Tip Sheet: Travis County Commissioners 12-9

Sunday, December 7, 2014 by Mark Richardson

The Travis County Commissioners Court meets at 9 a.m. Tuesday. In the interest of space, we’ve decided not to post the entire agenda here. The County Clerk’s office hosts a copy at its website.

Items of interest for Commissioners Court include:

10. RECEIVE UPDATE ON COMPLIANCE REVIEW OF TRAVIS COUNTY’S ECONOMIC DEVELOPMENT INCENTIVE AGREEMENTS.
(Backup)

Monitor’s take:  Commissioners will receive an update on all of Travis County’s current economic development agreements in order to determine if the companies are in compliance with their agreements.

19. CONSIDER AND TAKE APPROPRIATE ACTION ON TRAVIS COUNTY APPOINTMENT TO THE CENTRAL TEXAS REGIONAL MOBILITY AUTHORITY (CTRMA) BOARD OF DIRECTORS.

Monitor’s take:  Commissioners will consider and likely make an appointment to the toll authority board. With SH45 SW looming in the near future, Commissioners may want to carefully consider who they put on the CTRMA board.

24. RECEIVE BRIEFING AND TAKE APPROPRIATE ACTION REGARDING THE APPOINTMENT OF TRAVIS COUNTY CHIEF MEDICAL EXAMINER. 

Monitor’s take: Commissioners interviewed three finalists for the Medical Examiner last week, and could name a new ME this week. (Executive session).

A1. RECEIVE LEGAL BRIEFING AND TAKE APPROPRIATE ACTION REGARDING PROPOSED CHANGES TO CENTRAL BOOKING INTERLOCAL WITH THE CITY OF AUSTIN.

Monitor’s take:  Another chapter in the saga of Central Booking, in which the city wants changes in they way the county puts immigration holds on prisoners. This week will be the last chance for the city to approve the agreement. If not, county officials are not sure whether they will get paid by the city in January. (Executive session).
