGHT WE NEEDED A 4 X 4 UNTIL THIS WINTERTIME.

THE STORM CAME THROUGH THERE AND IT WAS EMPHASIZED TO ME ALSO FROM A FARMER'S STANDPOINT IF HE HAS TO GO OUT TO A LOCATION WHICH REQUIRES A 4 X 4 HE'S LIMITED TO HIS CAPACITY, TOO.

WE'RE NOT JUST LIMITED FOR THIS TRUCK TO MORE OR LESS BE AN OAS. OR Y'ALL LIKE FOR TO BE AN OSA ASSET BY THE FIRE MARSHAL DURING PEACETIME, DURING HIS OFFICE WHAT I WOULD CALL DISASTER TIME FRAME. SO THERE'S A LOT MORE WE CAN BRING TO THE TABLE WITH A 4 X 4 THAN WHAT WE CAN WITH A STANDARD PICKUP TWRUK TWO-WHEEL DRIVE. THAT 4 X 4 IS A -- THAT GIVES US BETTER TOWING CAPACITY WITH THERS. RIGHT NOW I HAVE REALLY GOOD TRAILERS OUT THERE. NOT A SINGLE ONE OF OUR TAHOES CAN PULL OUR TRAILERS.

WE HAVE ONE PICKUP TRUCK WHICH IS A HAZMAT TRUCK. OTHERWISE I'M SUBJECT TO GO OUT AND BEGGING AND BORROW OR USE MY OWN PICKUP TRUCK OR MY STAFF'S OWN PICKUP TRUCKS FROM DRIPPING SPRINGS WHICH I KNOW IS MAYBE NOT A WAY OF DOING THINGS. WE'RE NOT -- THIS OFFICE DOESN'T GO OUT THERE WITH THE NOTION I CAN'T TO IT BECAUSE I DON'T HAVE A COUNTY-OWNED VEHICLE.

WE USE OUR PERSONAL VEHICLES TO MAKE THINGS HAPPEN. AT END OF THE DAY IT'S WHAT WE DO FOR THESE COUNTY CITIZENS AND HOW WE RESPOND. NOW THAT SAID, I'D ALSO LIKE TO HAVE THIS BE DONE SO QUICKLY WHEN WE PUT THIS ON THE AGENDA. I DIDN'T GET DUE DILIGENCE OF GETTING THE RIGHT PRICE AND BE ABLE TO BRING TO YOU A BETTER SOLUTION.

WHILE WE HAD A PURCHASE PRICE, THE ENTERPRISE SYSTEM OFFERED US A BETTER OPPORTUNITY US TO GET A VEHICLE AND CONTINUE HAD A PROCESS IN THAT VEHICLE AS TIME GOES ON SO.

I WOULD LIKE TO ASK THE COURT TO DO IS MAYBE CONSIDERING TAILING THIS FOR THE TIME BEING SO I CAN COME BACK TO Y'ALL WITHIN ENTERPRISE PRICE AND OPTIONS GOING WITH THAT FOR BETTER

CONSIDERATION. >> OK. >> THAT'S FINE WITH ME AND I'LL SAY THAT, YOU KNOW, WE OBVIOUSLY LOOKED AT THIS IN THE BUDGET. IT WAS NOT INCLUDED IN THE BUDGET IN THE LAST ONE. ANY TIME YOU'RE FUNDING THINGS FOR EMERGENCY SERVICES IT'S ALWAYS HARD BECAUSE OFTENTIMES, WE COULD GO YEARS WITHOUT NEEDINGSOMETHING THAT WE BUY.

IT IS A VERY DIFFICULT DECISION. AT THAT TIME WE DECIDED THE COURT DECIDED NOT TO FUND THIS VEHICLE FOR EMERGENCY SERVICES. IT WOULD BE A SIMILAR THING TO A GENERATOR.

MANY PEOPLE WOULD LOVE TO HAVE HAD A GENERATOR SETTING OUT THERE WATER SYSTEM WHICH PROBABLY WOULD HAVE BEEN SITTING THERE FOR 20 YEARS BUT PROBABLY DIDN'T TAKE TIME BECAUSE THE -- WE HAVE BEEN HAMMERING ON ALL THESE DIFFERENT PUBLIC ENTER TIES FOR NOT BEING PREPARED FOR THESE. IT'S A HARD DECISION TO MAKE. YOU INVEST IN SOMETHING YOU'RE NOT GOING TO MAKE EVERY SINGLE DAY OF THE YEAR AND IF YOU DON'T WHAT ARE THE CONSEQUENCE IF'S YOU NEED IT. THAT'S THE TYPE OF DECISION WE'RE BEING ASKED TO MAKE.

