[PUBLIC COMMENTS]

THOSE IN THE AUDIENCE WHO HAVE SUBMITTED PUBLIC PARTICIPATION WITNESS FORMS WILL NOW HAVE THREE MINUTES TO SPEAK ON NONAGENDA RELATED TOPICS. UNFORTUNATELY NO ACTION WILL BE TAKEN BY THE COURT DURING PUBLIC COMMENTS AS WE ARE EXPECTED NOT TO RESPOND.

ANY QUESTIONS WILL BE TAKEN AS RHETORICAL. ALL COMMENTS AND OPINIONS 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 IN THE REMAINDER OF YOUR TIME. IN THE SPIRIT OF RESPECT, PLEASE SILENCE YOUR CELL PHONES.

FIRST UP TO SPEAK IS MR. DAN LYON. >> THANK YOU JUDGE BECERRA, GOOD MORNING. I'D LIKE TO BEGIN WITH SOMETHING FROM THE SAN MARCOS STATE OF THE RECORD THAT SAYS THEY SAYS HAYS PARK -- ON THE NOVEMBER BALLOT WILL NOT AFFECT TAX RATE.

WHY WOULD SOMEBODY SAY THAT? IT SAYS THAT -- THERE'S NO EFFECT ON THE TAX RATE. NOW THIS IS RIDICULOUS.

IT'S DELIBERATE DECEPTION. THE TAX RATE WAS ALREADY SET OF COURSE IT'S NOT GOING TO AFFECT THE TAX RATE. Y'ALL RESPONSIBLE FOR THAT DECEPTION.

I DON'T APPRECIATE IT. ALL RIGHT. LET'S GET TO SOMETHING ELSE HERE THERE'S BEEN A LOT OF TALK ABOUT ON THE NATIONAL LEVEL ABOUT THE UNITED STATES OF AMERICA BEING A DEMOCRACY. FRANKLY I'M CONCERNED ABOUT THE PEOPLE WHO DO NOT KNOW THE DIFFERENCE BETWEEN AN ADJECTIVE AND A TOWN IN OF OUR FORM OF GOVERNMENT IS A REPUBLIC WHICH IS A TOWN IN. IT IS A DEMOCRATIC REPUBLIC WITH THE WORD DEMOCRATIC AN ADJECTIVE. NOW THAT WE HAVE THAT STRAIGHT, I HAVE SOME QUOTES FROM THOMAS JEFFERSON AND OTHERS ON DEMOCRACY. QUOTE, A DEMOCRACY IS NOTHING MORE THAN MOB RULE WHERE 51% OF THE PEOPLE MAY TAKE AWAY THE RIGHTS OF THE OTHER 49.

THE END OF DEMOCRACY AND THE DEFEAT OF THE AMERICAN REVOLUTION WILL OCCUR WHEN GOVERNMENT FALLS INTO THE HANDS OF LENDING INSTITUTIONS AND MONEY AND CORPORATIONS, WHICH IS WHAT HAS HAPPENED HERE. I PREDICT FUTURE HAPPINESS FOR AMERICANS IF THEY CAN PREVENT THE GOVERNMENT FROM WASTING THE LABORS OF THE PEOPLE UNDER THE PRETENSE OF TAKING CARE OF THEM.

THAT'S ONE OF MY FAVORITES. I BELIEVE THAT BANKING INSTITUTIONS ARE MORE DANGEROUS FOR OUR LIBERTIES THAN STANDING ARMY. IF THE AMERICAN PEOPLE EVER ALLOW PRIVATE BANKS TO CONTROL THE ISSUE AND THE ISSUE THEIR CURRENCY, FIRST BY INFLATION,

[00:05:01]

THEN BY DEFLATION, THES AND CORPORATIONS GROW UP AROUND THE BANKS WILL DEPRIVE THE PEOPLE OF ALL PROPERTY UNTIL THEIR CHILDREN WAKE UP HOMELESS ON THE CONTINENT THEIR FATHERS CONQUERED. THAT'S EXACTLY WHAT'S HAPPENED WITH FEDERAL PRESERVE.

CARL MARC SAID QUOTE DEMOCRACY IS THE ROAD TO SOCIALISM, UNQOSMT -- CARL MARX.

JOHN ADAMS SAID REMEMBER DEMOCRACY NEVER LASTS LONG IT. SOON WASTES SCAUFTS AND MURDERS ITSELF. THERE NEVER WAS A DEMOCRACY YET THAT DID NOT COMMIT SUICIDE.

THOMAS JEFFERSON FURTHER STATED A REPUBLIC IS THE ONLY FORM OF GOVERNMENT WHICH IS NOT INTERNALLY AN OPEN OR SECRET WAR WITH THE RIGHTS OF MANKIND. WHEREVER THE PEOPLE ARE WELL INFORMED THEY CAN BE TRUSTED WITH THEIR OWN GO. WE HAVE SEEN HERE THEY HAVEN'T BEEN WELL INFORMED. THE DEMOCRACY WILL CEASE TO EXIST WHEN YOU TAKE AWAY FROMPTK AND GIVE TO THOSE WHO WOULD NOT. MOST BAD GOVERNMENT IS GROWN OUT OF TOO MUCH GOVERNMENT.

THE GREATEST DANGER TO AMERICAN FREEDOM IS A GOVERNMENT THAT IGNORES THE CONSTITUTION LIKE RIGHT HERE. NEVER SPEND YOUR MONEY BEFORE YOU'VE EARNED IT, WHICH Y'ALL.

DO IT IS ERROR ALONE WHICH NEEDS THE SUPPORT OF GOVERNMENT. TRUTH CAN STAND BY ITSELF.

YOU SUPPORT -- NO PROVISION IN OUR CONSTITUTION OUGHT TO BE DEAR TO MAN THAN THAT WHICH PROTECTS THE RIGHTS OF CONSCIENCE AGAINST THE ENTERPRISES OF THE CIVIL

AUTHORITY. THANK YOU VERY MUCH. >> THANK YOU, SIR.

NEXT UP WE HAVE MR. CASEY CUTLER. -- CASEY CUTLER.

>> IF I MAY? >> RIGHT THERE. THANK YOU, SIR.

>> I'M HERE REPRESENTING THE TRUTH WITH HISTORICAL CONSERVATION SOCIETY WE SUCH A POSITIVE RELATIONSHIP WITH THE COUNTY WHEN WE WERE DOING THE MASTER PLAN WITH 150.

WE DECIDED IT WAS A STARTING POINT AND LOOK AFTER OUR COMMUNITY.

WHAT YOU'RE GOING TO RECEIVING THE CONSULTING OVERLAND WHICH IS THE COMPANY THAT DESIGNED THE LADYBIRD JOHNSON WILDFLOWER CENTER. WE FELT LIKE THEY HAD A GOOD TIE TO THE COMMUNITY ALREADY. WE ASKED THEM TO HELP US ASSEMBLE THE DRIFTWOOD ROAD MAP WHERE WE HAVE FOCUS AREAS WHERE WE HAVE THE COMMUNITIES LOOKING AT TO PRESERVE AND ENHANCE TO EDUCATED CELEBRATE DRIFTWOOD COMMUNITY? TO PRESERVE, ENHANCE THE RICH SENSE OF COMMUNITY AND BELONGING. WHAT YOU HAVE IN YOUR HANDS HERE IS OUR VISION FOR THE FUTURE. ON JANUARY 20TH, WE PULLED TOGETHER COMMUNITY STAKEHOLDERS, WHICH INCLUDE PROPERTY OWNERS, BUSINESSES, DEVELOPERS AND CITIZENS.

WE ASK WHAT THEIR ASPIRATIONS FOR DRIFTWOOD. AND IN DOING SO, OVERLAND AND THE CITIZENS OF THE AREA TOOK A LOOK AT CULTURAL IDENTITY AND THE CHARACTER.

WITH IT WE LOOKED AT BELOW OUR CROSSINGS. RELOOKED AT THE LAND STEWARDSHIP. WE LOOKED AT THE VISION FOR DOWNTOWN DRIFTWOOD.

WE LOOKED AT THE ARCHITECTURAL CHARACTER AND WE ALSO LOOKED AT THE TRAFFIC CONTROL.

WE THAT ALL OF THIS FIT IN PERFECTLY INTO WHAT WE WERE DOING WHEN WE WORKED SO CLOSELY AND POSITIVELY WITH THE COUNTY ON THE 150 MASTER PLAN AND WE'RE HOPING FROM THIS POINT FORWARD THAT THE ROAD MAP AND THE 150 MASTER PLAN ARE USED AS A FOUNDATION WHEN WE'RE TALKING ABOUT THE FUTURE OF WHAT THE CENTER OF HAYS COUNTY LOOKS LIKE.

I THINK YOU WILL FIND IT A VERY POSITIVE DOCUMENT. IT'S SOMETHING ONCE AGAIN YOU FOLKS GOT US ON THE ROAD FOR THIS. THE RELATIONSHIP WE HAVE WITH YOU WAS SO VERY POSITIVE ON THE 150 MASTER PLAN. WE DIDN'T WANT THAT MOMENTUM TO STOP AND WE THINK THAT YOU WILL FIND WHEN YOU LOOK THROUGH OUR FUTURE FOR DRIFTWOOD, THAT IT WILL FIT IN PERFECTLY IN EVERYTHING THAT WE WERE ALL DOING ON THE 150 MASTER PLAN.

THANK YOU VERY MUCH FOR YOUR TIME. AND PLEASE FEEL FREE TO READ IT.

