Galilee Citizens Express Concern over Store Construction

Published on August 23, 2016 by Larry Crippen

During “Citizen Input” at Walker County Commissioners’ Court Monday morning, citizens were in attendance to express concern about new construction near churches on Highway 30 near Galilee.

Galilee area resident and Mayor Tom Freeman initially described the issue to commissioners . . . .

 

Galilee local citizen, Carol Williams, also commented on the new construction . . . .

 

County Planning & Development Director Andy Isbell said the County was only involved with issuing the permit and commented on the matter further . . . .

 

Isbell also advised them if they had any issues with driveway inlet and outlet safety regarding the project in question to consult with the Texas Department of Transportation.

Also Monday, commissioners approved a tax rate of $61.57 cents per $100 taxable assessed valuation which is the same as the effective rate. Last year’s tax rate was higher at $62.06 cents. The budget adopted for fiscal year 2016-17 totals $30,149,000.
