  • Bridge on Texas Road discussed at fiscal court meeting

    There were two main areas of discussion during last Friday’s meeting of the Washington County fiscal court.

On July 21, it was reported that stone one side of the bridge had fallen off, which prompted Washington County Judge-Executive John Settles to declare an emergency order due to safety concerns.

The number of donors continues to decline, and the shortfall is significant enough that the Red Cross could experience an emergency situation in the coming weeks.