I THINK YOU WILL FIND IT AS QUALITY AS THE 150 MASTER PLAN, WHICH I KNOW I'VE TALKED TO ALL OF YOU ON AND YOU ALL THE YOU WERE VERY PROUD OF THAT, TOO. OK?

THANKS, FOLKS. >> THANK YOU, SIR. THANK YOU VERY MUCH AND I HAD A CHANCE TO FLIP THROUGH THIS AND IT'S BEAUTIFUL WORK, AND I'M GOING TO ASK THAT OUR CLERK SUBMIT THIS INTO OUR RECORD TODAY. IS THAT THOSE THAT ARE WATCHING

[00:10:04]

CAN ALSO FLIP THROUGH WHAT YOU JUST HANDED US BECAUSE IT IS BEAUTIFULLY DONE AND

CONGRATULATIONS. >> THANK YOU. THANK YOU VERY MUCH.

CONGRATULATIONS TO YOU TOO. YOU GUYS CREATED THE MONSTER. >> THANK YOU.

THANK YOU VERY MUCH. >> THE OTHER THING I WANTED TO STATE IT'S ON OUR WEBSITE SO

THEY CAN FIND IT THERE, TOO. >> WILL YOU DO ME A FAVOR? OUR LAST SPEAKER IN THIS SEGMENT

IS MISS BRITTANY COSTANO. >> GOOD MORNING, COMMISSIONERS FOR THIS MORNING.

I'VE BEEN UP HERE SEVERAL TIMES TO TALK ABOUT THE EXPERIENCES I'VE HAD WITH THE DIFFICULTIES IN GETTING SOME RESOLUTIONS FOR MY STALKER. I HAD A VERY ALARMING WEEKEND AND I WANTED YOU GUYS TO GHARS THAT EXPERIENCE WAS LIKE. ON SATURDAY ACTUALLY ON SUNDAY MORNING AT 12:0 5:00 A.M. I HAD BEEN HOME FOR 20 MINUTES FOR SPENDING TIME WITH MY BROTHER WHO IS GETTING READY TO MOVE. 12:05 I GET A TEXT MESSAGE ALERT TELLING ME MY ATTACKER CUT OFF HIS ANKLE MONITOR AND HAD BEEN ON THE LOOSE FOREIGN UNDETERMINED AMOUNT OF TIME.

I CALL 911. IT TOOK 25 MINUTES TO AGAIN THE OFFICERTO MY HOUSE IN KYLE.

WHEN I CALLED 911 PATROL HAD NOT EVEN BEEN INFORMED THIS MAN WAS OUT ON THE LOOSE.

I CALLED WILLIAMSTON COUNTY WHERE HE'S SUPPOSED TO BE UNDER SISP PAROLE WHICH IS THE MOST STRINGENT PAROLE AVAILABLE IN TEXAS. I ALSO HAVE TO TO SAY I HAD TO FIGHT TOOTH AND NAIL BECAUSE FIRST TEXAS TOLD ME THEY WERE GOING TO MONITOR HIM AND REMEMBER THAT WAS AN ERRONEOUS NOTIFICATION THAT CAME TO MYSELF AND THOUSANDS OF OTHER VICTIMS. THEY WERE NOT GOING TO MONITOR. THOSE ELECTRONIC MONITORS HAVE NO DPS CHIPS SO I HAD TO FIGHT TOOTH AND NAIL TO GET HIM ON THE ONE HE HAD, AND IT STILL TOOK THREE HOURS AND 46 MINUTES AFTER THAT ANKLE MONITOR WAS CUT BEFORE ANYONE TOLD ME. AT 8:19 P.M. HE CUT THE ANKLE MONITOR. AT 8:30 HIS PAROLE OFFICER WAS INFORMED BECAUSE THOSE ARE SENT IN 15 MINUTE BATCHES. I SHOULD HAVE KNOWN AT 8:45. BECAUSE AS I'M TOLD BY THE DEPUTY OR AT VICTIMS SERVICES DEPARTMENT, SHE TOLD ME IT WAS DOWN FOR, QUOTE, ROUTE TEEN MAINTENANCE AND THE SERVER THAT TAKES CARE OF THAT SYSTEM SHOULD HAVE BEEN INFORMED EVERYONE SO THAT WE HAD A BACK PLAN. I CALLED THE COMMAND CENTER YESTERDAY AND I SPOKE WITH MR. PRESTON MYSELF AND THEY DID KNOW THAT THAT SYSTEM WAS GOING TO BE DOWN.

THREE HOURS HE WAS ON THE LOOSE. YOU TELL ME IF HE'S FACING HIS THIRD FELONY IN THE THIRD DEGREE, WHICH WE ALL KNOW WHAT THAT MEANS IN TEXAS THROW STRIKES RIGHT? IF HE TOOK THAT RISK OF CUTTING THAT MONITOR IT WAS FOR TWO REASONS, TO FINISH WHAT HE STARTED OR RUN AND HE DIDN'T RUN. NOW WHERE HE LIVES IS 47 MINUTES FROM MY CURRENT ADDRESS, THE SAME ADDRESS THAT THE JAIL HERE IN HAYS COUNTY GAVE HIM THAT WAS SEALED BY JUDGE CABLE. AND UNFORTUNATELY, THAT INFORMATION IS EXPOSED.

SO 47 MINUTES AFTER HE CUT THAT, HE WAS PROBABLY IN MY DRIVEWAY. THANK GOD I WAS WITH MY BROTHER.

BUT AT 12:46 IN THE MORNING, I'M LITERALLY FLYING DOWN THE HIGHWAY WITH MY FAMILY, MY DISABLED MOM I HAD TO PACK UP IN THE MIDDLE OF THE MY ANIMALS AND BOLT.

I CAN'T GET ANY ANSWERS FOR HOURS. FINALLY AT NOON HE WAS APPREHENDED. I'VE BEEN CALLING EVER SINCE TO GET ANSWERS.

I DON'T KNOW HOW HE WAS APPREHENDED UNDER WHAT CIRCUMSTANCES, AND I MEAN, AT THIS POINT THIS IS A DELIBERATE DIFFERENCE AND THIS IS THE STATE OF DANGER THAT TEXAS IS PUTTING ALL OF US IN. I CAN'T UNDERSTAND HOW IT CAN POSSIBLY BE ACCEPTABLE.

I HOPE YOU GUYS CAN DO SOMETHING TO CLOSE THESE GAPS. >> THANK YOU, MA'AM.

I TOOK A LOT OF NOTES ABOUT THIS AND BE COMMUNICATING WITH SOME OF THE DEPARTMENTS YOU DESCRIBED. THANK YOU, MA'AM. PLEASE OPEN AGENDA ITEM NUMBER

SECTION. >> SECOND. >> WE HAVE A MOTION AND A SECOND AND WE HAVE ONE PERSON SIGNED UP TO SPEAK. MR. DAN LYON.

>> THANKS VERY MUCH JUDGE BECERRA. I DON'T HAVE ANY -- SECTION 264.2084. I DON'T KNOW IF THAT EXEMPTS PEOPLE THAT RECEIVE CAMPAIGN RECEIVE CAMPAIGN DISTRIBUTIONS FROM VARIOUS CORPORATIONS IT. EXEMPTS THEM AND ALLOWS THEM TO VOTE TO HAVE TO DO WITH THE SAME CORPORATION. AND AND ACCORDING TO TO THE SAN MARCOS DAILY RECORD COMMISSIONER SHELL RECEIVED LIKE CAMPAIGN CONTRIBUTIONS FOR HMTV.

WE SHOULD RECUSE THEMSELVES ON VOTING FOR ANYTHING TO DO WITH HMTV AS WELL AS ANYONE ELSE WHO

[00:20:07]

HAS RECEIVED MONEY HMTV. SHORT AND SWEET. THAT IS IT.

THANK YOU. >> THANK YOU, SIR. >> THANK YOU, JUDGE.

I THINK WE DISCUSSED THIS A COUPLE OF WEEKS AGO. SOME OF OUR OTHER PROGRAMS OF THE THE 2016 PROGRAM. I KNOW COMMISSIONER JONES MENTIONED THIS WOULD BE A SHORT EXEMPTION AND WE WOULD START A PROCESS TO CARRY ON THE REMINDER OF THE PROGRAM.

THIS IS THROUGH MARCH 31ST OF 2021. WE PROBABLY WANT TO GET STARTED

FAIRLY QUICKLY WITH THE DJTS DOCUMENTS READY TO GO OUT. >> THAT COVERED IT.

>> THAT COVERED IT. >> OKAY. -- DOCUMENTS.

I KNOW MR. WEAVER IS HERE. DO WE NEED HIM TO ASK TO SPEAK ON ANYTHING IF THERE ARE NO

QUESTIONS MRS. INGALSBE? >> I THINK IT'S GOOD. IF YOU CAN EXPLAIN THE EXE

EXEMPTION. >> YES. IT ALLOWS AN EXEMPTION FOR COMPETITIVE BID. WITH A COMPETITIVE BID WE WOULD LOOK FOR THE LOWEST AND THE BEST WE WOULD ZBOSHT THE PRICING SO THE LOCAL GOVERNMENT DOES ALLOW AN EXEMPTION FOR PROFESSIONAL

SERVICES WHERE WE'RE LOOKING AT THE LOWEST PRICE. >> WE'RE SEEKING AN EXEMPTION BECAUSE IT'S SHORT-TERM AND IT'S TAKEN THAT LONG TO DONE RFQ IN THE FIRMS, AND BY THE TIME THEY

GOT IN THE GROUND IT WOULDN'T BE EFFECTIVE FOR THE COUNTY. >> EXACTLY.

