Ector County Commissioners will vote again during their regularly scheduled meeting Monday on a proposed paving project of Precinct 4 that was previously turned down by commissioners last February.
The meeting is at 10 a.m. in the commissioners’ courtroom located in the Ector County administration building annex, 1010 E. Eighth St.
Precinct 4 Commissioner Armando Rodriguez is proposing an initial survey of unpaved roads to be done by Landgraf, Crutcher & Associates for a fee of no more than $77,050, with a total project cost estimated to be $1,185,195. Rodriguez previously said the project could be done in parts over time to split up the payment.
The project would pave 11.2 miles of unpaved road in Precinct 4, which LCA President John Landgraf previously said made up all of the unpaved roads in that precinct.
Commissioners originally turned down the proposed project, saying they would like to see a study done on unpaved roads throughout the whole county, not just Precinct 4. An Ector County Highways and Streets Department report shows Precinct 1 has 37 unpaved roads, compared to the 19 in Precinct 4.
Rodriguez previously said poor economic development is one of the main reasons he would like to see the roads in his precinct paved.
“There’s been no economic development whatsoever,” Rodriguez said previously. “A lot of businesses would not like to get into an area where the streets are not being paved.”
The agenda also shows legal matters, personnel matters and real estate issues during executive session.
