Hays County Courthouse, San Marcos, TX – The Hays County Commissioners Court today continued County Judge Bert Cobb’s November 4 declaration of local disaster so that recovery from the October 31 flooding could continue uninterrupted. In an emergency meeting called for Friday afternoon, the Court voted 3-0 to continue the declaration until rescinded by the Court. The initial declaration by law (Texas Government Code 418.108) was in effect for only seven days and would have expired over the Veterans Day weekend if not approved by the Commissioners Court.
Precinct 1 Commissioner Debbie Gonzales Ingalsbe, Precinct 3 Commissioner Will Conley and Precinct 4 Commissioner Ray Whisenant were present at the meeting. Judge Cobb and Precinct 2 Commissioner Mark Jones were absent conducting County business.