SERIOUSLY HAVE SOME THROUGH CHARGES AND PROJECT. >> I'LL JUST ADD THAT ENGINEERING SERVICES ARE ACTUALLY THE GOVERNMENT CODE CHAPTER 2254.

BUT SINCE THIS CONTRACT INCLUDES WORK THAT IS OTHER THAN PURE ENGINEERING, WE THINK IT'S PROBABLY A GOOD IDEA TO APPLY THE EXEMPTION AS WELL. SO THAT'S JUST A MEASURE.

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

AND I JUMPED TO THE AGENDA ITEM BECAUSE I KNOW THERE ARE PEOPLE HERE WITH IT AND MY GOAL IS TO DO A SEQUENCE THAT WILL FACILITATE MOVEMENT OF PEOPLE THROUGH OUR COURTROOM.

I WOULD LIKES IT CALL UP MRS. ANDERSON IF SHE DOESN'T MIND APPROACHING THE PODIUM,

STATING HER NAME FOR THE RECORD AND GIVING US AN UPDATE. >> GOOD MORNING.

IT'S GOOD TO SEE EVERYBODY THIS MORNING. MY NAME IS JENNIFER ANDERSON HAYS COUNTY ELECTION ADMINISTRATOR. AND I PASSED OUT TO YOU THIS MORNING THE CANVASS FOR THE COUNTY ELECTION SEATS THAT WOULD BE JUST FOR THE COUNTY OFFICES AND PRECINCT OFFICES AND BOND ELECTION. AND IN THE PAST WE HAVE PAST THIS CANVASS -- PASSED THIS CANVASS AS PRESENTEDS BUT I'LL DO IT HOWEVER Y'ALL LIKE THIS MORNING. LET ME GO OVER A FEW FACTULE POINTS FOR THE ELECTION.

-- FACTUAL. THIS WAS AN HISTORICAL ELECTION FOR HAYS COUNTY.

WE HAD 73.3% OF OUR REGISTERED VOTERS VOTE FOR A TOTAL OF 109,107 VOTERS, WHICH IS PHENOMENAL AND MOST OF THOSE VOTED EARLY IN VOTING ALMOST 100,000 VOTED IN EARLY VOTING.

SO THAT THREE-WEEK EARLY VOTING PERIOD WAS VERY PRODUCTIVE. PEOPLE DID TAKE ADVANTAGE OF IT AND WE DID SEE A LOT OF ACTIVITY. WE VOTED 12,548 BY MASMT WE VOTED 683 LIMITED BALLOTS -- BY MAIL. WE HAD TWO EMERGENCY BALLOTS, WHICH WE DON'T TYPICALLY HAVE HERE IN HAYS COUNTY BUT THOSE ARE BALLOTS THAT ALLOWS ARE IN HOSPITALS OR WON'T BE ABLE TO GET BACK IN THE COUNTY OR OUT OF THE HOSPITAL IN TIME TO VOTE WITH THE DOCTOR'S PERMISSION. SO WE HAD TWO OF THOSE. AND IF WE HAD 2,113 PROVISIONAL

[00:25:06]

BALLOTS, OF WHICH 434 OF THOSE WERE ACCEPTED. AND WITH THOSE WE PRODUCED THESE

RESULTS FOR YOU TO CANVASS TODAY. >> COMMISSIONERS?

COMMENTS OR QUESTIONS FOR MISS ANDERSON. >> SO JENNIFER, THE BALLOT BY MAIL, THE 12,548 BALLOTS BY MAIL. HOW DOES THAT COMPARE WITH

PREVIOUS YEARS, SAY 2018? >> THAT'S MORE THAN TWICE WHAT WE WOULD NORMALLY HAVE.

AND I DON'T REMEMBER IF YOU REMEMBER MY PRESENTATION. WE PREDICTED WE WOULD HAVE ROUGHLY 10,000 PRECOVID. WE COULD HAVE HAD 26,000, IF EVERYBODY OVER 65 VOTED.

WE DID HAVE A LOT OF CANCELATIONS IN THE POLLING LOCATION WHERE PEOPLE BROUGHT THEIR BALLOTS AND THEN VOTED. AND MOST OF THE 434 PROVISIONALS THAT WERE COUNTED WERE PEOPLE WHO HAD APPLIED FOR A MAIL BALLOT, BUT DIDN'T BRING IT BACK TO THE POLLING LOCATION, SO THEY VOTED PROVISIONALLY. WHEN WE DIDN'T RECEIVE THE MAIL BALLOT THAT WAS COUNTED.

>> COMMISSIONER? >> I JUST WANT TO COMPLIMENT MISS ANDERSON AND HER STAFF.

I THINK WE WERE THE FIRST COUNTY IN THE NATION TO EARLY VOTING OUT -- OUR TOTAL FROM 2016.

AND OTHER THAN DAY ONE WHEN WE HAD THESE RECORD NUNDZ, THERE WASN'T A LINE -- IT WORKED VERY SMOOTHLY. EVEN DAY ONE. -- RECORD NUMBERS.

WE HAD COMPLAINTS OF PEOPLE STANDING IN LINE THREE OR FOUR HOURS.

Y'ALL WERE WELL PREPARED AND DID A GREAT JOB. >> THANK YOU.

A SIDE NOTE THOSE LINES STARTED LONG BEFORE THE POLLS OPENED. >> YES.

>> I'D ALSO LIKE TO THANK OUR ELECTIONS OFFICE AND I.T. OFFICE WERE INSTRUMENTAL IF THIS AS WELL THEY WORKED DAY AND NIGHT. I THOUGHT IT WAS A VERY SMOOTH ELECTION ESPECIALLY FOR THE NUMBER OF VOTERS WE HAD AND POLLING PLACES WERE RUN EXCEPTIONALLY WELL.

VERY PLEASED WITH EVERYTHING. >> LAST BUT NOT LEAST. >> I JUST WANT TO SAY THANK YOU TO MISS ANDERSON FOR HER FORESIGHT IN SEEING WHERE SOME ISSUES MAY ARISE: NOTHING MORE IMPORTANTLY THAN THE PRINTING OF BALLOTS. IF Y'ALL REMEMBER THE CONVERSATION EARLY EARLY YOUR THIS YEAR WHEN -- EARLIER THIS YEAR WHEN WE HAD A CONTRACT AND WORRIED THEY WEREN'T GOING TO BE ABLE TO PERFORM AND HER INSIGHT PAID OF TO.

THAT CONTRACTOR CHOSE TO GO ANOTHER DIRECTION. THAT CONTRACTOR HAD ISSUES THIS OTHER COUNTIES AND I APPRECIATE YOUR FORE SIGHT IN ENSURING THAT WE ACTUALLY HAD BALLOTS TO CAST

HERE, SO THANK YOU. >> AND I TOO SAT AT MANY SITES OBSERVING PEACEFULLY FROM A DISTANCE. THERE WAS A LOT OF MENTION IT A LOT OF SPACES AND OVERALL IN SUMMARY I WOULD AGREE THAT CONSIDERING EVERYTHING THAT WAS GOING ON IN OUR NATION AND IN OUR STATE AND LOCALLY, THE TENSIONS WERE HIGH AND I BELIEVE AND I HOPE THAT WE CAN ALL TURN A CORNER AS A COMMUNITY AND REMIND OURSELVES THAT WE'RE AMERICANS.

REMIND OURSELVES THAT WERE TEXANS AND REMIND OURSELVES THAT WE ARE NEIGHBORS AND DO OUR VERY BEST FOR THE COMMUNITY WE'RE CHARGED TO SERVE. MISS ANDERSON WITH THAT SAID I ALSO THINK THAT BECAUSE YOU KNOW I WAS VERY VIGILANT AND I WILL NEVER STOP, AND I HAVE NO COMPLAINTS OVERALL FOR THE WORK THAT YOUR DEPARTMENT DID AND I WANT TO THANK YOU FOR THAT.

>> THANK YOU. >> SO IF NOTHING ELSE --. >> JUST ONE SECOND.

I THANK ALL THE CANDIDATES THAT WON, WHETHER YOU WON OR LOST YOU PUT YOURSELF OUT THERE.

WHEN YOU'RE CAMPAIGNING IT CAN TOTALLY CONSUMES YOU, SO I APPRECIATE EVERYBODY THAT TOOK

PART IN THIS PROCESS. CONGRATULATE THE WINERS. >> ABSOLUTELY RIGHT.

I DON'T WANT TO CUT ANYBODY OFF. WAS THERE SOMETHING ELSE YOU WANT TO SAY COMMISSIONER?

>> SINCE I DIDN'T TAKE THE OPPORTUNITY TO THANK YOU JENNIFER THANK YOU FOR ALL THE WORK YOU AND YOUR STAFF DID, AND JEFF MCGILL, THANKS. I KNOW THAT HE'S BEEN VERY INVOLVED IN ELECTIONS FOR QUITE SOMETIME, AND HE'S A VITAL PART THAT PROCESS.

