I would like to extend congratulations to our newly elected officials - Judge Susan Moore, Precinct 3 Commissioner Ronald Bailey and Tax Assessor-Collector Michele Garcia, and to our re-elected officials Sheriff Kirby Brumby, Constables Michael De La Garza and Mike Thompson, County Attorney Rob Baiamonte, and Precinct 1 Commissioner Julian Flores. I look forward to working with each of these folks.

County OK’s restoration contract
At the Jan. 14 Goliad County Commissioner’s Court meeting, commissioners approved a contract between Goliad County and Pamela Jary Rosser for the restoration of the Bull Durham mural on the north wall of the library. A donation by Patsy and Scotty Light will cover the cost of the restoration.
Fonseca provides update
Emergency Management Coor-dinator Peggy Fonseca presented an update on the status of NIMS (National Incident Management System) training for county officials.
This training is essential in providing officials information on how to operate under a unified command system during emergencies.
Court accepts paintings
The Court accepted a donation from Dr. Robert Shook of 15 paintings by renowned artist Tom Jones of Victoria.
These paintings, each of which is a scene from one of the rare pre-Civil War drives from Texas to California, will be displayed in the library’s archive room.
Court discusses Scofflaw
The court held a discussion concerning implementation of the Goliad County Scofflaw by the tax office. The Scofflaw permits denial of registration for a motor vehicle if the owner of the vehicle owes the county money for a fine, fee, or tax that is past due.
The next Goliad County Commissioners meeting is scheduled for Tuesday, Feb. 5. The public is invited to attend the meetings at the courthouse.