I CAN SAY FROM JUST THE RESPONSE TO THE WINTER STORM, AND I DON'T GHARS THE ROAD LANGUAGE MEANS IN THIS. I DON'T BELIEVE YOU'RE ASKING FOR A 4 X 4.

I SUSPECT THE HAVE AN THAT IN THE EVENT THERE'S OBSTRUCTION TO ROADS WHETHER IT'S ICE, FLOODS OR SOMETHING ELSE YOU COULD HAVE A STHRAEK HANDLE THAT SITUATION AND I THINK MAKES SENSE THAT IF -- VEHICLE THAT COULD HANDLE THAT SITUATION AND I THINK IT MAKES SENSE THAT IF YOU NEED A 4 X 4, THAT IT WOULD BE NEED IN THIS EXAMPLE. WE HAD AN ICE STORM AND YOU DON'T HAVE A 4 X 4 YOUR TRAVEL IS VERY LIMITED I THINK THAT THAT'S THE DECISION THE COURT WILL BE MAKING WHEN YOU BRING THIS BACK JUST TO ANSWER SOME OF THE QUESTIONS THAT WERE PRESENTED. IS THAT -- WE HAVE TO MAKE DECISIONS ON WHAT WE BUY FOR EMERGENCY SERVICES, NOT KNOWING EXACTLY WHEN WE'RE GOING TO NEED THEM AND ALSO UNDERSTAND WE MIGHT BUY SOMETHING AND MIGHT USE IT FOR A VERY LONG PERIOD OF TIME.

IN THIS RESPONSE I THINK I NOTICED THE EMERGENCY MANAGEMENT COORDINATOR USING A PERSONAL AND

[01:05:10]

THE JUDGE WAS IN A PERSONAL VEHICLE. WE ALL DID THAT.

THAT'S WHAT SHOWED US A NEED FOR SOMETHING LIKE IT WHICH WE PREVIOUSLY DENIED AND THE ROAD DEPARTMENT STEPPED UP IT. PROVIDE EVERYTHING WE POSSIBLY NEED.

THEY WERE USING THEIR OWN VEHICLES AND TRAILERS DELIVERING WATER I WITNESSED THAT AS WITH.

I THINK WE UTILIZED THE RESOURCE THAT'S WE HAD FOR SOMETHING LIKE THAT PLUS PERSONAL VEHICLES AND TO ME IT DID SHOW US THAT PROBABLY THE MOST LIKELY THING AWOULD DO IN TYPES OF EMERGENCIES WHETHER IT IS A FLOOD OR SOMETHING LIKE IT WHERE WE HAVE LOSS OF POWER OR SPECIFICALLY LOSS OF WATER AND SEEING THIS IN SEVERAL FLOOD RESPONSES IN THE COUNTY IS DELIVERING CLEAN WATER. IT'S ONE OF THE NECESSITIES OF LIFE.

IF YOU GO WITHOUT YOUR WATER FOR EXTENDED PERIOD OF TIME, IT'S NOT GOOD.

THAT IS NOT GOOD. IN LOCATING BOTTLED WATER SOME WAS EMERGENCY WATER AND OUT TO THE PLACES THAT WE NEEDED. IN ORDER DO THAT DURING THAT TIME WE ALL NEEDED TRUCKS AND A 4 X 4 WAS MUCH BETTER THAN NOT. DID I THE SAME. I TOOK WATER TO MY PARENTS WHO WERE WITHOUT WATER FOR FOUR DAYS. I TOOK COOLERS OF WATER.

IF I DID NOT HAVE THE VEHICLE I HAD I PRONL BOY NOT HAVE HAD TO DO THAT.

I WOULD HAVE FOUND A FRIEND WHO COULD DO IT FOR ME. I'M JUST TRYING TO ANSWER THE QUESTIONS. IT'S NOT AN EASY ANSWER TO BUDGET.

TO SPEND MONEY IN THE RIGHT WAY OFTENTIMES EMERGENCY SERVICE TYPE PRODUCTS ARE THOSE THAT SET ASIDE AND GO AND WE BUY THIS, WHEN ARE WE GOING TO USE THIS. AND AND IT PROBABLY WILL SPECIFICALLY BECAUSE OF FLOODS, HURRICANES AND PEOPLE RELOCATED HERE AND WE GET TO FLOODWATERS OFTENTIMES MOBILITY IS ALSO LIMITED. SO JUST SOME OF MY IDEAS I'M RAM BBLEG 4 X 4 VERSUS NOT AND ALSO THE NEED FOR A TRUCK IN TIMES OF EMERGENCIES THAT ARE EXPERIENCED JUST OVER THESE LAST COUPLE OF WEEKS. I SEE THAT NEED AND MY THOUGHT IN THE BUDGET PROCESS IS WHAT THE ROAD DEPARTMENT HAS TRUCKS. WE'LL UTILIZE THEM.