>> HE DOES SUCH A GOOD JOB WE FORGET ABOUT HIM SOMETIMES. >> BEFORE Y'ALL VOTE SINCE EVERYBODY IS THANKING EVERYBODY I'D LIKE TO THANK A FEW MINUTES BEHIND THE SCENES THAT PEOPLE REALLY DON'T REALIZE PLAY A BIG ROLE IN ELECTIONS. IN THIS ELECTION EVERY COUNTY DEPARTMENT PLAYED SOME SORT OF ROLE. IF IT USING JUF HILL HALL FOR BALLOT MEETINGS FOR TAMMY'S THING UP TABLES AND MAKING SURE WE WERE THERE EVERY TIME WE NEEDED THEM AND PUTTING THEM AWAY. JEFF OBVIOUSLY IS SOMEBODY I COULDN'T THANK ENOUGH FOR EVERYTHING HE DOES. KIM DID A LOT OF WORK WITH OUTREACH WITH THE EARLY VOTING AND HELPED US TO CORRECT MISINFORMATION THROUGHOUT THE ELECTION. THE ROAD DEPARTMENT DELIVERS EQUIPMENT AND PICKS IT UP.

THEY ARE VERY UNSUNG HEROES OF THE ELECTION PROCESS, BECAUSE THEY NEVER KNOW WHAT THEY ARE

[00:30:02]

GOING TO FIND THE NEXT MORNING WHEN THEY GO TO PICK UP ELECTION EQUIPMENT.

OF COURSE, OUR JURISDICTIONS THAT PROVIDED THE LOCATIONS FOR AN EXTRA ENTIRE WEEK OF EARLY VOTING, AND ALL OF THEY WENT THROUGH WITH SIGNS AND VETTING AND JUST THE NUMBER OF PEOPLE THAT PASSED THROUGH DURING THE PANDEMIC. SO I HOPE I DIDN'T LEAVE ANYBODY OUT. ALL THE CANDIDATES, THANK YOU EVERYBODY FOR MAKING THIS ELECTIONS SUCCESSFUL. OF COURSE, GENERAL COUNCIL'S OFFICE BECAUSE WE DID SOME THINGS AI DON'T THINK ARE PRETTY UNPRECEDENTED IN TERMS OF GOING BEFORE A JUDGE TO OVERTURN SOME SIGNATURE MISMATCHES. SO THAT'S NOT SOMETHING WIDELY DONE IN TEXAS, BUT WE DID IT THIS YEAR AND I DID IT WITH THEIR HELP. I HOPE I LEFT ANYBODY OFF FOR REAL. THE AUDITOR'S OFFICE IS HELPFUL, EVERYBODY.

>> AMARIS: THANK YOU, MISS ANDERSON. OF OUR SITTING COUNTY JUDGE OF HAYS COUNTY I WOULD LIKE TO LEAD THE KNACK UNIFYING US IN WHATEVER -- PACK IN UNIFYING NEWS WHATEVER WAY POSSIBLE FOR OUR COMMUNITY TO COME TOGETHER AS A COUNTY OF, BY AND FOR THE PEOPLE. SO THANK YOU VERY MUCH. WE HAVE A MOTION AND A SECOND FOR CANVASSING THE ELECTION AND IF THERE ARE NO FURTHER COMMENTS, DR. CARDENAS, WILL YOU

>> THANK YOU VERY MUCH, JUDGE BECERRA. THIS IS ONE OF MY FAVORITE TOPICS, HOGS. I PROBABLY TAKE OUT ABOUT 40 HOGS IF THE PAST FEW YEARS.

AND, YOU KNOW, $5 HOGS WOULD NOT BE THAT MUCH. $200 BUCKS IS A CONSIDERABLE AMOUNT IT PAY. BUT ANYWAY. SO FAR, I'VE NOT RECEIVED ANY INFORMATION ON HOW MUCH IT COSTS TO REMOVE A HOG FROM HAYS COUNTY.

ALTHOUGH I ASKED THIS OVER A MONTH AGO. I'M STILL WILLING TO BET IT'S MORE THAN $2.50 PER HOG WHICH WAS HOW MUCH THE COUNTY WAS PAYING UNDER THE OLD PROGRAM.

>> YOU INDICATED AT THE TIME JUDGE BECERRA THAT YOU WOULD HAVE LIKED TO KNOW COSTS PER HOG TO REMOVE HOGS UNDER THIS NEW PROGRAM. AND I STILL DO NOT UNDERSTAND WHY WE CAN'T GO BACK TO THE OLD PROGRAM, BECAUSE IT WAS A LOT CHEAPER.

COMMISSIONER JONES ADMITTED WE PROBABLY ONLY HAVE 100 TAILS TURNED IN.

THAT WAS BECAUSE NOBODY CAN FIND OUT WHERE THEY WERE SUPPOSED TO TURN THEM IN.

I TRIED AND TRIED TO FIND OUT. THEY FINALLY GAVE ME A NUMBER TO CALL.

I CALLED THE NUMBER REPEATEDLY AND IT JUST RANG AND RANG AND RANG AND RANG.

NOBODY EVER ANSWERED. FINALLY I GAVE UP WHICH I THINK THEY WANTED ME TO DO IN THE FIRST PLACE. I FOUND OUT LATER AFTER THE PROGRAM WAS ENDED THAT WHERE WE HAD, YOU KNOW, I DON'T WANT TO USE THE WORD DEMOCRACY OF HUNTERS WHERE EVERYBODY GOT TO PARTICIPATE AND WENT TO THIS EXCLUSIVELY ONE CORPORATION THAT MAKES ALL THE MONEY AND SHOOTS OUT COPTERS WHICH IS EXTREMELY DANGEROUS. BUT ANYWAY.

I FOUND -- HELICOPTERS. I FOUND OUT THAT AFTER THE PROGRAM ENDED IT WAS ON EVERY I THINK SATURDAY, EVERY TWO WEEKS OVER AT THE AG EXTENSION OFFICE. I THINK THAT'S ON BREAK BARKER OR SOMEWHERE OVER THERE WHERE I NEVER GO ANYWAY. YOU KNOW.

IF YOU DIDN'T HIDE THE PLACE YOU TURN THE TAILS IN YOU MIGHT GET A LOT MORE TAILS BUT INSTEAD YOU DECLARED THAT PROGRAM A FAILURE, AND NOW WE'RE SPENDING HUGE AMOUNTS OF MONEY FOR A VERY DANGEROUS PROGRAM. Y'ALL STILL WON'T TELL ME HOW MUCH WE'RE A HOG.

THANK YOU VERY MUCH. >> THANK YOU VERY MUCH. I'D LIKE TO START WITH I KNOW IS NOT A SPACE FOR BACK AND FORTH, BUT MR. DAN LYON HAS CONVEYED ACCURATELY THAT I AM GENUINELY

[00:40:05]

CONCERNED AND INTERESTED IN WHAT IT COSTS OUR COUNTY PER HOG, AND I WOULD LIKE TO ASK MISS CRUMLEY IF SHE FEELS MOST QUALIFIED TO ANSWER THAT QUESTION BECAUSE I DON'T WANT TO CATCH ANYONE ON THE SPOT OR FLATFOOTED, BUT I WOULD LIKE TO HAVE AT LEAST A MOMENT OF CONVERSATION AROUND

THAT ITEM. >> I CANNOT ANSWER THAT QUESTION.

>> OK. >> I HAVE TO GATHER THAT FROM THE AGRILIFE EXTENSION OFFICE

AND/OR THE USDA. >> OK. DO WE HAVE THE HISTORICAL NUMBERS? MAYBE THIS IS FOR MARISOL OF WHAT THE PROGRAM COSTS US OF THE TAILS MR. LYON WAS DESCRIBING. IT DOESN'T SOUND LIKE THAT MUCH AN.

IF IT'S NOT I'M WONDERING IF WE CAN COMBINE THING PIGS OUT OF HELICOPTERS AND THE PROGRAM THE TAILS TURNED IN IN PARALLEL IF NOTHING ELSE. I THINK IT'S A GREAT IDEA MR. LYON IS PRESENTING AND I'D LIKE TO AT LEAST GIVE HIM A MINUTE OF CONSIDERATION.

>> THE COUNTY HAS NOT EXTENDED ANY FUNDS. THESE PROGRAMS HAVE ALWAYS BEEN COVERED WITH GRANT FUNDING. WE WOULD HAVE TO DO THE SAME THING.

WE WOULD HAVE TO GO BACK THROUGH THE YEARS AND GATHER THAT FINANCIAL INFORMATION AND WE

COULD POTENTIALLY PRESENT THAT TO COURT NEXT WEEK. >> I BELIEVE THE FUNDS ARE WHEN WE'RE DOING THE PROGRAM, THOSE WERE NOT DISMISSED BY THE COUNTY.

THEY WERE DISMISSED BY THE -- >> YES. >> WAS I BELIEVE NICK -- THAT

WAS -- IT WAS A PARTNERSHIP OF CALDWELL COUNTY AS WELL. >> THE FUNDS EXTENDED TODAY GO TOWARDS THAT PARTNERSHIP. WE DON'T THESE DECISIONS. IT'S THAT GROUP THAT DECIDES THEY DECIDE THAT IN CALDWELL COUNTY THEY HAD A GOOD TURNOUT. HAYS COUNTY WE DIDN'T.

MAYBE WE DIDN'T ADVERTISE IT WELL ENOUGH BUT THEY FELT HAD HAYS COUNTY TRAPS WERE BETTER

USE OF THOSE. >> COMMISSIONER, I REMEMBER YOU SAYING THAT LAST TIME AND I DO APPRECIATE YOU REPEATING IT BUT I WOULD LIKE TO HUMOR OUR COMMUNITY ON THIS FRONT.

AND IF THERE IS SOMETHING THAT WE COULD SUMMARIZE AND MY OFFICE COULD HELP, WITH BECAUSE IT IS -- IT'S CLEARLY IMPORTANT AND IT IS SOMETHING THAT IF WE COULD LEAN IF ON AND SOME KIND OF WAY, AND I UNDERSTAND AND AGREE. THESE ARE GRANT FUNDS. NEVERTHELESS.

