Commissioners to consider street paving project

Ector County Commissioners will meet during their regularly scheduled meeting Monday to consider approving a proposed paving of unpaved streets in Precinct 4.

The meeting is at 10 a.m. in the commissioners’ courtroom located in the Ector County Administration building annex, 1010 E. Eighth St.

The proposal involves the paving of 11.2 miles of unpaved streets in Precinct 4, and a deal with Landgraf, Crutcher & Associates to provide all surveying and engineering services at a cost of no more than $77,050.

Precinct 4 Commissioner Armando Rodriguez said LCA must conduct surveying to determine exact perimeters of the unpaved roads, which are county property and which are residential property.

Rodriguez said it looks like this project will encompass all of the unpaved roads in Precinct 4, but that won’t be known for sure until after the survey.

The total estimated cost of the project, $1,186,195, would be used for labor and materials. Both the survey cost and the total estimated cost of the project would be paid through the county’s reserved fund, Rodriguez said, but the project may end up costing more after the survey. And with the county’s tight budget, Rodriguez said the project may take several stages.

The agenda shows the commissioners’ court also plans to discuss legal matters, personnel matters and real estate issues during executive session.