MOST OF THE ROAD DEPARTMENT AREN'T FOUR-WHEEL I DON'T THINK.

WE CAN GO INTO THOSE DISCUSSIONS AS WELL OFTENTIMES WHEN WE BUDGET VEHICLES FOR THEM.

WE UNITED LIES THE RESOURCES. WHEN THE JUDGE -- COORDINATOR ALEX VILLALOBOS WERE THERE.

WE WERE UTILIZING EVERY TYPE OF RESOURCE THAT WE HAD ON THE COUNTY TO DO THESE THINGS.

AND AT THE SAME TIME OUR MAINTENANCE GUYS WERE USING THE TRUCKS HAD A -- FOUR-WHEEL DRIVE EITHER IT WORK ON PLACES WORK ON COUNTY BUILDINGS AND INSPECT COUNTY BUILDINGS AND THINGS LIKE THAT. I NOTICED A NEED TO HAVE AN EMERGENCY VEHICLE TO HAVE A VEHICLE THAT COULD BE USED NOT JUST TO PULL A TRAILER OTHER OTHER TRAILS ARE AND SET UP OPERATION BUZZ TO HALT THINGS IN ITS BED LIKE WATER SO I THINK IT WOULD BE WISE.

>> THANK YOU COMMISSIONER SHELL. VERY COMPLETE AND SOUND AND A PERSPECTIVE I AGREE WITH.

COMMISSIONER SMITH? >> I'M ONE OF THE ONES WHO BACK IN AUGUST OF LAST YEAR KIND OF QUESTIONED THIS AS PART OF THE BUDGET Q-AND I STILL HAVE SOME QUESTIONS RELATIVE TO THE OVERALL USES OF IT ON A DAILY BASIS. PUTTING THROUGH WHAT WE ASKED LAST WEEK SOME OF THE ATTRIBUTES YOU REQUESTED IN THE VEHICLE, THE REASONING BEHIND THEM AMAY NOT HAVE BEEN CLARIFIED EVEN THROUGH COMMISSIONER SHELL'S DIALOGUE A MOMENT AGO, I THINK PROBABLY NEED TO BE STATED. FIRST UP IS THE FOUR-WHEEL DRIVE ABILITY.

JUST TO PUT IT IN PERSPECTIVE TO THE POINT THE JUDGE MADE, OUR TRANSPORTATION DEPARTMENT HAS ONE FOUR-WHEEL DRIVE PICKUP TRUCK IN ITS FLEET. AND THERE ARE -- IN THEIR GREATEST NEED WHENEVER THEIR EMPLOYEES WERE OUT PUTTING IN JUST AS LONG AS DAYS AS OUR EMERGENCY SERVICES FOLKS TO PULL THEM OFF OF OF WORK THEY WERE DOING TO TRY TO ASSIST OUR CITIZENS OUT THERE TO ASSIST THE EMERGENCY SERVICES DEPARTMENT IN GOING AND PRO CURING WATER FROM DIFFERENT LOCATIONS AND DELIVERING THAT WATERS AND WE APPRECIATE IT, THEY WERE AT

[01:10:01]

CAPACITY. THE OTHER THING IS WHEN WE LOOK THE AT SIZE OF A VEHICLE I COMPLETESLY UNDERSTAND THE NEED AS FAR AS A TRAILER-PULLING CAPACITY IN THE VEHICLE YOU'RE ASKING FOR, BUT EVEN MORE SO THE CAPACITY FOR THAT, FOR THOSE SPECIFIC JOBS THAT COMMISSIONER SHELL MENTIONED OF HAULING WATER. THERE IS NO ONE I CAN TELL YOU THAT USED A PERSONAL VEHICLE THAT WEEK. ON ANY GIVEN TIME THIS H THREE PAELTS OF WATER ONE IN THE BED OF THE TRUCK AND TWO ON A TRAILER -- PALETS.