IF THERE'S SOMETHING WE CAN DO TO AMPLIFY OR ARTICULATE OR HIGHLIGHT.

I WOULD LOVE A PRESENTATION ON IT IF WE CAN. BECAUSE MR. LYON IS ONE THAT HAS ALLOWED HIMSELF THE TIME TO BE HERE BUT WE DON'T KNOW HOW MANY ARE JUST LIKE HIM IN THE

COMMUNITY THAT WANT IT THE SAME SO I REALLY APPRECIATE. >> WE CAN HAVE HIM COME AND DO A PRESENTATION ALSO. SOMETIMES WE GIVE OUT THAT -- WE HAVE A TRAP THAT'S DONE ELECTRONIC. WE DON'T KNOW HOW WELL WE'RE DOCUMENTING.

IT'S INDIVIDUAL LANDOWNERS. I DON'T KNOW THE NUMBER THEY KILLED.

IN ONE TRAP THEY MIGHT GET 20 OR 30 IN ONE NIGHT. WE DON'T KNOW HOW WELL THEY ARE

REPORTING THE NUMBERS. >> THE OTHER THING I WOULD SAY WHEN WE LOOK AT IT THE COST OF THAT PROGRAM AT THAT POINT TWO THINGS SINCE IT IS A GRANT PROGRAM, THE GRANT APPLICATION AS WRITTEN DICTATES HOW WE SPEND THAT MONEY. IN OTHER WORDS WHEN YOU APPLY FOR THE GRANT ITSELF AND FORGIVE ME IF I'M WRONG HERE COMMISSIONER JONES, BUT I BELIEVE THAT IF WE GO BACK THROUGH WHEN WE ADOPTED THAT GRANT THERE WAS VERBIAGE IN THERE SAYING HOW WE WOULD USE THE MONEY. THE OTHER THING I WOULD SAY EVEN IF WE, YOU KNOW, IT WAS VERY INEXPENSIVE PER HOG. AT THE END OF THE DAY WE DIDN'T SPEND MONEY OUT OF THAT. WE DIDN'T SPEND THE MONEY BECAUSE AT $250 A HOG WE DIDN'T HAVE THE VOLUME OF HOGS KILLED. THAT WOULD HAVE AN IMPACT. IF WE DID I WOULD BE SHOCKED.

ACTUALLY I KNOW MUCH TO MR. LYON'S CHAGRIN I SHOT A PIG OUT OF A HELICOPTER.

IT WASN'T ALL THAT DANGEROUS BUT IN THOSE TYPE OF OPERATIONS THEY ARE KILLING VOLUMES OF HOGS.

NOT ONE OR TWO TO BE TURNED IN BUT LITERALLY 40, 50, DOZENS OF HOGS AT A TIME.

SO JUST THE SHEER VOLUME OF THE IMPACT WE'RE SEEING AT THAT COUNTY I APPRECIATE IF THE

SCIENTISTS CAME UP WITH A WAY TO DO IT. >> THAT'S WONDERFUL.

IF THE FLUSHTIONS WE'LL FIND OUT IN NEXT WEEK'S PRESENTATION -- IF THE NUMBERS ARE, WE'LL FIND THE IN NEXT WEEK'S PRESENTATION. MAYBE THERE'S AN OPTION TO USE SOME OF OUR COUNTY RESOURCES IN SOME ULTRALOW DOLLAR AMOUNT AS IT MAY BE TO ALLOW THAT SPACE FOR OUR COMMUNITY TO CONTINUE TO PROGRAM THAT THEY FEEL COULD BE USEFUL FOR A PARALLEL POTENTIAL. I GUESS WE'LL KNOW MORE NEXT

WEEK AND THANK YOU VERY MUCH. >> PRESENTATION BEFORE THE END OF THE YEAR.

>> THANK YOU SIR. WHATEVER I CAN DO TO HELP IN ANY KIND OF WAY PLEASE LET ME KNOW

[00:45:03]

BECAUSE IT'S IMPORTANT TO PEOPLE AND I WANT TO DO WHAT I CAN TO SUPPORT IT.

SO WE HAVE A MOTION AND A SECOND AND DO WE HAVE ANY ADDITIONAL COMMENTS ON AGENDA ITEM NUMBER

15? PLEASE CALL THE ROLL. >> COMMISSIONER INGALSBE.

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

WILL YOU PLEASE OPEN NUMBER 37. >> 37, DISCUSSION AND POSSIBLE ACTION TO AUTHORIZE THE COUNTY EXECUTE CONTRACT AMENDMENT NUMBER ONE TO A CONTRACT BETWEEN HAYS COUNTY AND DANNENBAUM ENGINEERING COMPANY AUSTIN, LLC FOR THE POSY ROAD CORRIDOR IMPROVEMENTS SAFETY AND MOBILITY

PROJECT AS PART OF THE 206 ROD BOND PROGRAM. >> SO MOVED.

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

>> COMMISSIONER SHELL -- ROAD BOND PROGRAM. >> THANK YOU.

THIS IS A PROJECT BETWEEN HUNTER ROAD AND I-35. HE'S BEEN WORKING ON THIS PROJECT FOR SEVERAL YEARS NOW. AS MOST PEOPLE IN THAT AREA THE POSY ROAD OVERPASS WILL BE COMPLETE SOON ON 35. MOST OF THE TRUCK TRAFFIC COMING SOUTH WILL BE USING POSY ROAD, SO WE WANT TO GET SOME PLANS IN PLACE TO HANDLE THE INCREASE IN TRUST TRAFFIC.

>> COMMISSIONERS, COMMENTS? I LIVE IN THE AREA. I'M A PRECINCT THREE RESIDENT AND I WILL TELL YOU I'M GRATEFUL TO SEE ALL THE MOVEMENT. IF THERE ARE NO OTHER COMMENTS

PLEASE CALL THE ROLL. >> COMMISSIONER JONES. >> YES.

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

>> YES. >> COMMISSIONER INGALSBE. >> YES.

>> AND JUDGE BECERRA. >> YES. I SEE OUR CONTABLE HERE -- CONSTABLE HERE. IS THERE AN AGENDA ITEM YOU'RE HERE FOR? 48. YOU GOT IT. 48.

[48. Discussion and possible action regarding the installation of a security camera system at the Hays County Historic Courthouse. INGALSBE]

PLEASE OPEN AGENDA NUMBER 48. >> DISCUSSION AND POSSIBLE ACTION REGARDING THE INSTALLATION OF A SECURITY CAMERA SYSTEM AT THE HAYS COUNTY HISTORIC COURTHOUSE.

>> SORRY CAN WE GET A SNEETION SO MOVED. >> SECOND.

>> SORRY, I FORGOT. -- MOTION. >> THIS IS SOMETHING WE DISCUSSED PREVIOUSLY. I WANTED TO ASK JEFF MCGILL IF HE COULD COME UP AND GIVE US SOME SUGGESTIONS JEFF OF WHAT YOU THINK MIGHT WORK FOR OUR COURTHOUSE AS IT RELATES TO

SECURITY. >> GOOD MORNING. WINCE WE'VE SEEN YOU LAST.

>> I'VE BEEN HIDING IN A HOLE. ACTUALLY WE HAVE BEEN DISCUSSING THE CAMERA SECURITY SYSTEM FOR THE COURTHOUSE. IT'S BEEN A COUPLE OF MONTHS. ACTUALLY CONSTABLE'S OFFICE DID MOST OF THE HEAVY LIFTING ON SPEAKING WITH THE VENDORS. I WAS INVITED TO A COUPLE OF ZOOM MEETINGS WITH SOME VENDORS. BUT MY SUGGESTION THAT WE WOULD JUST PICK A SCOPE OF WHAT WE'RE LOOKING AT DOING MANY THE COURTHOUSE, WHETHER IT'S SECURITY CAMERA SYSTEMS OR ACCESS CONTROL, AND JUST GET THOSE INSPECTION -- SPECS WRITTEN UP AND GET SOME VENDORS TO BID ON IT. I KNOW THAT WE USE A LOT DIFFERENT VENDORS FOR OFFICES OUT IN THE PRECINCT OFFICE STAND-ALONE SYSTEMS. HERE WE HAVE THE JAIL ON A SECURITY SYSTEM. I THINK WE NEED DISCUSSION ON WHETHER THIS IS A STAND-ALONE SYSTEM OR PART OF THE BIGGER SECURITY SYSTEM IN SAN MARCOS AND A LITTLE MORE INFORMATION.

THEY DO MOST THE HEAVY LIFTING OF DEALING WITH THE VENDORS SO FAR UP TO THIS POINT.

>> MR. MCGILL I'D LIKE TO FIRST BEFORE I ASK PEOPLE AT PODIUM I'D LIKE IT ASK A QUESTION OF WHAT YOU MENTIONED SO FAR. THE PSB. WE HAVE OPPORTUNITIES WITH THE IMPROVEENTS AND ADDITIONS OF THE -- IN OUR COUNTY TO BE ON THE CUTTING EDGE WHAT IS UNDERSTANDING WHAT IS BEST AND MOST USEFUL IN OUR SPACES AS YOU DESCRIBED.

SO CAN YOU ARTICULATE THE DIFFERENCES, THE BENEFITS OF BEING PART OF, AS AN HISTORIC COUNTY COURTHOUSE, BEING A PART OF THE PSB SECURITY NETWORK. COMPARED TO VERSUS A STAND

ALONE. >> IT ALL GOES BACK IT WHO IS GOING TO BE IN CHARGE OF THE SECURITY OF THE COURTHOUSE. RIGHT NOW WE HAVE THE PSB IN THE JAIL.

