GILMER–Upshur County Commissioners Court on Friday will consider assigning the former information technology office to Election Administrator Lory Harle’s office.

That is among nine items on the agenda, counting such matters as the invocation and adjournment, for the 9 a.m. public meeting on the Upshur County Courthouse’s third floor.

In other business, the court will “hear from Robb Stewart concerning the Upshur County school land and discuss as needed.”

The county owns and receives revenue from acreage it owns in two West Texas counties, Baylor and Throckmorton. Some revenue from that property is distributed annually among the nine school districts lying wholly or partly in Upshur County.

In other business Friday, the court is to consider:

–Approving a radio tower access contract with UT Health East Texas EMS.

–Declaring a list of computers, cell phones and other miscellaneous equipment as surplus and auctioning it.

–Amending a contract with NetDATA, which provides the county’s computer software, to correct the starting date.

–Approving allowing Julie York, a county extension agent, to apply for graduate school for a doctor of education degree through the Agricultural Education and Communications department of Texas A&M for the fall of 2019.

–Approving a number of routine items which are sub-grouped under one item on the agenda, such as paying bills, accepting documents and approving the payroll, among others.
