The Bowie County Commissioners Court held their regular meeting on Monday, April 9, 2018 at 9 a.m.  in the Bowie County Courthouse.  The meeting opened with an invocation and Pledge of Allegiance, led by Commissioner James Strain.  
Jack Neal, Executive Director of the North East Texas Trails Coalition, addressed the court, thanking them for their support and donations, and detailing the recent NETT Opening Day held on April 7, 2018.  
Thirteen events in eleven trail towns kicked off NETT’s “trail season” last Saturday, including scavenger hunts, trail clean-ups, and hikes.  Over 150 people participated in these events, designed to bring awareness to the 130 mile trail from New Boston to Farmersville.
The Court voted unanimously to appoint Curtis Cole to fill the position of Justice of the Peace Precinct 2 effective May 1, 2018.  Cole was voted into the Precinct 2 office in the November primary elections with no opponent, and with the JP position currently vacant, the Bowie County Sheriff’s Department has been covering the position.  Sheriff James Prince concurred with Judge Carlow that allowing Cole to assume his duties sooner would be beneficial to all.
Also approved unanimously were the 2018-19 Truancy and Intervention Grant Resolution, budget amendments in the form of line item transfers, payment of accounts payable and payroll, and the minutes from prior meetings.