WE HAVE ACCESS CONTROL OF THE SHERIFFS AND MANAGER'S OFFICE AND SECURITY AND MONITORING OF

[00:50:06]

THE CAMERAS. IF THE COURTHOUSE WANTED TO BE PART OF THAT, THAT COULD JUST BE EXTENDED OUT. THAT CURRENT VENDOR. OR IT COULD BE A STAND-ALONE SYSTEM WITH THE SECURITY CONSTABLE'S OFFICE. I'LL START IT THIS WAY.

WOULD YOU TELL JUST IT WOULD BE BENEFICIAL TO BE A STAND-ALONE SUPERVISED CONSTABLE'S OFFICE COMPARED TO BEING IN THE SHERIFF'S OFFICE? I UNDERSTAND THERE'S TWO DIFFERENCES. CAN YOU TELL US WHY IT WOULD BE MOST BENEFICIAL TO BE STAND

ALONE. >> WELL I'M NOT SURE IF IT'S MORE BENEFICIAL TO BE STAND ALONE, BUT IF WE'RE TALKING ABOUT SECURITY AND ACCESS CONTROL, YOU HAVE A DIFFERENT GROUP OF PEOPLE WITH ACCESS TO THE COURTHOUSE THAN DO YOU MOST OF THE LAW ENFORCEMENT AND THE JAIL AND PUBLIC SAFETY. IF WE'RE GOING TO EXTEND IT OUT TO ACCESS CONTROL YOU END UP WITH A CENTRALIZED ACCESS CONTROL FOR THE COUNTY BUILDINGS AS FAR AS USING OUR EXISTING ACCESS CONTROL. I'M IN THE SURE IF WE'RE EVEN TALKING ABOUT DOING THAT FOR THE COURTHOUSE. IF WE'RE TALKING ABOUT EXTENDING IT OUT LIKE WE HAVE WITH THE GOVERNMENT CENTER AND THE JAIL, THEN HAVING A UNIFIED SYSTEM WOULD BE MORE BENEFICIAL AS FAR AS MAINTENANCE AND UP KEEP OUR NETWORK OF HAVING EVERYTHING TOGETHER.

IF IT'S JUST LIKE WE HAVE IN OUR PRECINCTS OFFICE THOSE AREN'T INTEGRATED THE PEOPLE IN THOSE BUILDINGS ARE CONCENTRATED IN THOSE BUILDINGS. IT DOESN'T CROSS THE STREET THAT

MUCH WITH THE REST OUR LAW ENFORCEMENT. >> THANK YOU FOR BRINGING UP THE KEY CARD PIECE BECAUSE THAT'S AN IMPORTANT CONSIDERATION FACTOR, AND I REALLY APPRECIATE YOU ANSWERING THOSE QUESTIONS. COMMISSIONER INGALSBE, DO YOU HAVE QUESTIONS FOR MR. MCGILL.

BEFORE WE GO ON TO OUR CONSTABLE'S OFFICE. >> RIGHT.

AND SO JEFF, I WANT COST OF A SERVICE THAT IS THIS IMPORTANT TO BE A FACTOR.

CAN YOU KIND OF JUST TALK A LITTLE BIT ABOUT WHAT COSTS MIGHT BE INVOLVED IF WE WENT TO

THE INTEGRATED SYSTEM, COMPARED TO A STAND ALONE? >> WITHOUT GOING AND LOOKING AT WHAT OUR PRICES WERE I CAN'T GET A GUESS OF IT. I KNOW THAT WE HAVE COSTS BASED ON PRECINCT OFFICES IT'S DEFINITELY A PIECE OF POSSIBLE DOORS.

I CAN'T TAKE BE EDUCATE GUESS. I CAN'T REMEMBER WHAT THE NUMBERS WERE.

>> THE STAND-ALONE SYSTEMS WE CURRENTLY HAVE ARE DIFFERENT CASES.

THOSE HAVE BEEN EFFECTIVE AND WORK WELL AND WHO MONITORS THOSE.

>> WE PROVIDE THE CONNECTIVITY. THEY HAVE THEIR OWN CAMERAS IN THE OFFICE.

AND WE DON'T DO REMOTE MONITORING OUTSIDE. >> JP.

>> OKAY. AND JUDGE WE DON'T 1R ENOUGH INFORMATION TO MOVE FORWARD AND THAT WE NEED TO GET DISCUSSION GOING. I THINK IT IS A BUILDING THAT HASN'T BEEN MONITORED, SECURITYWISE AND I KNOW THAT WE HAVE HAD A LOT OF ACTIVITY ON OUR GROUNDS AND CONTINUE TO, AND I KNOW THAT THERE HAVE BEEN SEVERAL INCIDENTS AND THE CONSTABLE SPEAK ABOUT THAT I THINK IT'S IMPORTANT WE TRY TO MOVE FORWARD WITH SOME OPTION

FOR THIS COURTHOUSE. >> THE BIG DECISION WHETHER WE WANT ACCESS CONTROL.

THAT WILL BE A BIG PART OF THE COST BECAUSE ALL THE DOORS WILL HAVE TO BE MODIFIED AND ACTUAL WORK DONE. CAMERA SYSTEM AND SECURITY SYSTEM.

WHEN WE GET INTO ACCESS CONTROL. >> WE GET INTO HISTORICAL ACCESS OF THE COURTHOUSE THE TYPES OF

DOORS THAT WE HAVE. >> HARDWARE AND NO IMPACT OVERALL.

[00:55:17]

>> DO WE HAVE A TIME IT SEE IF THE COMMISSIONER HAS QUESTIONS FOR MR. MCGILL PLEASE.

>> I GUESS THIS MIGHT BE FOR CONSTABLE PETERSON. THE BIGGEST IS THE GROUNDS

INSIDE. >> YEAH, WE HAVE HAD THOSE INCIDENTS.

>> QUESTION THIS TIME FOR MR. MCGILL BEFORE WE GO TO THE CONSTABLE'S OFFICE.

>> THANK YOU MR. MCGILL I APPRECIATE IT AND IF THE CONSTABLE'S OFFICE WOULD APPROACH THE PODIUM AND SHARE WITH US AND THEIR PERSPECTIVE AND FINDINGS.

>> COMMISSIONERS. THE CHIEF AND I WERE TALKING ABOUT THIS EARLIER.

COMMISSIONERS COURT SOMETIMES ON SECURITY THE OUTSIDE AND I GUESS THAT IT'S REALLY GOING TO DEPEND ON BASICALLY WHAT WE'RE GOING TO TALK ABOUT, THE EXCESS OF THE INSIDE OF THE BUILDING OR OUTSIDE THE BUILDING FOR CAMERAS. THAT IS PART OF THE COST THAT OF COURSE THE COUNTY IS GOING TO HAVE TO LOOKA. THE OUTSIDE AREA AS WE WELL KNOW THAT WE HAVE HAD 134 SOME PROBLEMS THAT WEAPONS, DRUGS PAIR IF A NAIL YEAH, ETC.

-- PARAPHERNALIA, ETC. I THINK IT'S IMPORTANT THAT WE DO GET SOMETHING FOR THE BUILDING BEING HISTORICAL. OF COURSE, WE HAVE TO BE CAREFUL WITH THE HISTORICAL AND DRILLING HOLES AND TAKING AND THIS SORT OF THING ALSO. IF WE CAN GET SOME TYPE OF SECURITY FOR INSIDE OR OUTSIDE IS GOING TO BENEFICIAL FOR OUR EMPLOYEES AND OUR CITIZENS.

FOR SECURITY. >> I HAVE A QUICK QUESTION ON THAT FRONT CONSTABLE AND THANK YOU FOR DOING THE WORK. YOUR OFFICE IS DONE. YOU AND CHIEF IS HERE AS WELL.

DO YOU SUGGEST THAT THE KEY CARD PIECE BE ADDED TO THIS BUILDING OR DO YOU THINK WE'RE OK WITHOUT

IT. >> I THINK IT ALL DEPENDS ON Y'ALL DECIDE TO GO ON.

WE HAVE SOME SECURITY FOR INSIDE OR OUTSIDE. I THINK THED IS VERY IMPORTANT.

THE ENTRY WAY COMING IN SHOWED A LOT OF WHAT HAPPENS ON THE INSIDE OF THE BUILDING.

THAT THE SIGN INSIDE SECURITY CAMERAS WOULD BE. >> OK.

I'M ONE OF THE ONES THIS IS A PERMANENT OFFICE AS COMMISSIONER INGALSBE, FOR EXAMPLE.

COMMISSIONER SHELL HAS A LOT OF BANDWIDTH IN THIS AS WELL. WE HAVE A LOT OF OFFICES WHERE WE RUN THEM OFF. I KNOW MY OFFICE SPECIFICALLY FOLKS IN MY OFFICE HAVE A SERIOUS CONCERN ABOUT SOME OF THE THINGS OUR STATE AND MARSHALS AUDIT HAS PROVIDED AS SUGGESTION THAT'S WE HAVE, AND I'M NOT BASHING ANYONE BUT WE'VE DONE NONE OF THEM.

