Besides dealing with monthly reports and recurring budget items, the most recent Tyler County Commissioner's Court focused on giving back and bettering this area.
Precinct 3 commissioner Mike Marshall, dedicated time last week to aid in the cleaning of Tyler County and Precinct 3. Marshall, held a special waste collection day for residents to dispose of unwanted trash. Commissioner Marshall looks forward to this annual event, hoping increasing numbers of people take advantage of it each year.
Later in the meeting, Tyler County Commissioners discussed the transferring of title on the 2017 Sienna van to the Tyler County Veterans Administration for transportation of veterans to the facility. County Judge Jacques Blanchette led the motion to make the transfer official.
The court also passed a proclamation to declare March, "Red Cross Month".
The commissioners, Blanchette and John Stagg, from the American Red Cross put this motion into action immediately.
It was a successful week for the commissioners court as it focused on improving the community. The members strive to continuing to better Tyler County even more in the future.
