Wise County commissioners will welcome new fire marshal, Charles Beard, at their regular meeting 9 a.m. Monday.
He accepted the post May 3 and will begin work next week. The meeting is in the third-floor conference room of the courthouse in Decatur.
Commissioners will also discuss allowing Precinct 3 Commissioner Harry Lamance to declare numerous stumps he has removed from the right-of-way as “waste” under the Local Government Code. This would allow Lamance to dispose of stumps as “routinely discarded waste.”
Also on the agenda is a contract renewal with landowner Rick Woods in Precinct 3 for storage of aggregate and salvage aggregate on a piece of property belonging to him on County Road 4680.