I'M GLAD THIS IS HERE BEFORE US PERSONAL IT'S A GREAT THING TO BE TALKING ABOUT BASED ON THE INFORMATION AND CONVERSATIONS WE HAVE HAD SO FAR IN THE PAST AS WELL IN EXECUTIVE SESSION, I PINED IT LESS OF A CONCERN PERSONALLY IN ADDITION TO THE COST COMPONENT THAT'S ALWAYS -- ALTHOUGH YOU SAY IS NOT IMPORTANT I AGREE WITH YOU 100 37B9 -- 100% BUT THE COST THE KEY CARDS IS LESS IMPORTANT TO ME THAN A HOLISTIC CAMERA SYSTEM, SO AT LEAST WE COULD SEE ALL THE THINGS YOU LEFT OUT WITH PROPERTY, SUPPLIES, SIGNS AND EVERYTHING ELSE AND PARAPHERNALIA YOU'VE DESCRIBED. BUT THE COMINGS AND GOINGS OF PEOPLE, VETERANS OFFICE HAS ALSO CONVEYED CONCERNS AS WELL. SO GENERAL CAMERAS COVERING GENERAL OPEN SPACES OF OUR FLOORS, OUR HALLWAYS. IY THAT THAT'S A GOOD STRONG USE OF -- I THINK THAT'S A GOOD, STRONG USE OF FOCUS AND EFFORT. ALSO, WE HAVE ACCESS TO GRANT MONEY, AS WE USED TWO WEEKS AGO

[01:00:02]

FOR ANOTHER COURTROOM. SO WE HAVE GOOD OPTIONS AND WE'RE THANKFUL FOR THE PROFESSIONALISM AND EXPERTISE THEY CONVEY, BUT I WANT TO GIVE MY INITIAL PERSPECTIVE AS A CULMINATION OF THE OTHER PARTS THE KEY CARD PIECE IS NOT SO MUCH OF A CONCERN BUT THE CAMERA SYSTEM TO COVER THE ENTIRE FOOTPRINT BECAUSE AS WE'VE SEEN THROUGH ALL THE DIFFERENT THINGS GOING ON IN OUR COUNTRY, THIS IS THE SYMBOLIC CENTER OF GOVERNMENT, WHETHER THIS IS WHERE THE D.A. IS OR NOT. THIS IS PEOPLE THINK THE D.A. IS FOR EXAMPLE.

SO WHETHER THE MAYOR, HIS OFFICE OUT OF HERE OR NOT, THIS IS WHERE PEOPLE THINK THE MAYOR IS OFFICED OUT OF. I THINK TO TAKE THESE PRECAUTIONARY EFFORTS IS IMPORTANT SO I WILL PASS IT ON TO OUR COMMISSIONERS. I ALSO WANT IT TO TALK ABOUT KEEPING IT LOCAL THROUGH THE CONSTABLE'S OFFICE WHICH SEEMS TO BE A GOOD MODEL FROM OUR PRECINCT OFFICES. BUT MY ONLY QUESTION WILL BE SINCE YOUR OFFICE IS NOT HISTORICALLY AT 27, HOW WILL WE HANDLE ANY CONVERSATION ALONG THAT FRONT IF YOU CAN ADDRESS

THAT I'LL PASS IT OVER TO COMMISSIONER INGALSBE. >> WELL AS I SAID, JUDGE, ANY KIND OF CAMERA SYSTEM WOULD BE GOOD FOR THE COURTHOUSE. THE COURTHOUSE ITSELF, THE GROUNDS ITSELF. THERE'S A LOT OF PUBLIC PEOPLE THAT COMED USE THE OUTSIDE FOR WEDDINGS. THEY COME AND PICNIC ON OUR GROUNDS.

THERE'S PEOPLE THAT COME AND VISIT THE COURTHOUSE, WHETHER IT'S CLOSED OR IT'S OPEN.

THESE ARE SOME OF THE THINGS THAT I DO BELIEVE YOU AND THE COMMISSIONERS SHOULD LOOK AT AND

DEFINITELY BENEFIT OUR COURTHOUSE NEEDS. >> THANK YOU, SIR.

COMMISSIONER INGALSBE? >> SO I'M NOT SURE, CHIEF, IF IT WAS YOU OR CONSTABLE.

I KNOW THAT ONE OF Y'ALL OR MAYBE BOTH OF Y'ALL SPOKE TO THE HISTORICAL COMMISSION ON SOME OF THE ASPECTS OF INSTALLING A SECURITY SYSTEM. CAN YOU REMIND US WHAT SOME OF

THOSE DISCUSSIONS WERE? >> YEAH, CHIEF -- WE HAD LOOKED AT THE SYSTEMS ON THE INSIDE PERIMETER FOR CAMERAS. THE DOOR SYSTEMS. ALSO WOULD BENEFIT INSIDE AND OUTSIDE. STILL THAT GOES BAK TO BASICALLY WHAT Y'ALL ARE GOING TO BASICALLY AGREE ON UPON EITHER ONE OR BOTH WOULD BENEFIT I BELIEVE THE COURTHOUSE.

>> WE DID SPEAK TO THE COMMISSION ABOUT THE BUILDING AND EVERYTHING PREAPPROVED.

ANY PLANS WE HAVE AS FAR AS EQUIPMENT WE'RE USING. THINGS NEED TO BLEND INTO THE BUILDING. SO WE'LL DEFHAVE TO PRESENT SOMETHING TO THEM IN ORDER FOR

THEM TO APPROVE IT. >> DID Y'ALL GO INTO ANY KIND OF DETAILS LIKE WITH THE DOORS?

IF WE WERE TO CONSIDER DOING THE ACCESS THE KEY, ACCESS. >> THE ACCESS ON THE DOORS I BELIEVE JEFF HAD MENTIONED IT. USING AN ACCESS CARD TO ENTER INTO THE BUILDING.

THAT MEANS THAT BASICALLY, EVERYONE THAT'S AN EMPLOYEE HAS TO HAVE AN ACCESS CARD.

OF COURSE, YOU HAVE THE GENERAL PUBLIC COMING IN ALSO. AND THAT'S ONE OF THE THINGS WITH THIS TECHNOLOGY WITH WHAT WITH THE SHERIFF'S OFFICE HAS COMPARED TO THE COURT, IN AND OUT, IN AND OUT GOING TO MAKE A TOTAL DIFFERENCE. ONCE YOU ENTER IN FOR EMPLOYEES HAVE A CARD MAKES A TOTAL DIFFERENCE FOR WHAT YOU'RE GOING TO HAVE SPECIAL EVENTS THERE, THAT WILL BE GOING ON HERE. CHRISTMAS PROGRAMS THANKSGIVING PROGRAMS. SPECIAL SESSIONS FOR COURT. IT'S ALL GOING TO -- IF YOU CANVASS ON THE OUTSIDE YOU CAN

[01:05:07]

ENABLE TO MONITOR THE WITH THEIR OFFICE COMING IN OR THE WATCH. WHAT'S ON THE GROUND 24 HOURS.

THAT WAY YOU CAN LOOK AT IT BOTH WAYS. YOU KNOW JEFF WAS TALKING ABOUT THE SHERIFF'S OFFICE BLENDING IN WITH A COURTHOUSE. I DON'T KNOW EXACTLY WHAT THEY HAVE OVER THERE. IF THAT WORKS, SO THE 24-HOUR CLOCK ESPECIALLY ESPECIALLY ON THE OUTSIDE PERIMETER I THINK IT'S GOING TO BENEFIT THE COURTHOUSE THAT WE DID.

>> OK. SO I THINK YOU HEARD YOU SAY 245 YOU WOULD THEN HAVE THE

CAPABILITY OF MONITORING 24 HOURS A DAY. >> MORE LIKE THE GOVERNMENT CENTER. I DON'T WANT TO GO INTO SECURITY PROTOCOLS.

>> OK, YES. >> I THINK LIKE IN OUR BUILDING WE'RE DOING THE OUTSIDE.

THAT'S NOT MY GREATEST CONCERN TO MAKE SURE WE HAVE THE GROUNDS COVERED BUT IF WE DO CAMERAS INSIDE ARE WE DOING THE ENTRANCE THE ROTUNDA. WE'RE THE GOING INTO THE

INDIVIDUAL OFFICES. THAT'S NOT YOUR INTENT. >> IT WOULD BE AN ALL AROUND CAMERA SYSTEM, SO YOU'LL BE ABLE TO SEE ANYTHING FROM THE WALKWAY ALL THE WAY AROUND THE EXCESS AREA OF THE BUILDING SAY FOR INSTANCE IF A DROVE TRUCK DROVE ONTO THE LAWN YOU'LL BE ABLE TO SPOT THE VEHICLE LICENSE PLATE ON THE TRUCK THE COLOR OF THE TRUCK THE TIME.

ANY TYPE OF CRIMINAL MISCHIEF. ON THE INSIDE PROPERTY. IT WOULD BE SOMETHING THAT WOULD

BE MORE BENEFICIAL. >> AND AS FAR AS ACCESS I THINK WE HAVE TOO MANY PEOPLE COMING IN AND OUT OF THE PUBLIC TO RESTRICT IS THAT WAY LIKE WHAT WE'RE DOING NOW UNDER LOCK AND

KEY WORKS PRETTY WELL. >> COMMISSIONER SHELL. >> I AGREE WITH COMMISSIONER JONES. REALLY START WITH THE CAMERAS TRYING TO GET A GOODS THEM IN PLAN. I KNOW BETWEEN MR. MCGILL AND CONSTABLE'S OFFICE THEY CAN FIGURE OUT THE BEST SYSTEM AND AT LEAST PROVIDE SOME LEVEL SECURITY AND MONITOR THE GROUNDS OF JUST SOMEONE VANDALIZING ANYTHING LIKE THAT, THAT WILL DEFINITELY PROVIDE US WITH SOME SECURITY -- TAXPAYERS ON THIS BUILDING. I THINK WE SHOULD DO THE BEST THING TO PROTECT IT. THAT'S A GOOD START AND MOVE ON TO OTHER MEASURES IN THE FUTURE.

