RUSK — The Cherokee County Commissioners Court will meet during their regularly scheduled meeting Monday morning to hold a public meeting about closing CR 3431 during evening hours. During their April meeting, the court discussed closing the road — also known as Killough Monument Road — to the public from 6 p.m. to 6 a.m. The court agreed that putting a public notice sign closing the road during that time will help deter criminal mischief and illegal dumping.

In other business the court will also consider:

• adopting a resolution to oppose the state legislature from lowering existing appraisal cap from 10 percent to three or five percent;

• authorizing a proclamation naming April Fair Housing Month in Cherokee County;

• naming County 4H Agent Ramona Kellam as District Extension Administrator;

• renaming Billie Hopson as Board Chairperson and Trustee of ACCESS for a two-year term;

• authorizing the county treasurer to request jury reimbursement fees from the state; and

• allowing use of the courthouse lawn for a National Day of Prayer rally on May 4.

The court also will consider the following consent agenda:

• Pct. 3 Constable Edward Lee to attend constable school June 12-13;

• County Treasurer Patsy Lassister to attend county investment officer level II seminar June 6-9 in Galveston;

• Health unit employee Serena Perez to attend Learn THM connect seminar May 11 in Tyler;

• Health unit employees Charlotte Sanders, Rhonda Jones and Marsha Stone to attend core disaster life support seminar April 27 in Tyler; and

• Lot 1 and 2 Block one, Chancellor’s subdivision, plat only.

The court regularly meets at 10 a.m. every second and fourth Monday of the month. Meetings are open to the public and include time for citizen comments.