THE VEHICLE HALF-TON PICKUP TRUCK WAS COMPLETELY MAXED OUT. THE SIZE, NOT KNOWING THE SIZE OF THE PALETS OF WATER VARIED SUBSTANTIALLY. IT COULD CAUSE SOME REAL DAMAGE TO A VEHICLE IF YOU DIDN'T HAVE A F-250. AS FAR AS THE WATER DELIVER WAY WE DID EVEN LOCATIONS THAT WERE ON THOROUGHFARES I COULDN'T HAVE GOTTEN TO HILLS TO JUST AS AN EXAM THRM IS ONE RV BARK OVER 100 RESIDENTS RIGHT ON THE BLANCO BORDER THAT I KNOW WAS WITHOUT WATER FOR FIVE DAYS. WHENEVER I WAS ABLE TO GET THERE WITH PALLETS OF WATER EVEN PULLING THROUGH THAT PARK I COULD NOT HAVE GOTTEN THROUGH ARV PARK HAD WE NOT HAD FOUR-WHEEL DRIVE. SO I CAN SEE THE NEED THERE AND I APPRECIATE THAT YOU'RE WILLING TO COME BACK WITH A MORE SUCCINCT REQUEST BECAUSE I THINK THAT IT'S NEED.

>>ED. -- NEEDED. I WILL TELL YOU AFTER THE LAST TWO WEEKS OF SOMEWHAT I HAVE COME TO BE A WLEFER IN -- BELIEVER TO IN THE NEED YOU'RE ASKING FOR WHEN I WASN'T IN AUGUST AND I WOULD BE WILLING TO SUPPORT SOMETHING THAT'S MUCH MORE OF A DIRECT REQUEST WITH SOME MORE MEAT ON THE BONES TO FIGURE OUT EXACTLY WHAT IS NEEDED IN IT. I WOULD BE REMISS WITHOUT SAYING IF N THAT SAME CONVERSATION, WE HAD CONVERS ON A COUPLE OF OTHER VEHICLES THAT NOT NECESSARILY FOR -- CONVERSATIONS ON A COUPLE OF OTHER VEHICLES NOT NECESSARILY FOR OES BUT WITHIN THE LAST MONTH SPECIFICALLY IN THE LAST TWO WEEKS IT'S REALLY COME TO THE POINT THAT WE MAY HAVE TO ADDRESS THOSE AS WELL.

AND I KNOW OF AT LEAST ONE, AND THAT BEING THE CASE, I LOOK FORWARD TO SEEING THOSE REQUESTS AND REALLY TAKING A DEEP DIVE ON THEM IN THE NEXT COUPLE OF WEEKS AS WELL.

>> COMMISSIONER? >> JUDGE, I DON'T KNOW THAT I CAN ADD ANYTHING MORE THAN WHAT MY COLLEAGUES HAVE SHARED, BUT I APPRECIATE THE COMPREHENSIVE DISCUSSION THAT WE'RE HAVING.

BECAUSE I KNOW THAT WE DON'T JUST REQUESTS TRUCKS JUST TO REQUEST TRUCKS.

ON AATION IS IN MR. AMAYA I ALWAYS TOOK PRIDE IN SOME OF THE ROADS IN THE COUNTIES SO I'M GOING TO GET WITH HIM TO SEE WHERE WE MAY BE LACKING BUT JERRY AND THE TRANSPORTATION DEPARTMENT DO A GREAT JOB. SO ANYWAY I'LL GET WITH HIM. I ALWAYS THOUGHT I HAD THE BEST

RODS IN THE COUNTY. >> I'LL TRADE WITH YOU ON THE WEST RN SIDE.

I UNDERSTAND THE NEED FOR IT. I HAD TO GET OUT EVERY DAY AND I DIDN'T HAVE A CHOICE AND I HAD TO GET OUT EVERYDAY DURING THAT TIME. WITHOUT A FOUR-WHEEL DRIVE I

WOULDN'T HAVE BEEN ABLE TO GET AROUND SO I UNDERSTAND THE NEED. >> I WILL SAY THAT ON YOUR ROAD COMMENT COMMISSIONER INGALSBE, VERY OFTEN, PEOPLE DON'T UNDERSTAND WHERE THE LINE STARTS AND STOPS BETWEEN CITY AND COUNTY. I WAS RECEIVING SO MANY CONCERNS THAT IT'S NOT MY STYLE TO SAY THAT'S NOT US, THERE ARE SO MANY THINGS THAT WE HAVE VERY QUALIFIED AND PASSIONATE CITY FOLKS THAT ARE IN CHARGE OF, BUT THEY SEE US IN OUR PROXIMITY, OUR PRESENCE, IN THE HISTORIC DOWNTOWN. I MEAN, WE ARE THE CENTER OF GOVERNMENT IN THE AREA, IN THE REGION SO. I MEAN, I WILL ADD TO IT THAT I SAW FIREFIGHTERS COMING ALSO IN THEIR PERSONAL VEHICLE AFTER COMMISSIONER SMITH AND COMMISSIONER SHELL LEFT TO DROP OFF WATER IN THEIR PRECINCTS. I WAS THOCHING LOAD -- HELPING TO LOAD HOWIE MINER'S PERSONAL TRUCK. IT IS A BONA FIDE GIFT FOR ME AND I THANK THE LORD FOR IT, TO SEE HOW WE CAN -- WE CAN PUT PEOPLE OVER POLITICS AND