GET STARTED ON SOME PLANS FOR SECURITY MONITORING. >> COMMISSIONER, ANY OTHER

COMMENTS ON YOUR END? >> NO, I APPRECIATE Y'ALL TAKE THE INITIATIVE TO FALL BACK TO THE CONVERSATION THAT WE HAD A COUPLE OF MONTHS AGO. I TOO WOULD BE VERY SUPPORTY OF SOME TYPE OF CAMERA SYSTEM BUT CAMERAS AREN'T GUN LESS YOU HAVE SOMEBODY WHO WATCHES THE VIDEO.

SO -- AREN'T GOOD. I DON'T WANT TO BE IN A SITUATION WE'RE PURCHASING A CAMERA SO HIRE ADDITIONAL CONSTABLES TO WATCH A CAMERA. I'M JUST BEING HONEST ABOUT THAT. AT END OF THE DAY IF THERE IS SOME TYPE OF REMOTE SYSTEM OR WE CAN LINK INTO A SYSTEM WHERE WE ALREADY HAVE PEOPLE DOING THAT AND JUST ADD THE MONITORS OR

WHATEVER THE SYSTEM MAY BE, I'D BE SUPPORTIVE OF THAT AS WELL. >> AND I THINK MISS CRUMLEY HAD

AN INTERESTING COMMENT. >> I WAS JUST GOING TO MENTION THE KEY CARD SYSTEM TO REALLY LOOK INTO THAT. BUT Y'ALL HAVE ADDRESSED THAT CAMERA SYSTEM FIRST AND THEN RECONSIDERING THE KEY CARD DONE. MOMENT. AND IF YOU'RE LOOKING AT THE CAMERA SYSTEM, CONSIDER THE TIME THAT IT'S GOING TO CAPTURE THE LONGEVITY OF THE VIDEO BEING RETAINED. THAT BECOMES AN ISSUE ESPECIALLY OVER A LONG HOLIDAY IF YOU ONLY

HAVE A 24-HOUR OR WEEK-LONG RETENTION PERIOD FOR THE VIDEO. >> JUDGE, MAY I SUGGEST MAYBE CONSTABLE HENDERSON AND COMMISSIONER INGALSBE AND YOUR OFFICE, AND JEFF AND TAMMY GET TOGETHER AND COME BACK. WE'RE TALKING ABOUT A LOT OF DIFFERENT SITUATIONS BUT Y'ALL COULD COME BACK SOMETHING MORE CONCRETE IF IT'S ALL RIGHT WITH MY COLLEAGUES.

>> I THINK WE CAN TABLE THIS WITH THE IDEA. THANK YOU SIR FOR RECAPPING.

I THINK WE CAN TABLE THIS WITH THE IDEA THAT THE DIRECTION OF THIS MOMENT IN TIME WILL BE TO WORK THE COUNTY JUDGE'S OFFICE AND COMMISSIONER INGALSBE'S OFFICE, AND I.T. TO CIRCLE AROUND A ROBUST CAMERA SYSTEM AND START WITH THAT. SOUNDS LIKE A PLAN? THANK YOU. THANK YOU SO MUCH FOR YOUR TIME. WE'LL TABLE THIS ITEM.

>> AND JUDGE, MY OFFICE WILL WORK WITH YOUR OFFICE AND ANITA TO SET SOMEONE TIMES THAT ARE

[01:10:01]

AVAILABLE FOR ALL OF US. WE'LL GET GOING ON IT. >> OWE, WONDERFUL.

THANK YOU. OKAY. I HAVE AGENDA ITEM NUMBER 49.

[49. Discussion and possible action to appoint Debbie Ingalsbe and Lon Shell to the Core 4 Policy Group; and appoint Michelle Villegas and Lisa Griffin to the Core 4 Task Group. INGALSBE/SHELL]

>> 49, DISCUSSION AND POSSIBLE ACTION TO APPOINT DEBBIE INGALSBE AND LON SHELL TO THE CORE 4 POLICY GROUP AND APPOINT MICHELLE VILLEGAS AND LISA GRIFFIN TO THE CORE FOUR TASK

GROUP. >> SO MOVED. >> SECOND.

>> WE HAVE ONE PERSON SIGNED UP TO SPEAK. MR. DAN LYON.

>> THANK YOU, JUDGE BECERRA. AND I APPRECIATE YOUR COMMENTS EARLIER ABOUT HAVING A COUNTY BY AND FOR THE PEOPLE. THIS IS WHAT THIS COUNTY GETS DOWN TO IS THAT WE BELIEVE EDUCATION SHOULD BE UNDER LOCAL CONTROL AND THE PRIMARY PERSON THAT SHOULD HAVE THE SAY SO IN A CHILD'S EDUCATION IS THE PARENTS AND THIS CORE FOUR THING. I'VE LOOKED AT SOME OF THE STUFF ON THE INTERNET AND IT'S PRETTY NEBULOUS, TO SAY THE LEAST. IT GOES ON AND ON ABOUT HOW A CHILD SHOULD BE EDUCATE, THIS THAT AND THE OTHER THING. THEN I GET DOWN TO SOME OF THE BRASS TACKS THERE AND I FIND OUT THAT BILL GATES IS ONE OF THE PERSONS THAT IS BEHIND THIS.

NOW I'M NOT INTO HAVING A LAWSUIT FOR BILL GATES OR FOR ANYBODY, BUT APPARENTLY, BILL GATES POLIO VACCINE AGENDA THAT HE RAN IN INDIA, HE WAS KICKED OUT OF INDIA IN 2012 BECAUSE THERE WAS APPARENTLYS POLIO VACCINES WERE CAUSING PARALYSIS, OR AT LEAST THAT WAS CHARGED.

ALSO, HIS VACCINE PROGRAM IN SUB-SAHARAN AFRICA, THERE ARE CHARGES IT'S CAUSING WIDESPREAD ADMINISTER ILT -- ADMINISTER ILLTY. WHEN PEOPLE COME TO THESE VILLAGES, PEOPLE SCATTER. BUT ANYWAY, PERSONALLY I DO NOT TRUST BILL GATES.

I WILL SAY THAT. AND AS FAR AS HIM GETTING HIS HANDS ON PUBLIC EDUCATION, I'M SORRY. I CAN'T SEE IT. AND I DON'T REALLY KNOW WHY THE COUNTY IS INVOLVED IN PUBLIC EDUCATION. ALTHOUGH I WILL SAY OUR LOCAL SCHOOL DISTRICTS SAN MARCOS. IT'S MY OPINION THAT THE BOARD OF TRUSTEE NOT COMPETENT TO RUN THAT SCHOOL DISTRICT. THERE ARE A COUPLE OF VERY GOOD PEOPLE ON THERE.

THERE ARE A COUPLE OF PEOPLE I BELIEVE ARE COMMUNISTS AND THAT'S LITERALLY, NOT JUST FIGURATIVELY SPEAKING. AND THERE IS ONE PERSON THAT USES THE BOARD OF TRUSTEES TO LAUNCH HIS POLITICAL CAMPAIGNS. BUT ALL THAT BEING SAID, IT IS THEIR RESPONSIBILITY.

THEY SHOULD BE SEEKING INPUT FROM PARENTS. I GUESS THEY SHOULD ALSO BE SEEKING INPUT FROM PEOPLE WHO PAY THE TAXES FOR TO RUN THE SCHOOL DISTRICT, WHICH THEY DON'T, OF COURSE. BUT THEY DO ALLOW YOU TO SPEAK THERE SOMETIMES.

ALTHOUGH I'VE BEEN EVICTED FROM THE PODIUM ONCE BECAUSE THEY DIDN'T LIKE WHAT I WAS SAYING,

THANK YOU THANK YOU VERY MUCH. >> AND THAT TIMER WAS JUST A -- FROM OURS.

THANK YOU MR. LYON. COMMISSIONER INGALSBE, THIS IS YOUR AGENDAITE PEOPLE.

I'M CERTAINLY WILLING TO WITHDRAW MY NAME AND YOU CAN SERVE IN MY PLACE ALONG WITH

>> I'VE BEEN ON THAT BOARD SINCE ITS INCEPTION AND COMMISSIONER INGALSBE WOULD LIKE TO GET BACK ON MAYBE WE CAN ROTATE EVERY SO OFTEN IF YOU'D LIKE TO PARTICIPATE SINCE I'VE BEEN

>> OH, I DON'T KNOW WHAT IT IS. WE CAN COME BACK AND DISCUSS THAT.

>> THAT'S PERFECT. ON THIS SAME AGENDA ITEM WE ALSO HAVE TWO OTHER NAMES TO BE APPOINTED IN THE TASK GROUP, SO JUST TO KNOW IT'S A MOTION FOR ALL FOUR OF US.

>> JUDGE, I UNDERSTAND SOME OF THE CONCERNS MR. LYON HAS SOME OF THOSE SAME CONCERNS, I'D FEEL A LOT BETTER THAN US HAVING REPRESENTATION ON THERE WITH SOME PEOPLE THAT WE KNOW AND

HAVE THAT WE HAVE SOME SAY IN SOME OF THE THINGS. >> THANK YOU, SO THE MOTION IS FOR COMMISSIONER INGALSBE AND MYSELF TO SERVE ON THERE. AND THE MICHELLE AND LISA ON THE