[01:15:03]

TOGETHER AND I'M SO GRATEFUL TO SEE FIRSTHAND DROPPING WHAT'S IN THEIR HANDS, ROLLING UP THEIR SLEEVES, AND SAYING HOW CAN I HELP? THAT HAD JUST BEEN SO REWARDING TO ME IN THAT ONE 4 X 4 THE ROAD CREW HAS, I'M EMBARRASSED TO SAY ACTUALLY CAME TO PICK ME UP ONE DAY BECAUSE I WAS TRAPPED. I NEEDED TO GET OUT TO SOME ELDER FACILITIES TO HELP IN SOME CAPACITY AND I HAD NO WAY OF GETTING. THERE HERE'S THE OTHER THING WE ALREADY SAID AND I'LL REITERATE FOR EMPHASISHEN WE NEED A FOUR-E AND WE NEED A TRUCK, SO DOES EVERYONE ELSE. SO EVERY ROAD VEHICLE WAS OUT. EVERY FIRST RESPONDER WAS OUT.

EVERY PERSON THAT CAN HELP WAS HELPING, AND I'M SITTING THERE WONDERING EVERYONE IS DOING WHAT

THEY CAN. >> JUDGE I WILL FIND ONE OTHER THING INTERESTING THAT OCCURRED TO THIS AND I DON'T KNOW IF THIS HAPPENED IN Y'ALL'S PRECINCTS AS WITH.

AT LEAST IN PRECINCT FOUR WITH ESD-1 AND ESD-6 WITH OUR PROVIDERS.

ON EVERY CALL FOR EMS SERVICE THAT WE HAD, WE ACTUALLY ESD-6 OUR FIRE ACTUALLY PAIRED WITH THOSE, WITH THOSE AMBULANCES AND THE REASON THEY DID THAT WAS BECAUSE WE HAVE WILDFIRE OR WILDLAND FIREFIGHTING CAPABILITY IN ESD-6. WHEN I SAY THAT WE HAVE FOUR-WHEEL DRIVE BRAUSH TRUCKS THAT GO OUT AND FIGHT WILDFIRES. EVEN IN SOME OF THE MOST URBANIZED AREAS IN OUR COUNTY OR SOME OF THE BEST REMEDIES WE HAVE I'LL USE LEDGE STONE DRIVE IN DRIPPING SPRING AS AN EXAMPLE. THERE'S A LARGE SENIOR FACILITY THERE BUT IT'S THE BASE OF A HILL. THE ONLY WAY OUR AMBULANCES COULD RESPOND TO THAT LOCATION WITH THAT LARGE SENIOR FACILITY WITH BRAND NEW ROADS RIGHT IN FRONT OF IT WAS THAT WE SENT A BRUSH TRUCK IN THERE TO GET FOLKS AND BRING THEM OUT TO THE STREET FOR THOSE AMBULANCES TO BE ABLE TO TAKE CARE OF THOSE FOLKS.

IT WAS A GREAT PARTNERSHIP THAT WE DID. THEY HAD TO DO SPUR OF THE MOMENT TO SOLVE THE PROBLEM, BUT IT REALLY PUT INTO PERSPECTIVE THAT WE HAD AREAS IN OUR COUNTY THAT IT COULD BE THE MOST BRAND NEW GREAT OF ROADWAY THERE IS, IF IT HAS A LITTLE BIT OF A HILL TO IT. WE COULD BE VERY WELL SNUCK THE SAME SITUATION.

SO I SEE THE NEED, ABOUT THROUGH ARE SITUATIONS WE JUST DON'T ANTICIPATE.

>> THANK YOU, COMMISSIONERS AND THANK YOU MR. JONES AND THIS ITEM HAS BEEN REQUESTED TO BE TABLED SO IT'S MY AGENDA ITEM AND IT.
