On Monday, November 8, 2021 the Sutton County Commissioners met to handle a light agenda and to canvas the constitutional amendment election.
The accounts payable passed unanimously after a couple of questions from the commissioners asking for explanation.

Sutton County Auditor Maura Weingart reported that the auditors will be in Sonora the 1st week of December to go over last year’s audit. County Judge Rachel Duran requested that the audit be printed out and given to each commissioner before the auditors arrive.

With an in favor vote of 3 to 1, Sutton County Sheriff Oscar Chavez has the approval to submit a FNA (Facility Need Analysis) request to the Texas Commission on jail standards. The commission will come in and evaluate what needs to be changed and/or fixed. The S.O. will have to prioritize and work on getting things done or risk being shut down. The commissioners requested to be present when the evaluation takes place. They want to know what is said instead of going on hear say.

Sutton County Librarian Deborah Brown reported that the library are on track and going well. In the upcoming month Santa and Ms. Clause will make an appearance as well as have a table set up at the downtown Christmas event on Wednesday, December 1, 2021. Brown added that there will be a cookie decorating class coming up available for a cost of $5.00.

Weingart requested permission to place an ad for a full time auditor’s assistant. Commissioners Carl Teaff and Bob Brockman made a recommendation that whomever fills this position needs to have CPA experience. Weingart agreed. The position will be posted at a later date.

The full time position in the county judge’s office has been filled. With this hiring it has come to light that there is no full time salary pay scaled for that position. After discussion between Judge Duran, Commissioner Teaff and Sutton County Treasurer Janell Schniers Martin there will be a pay scale put into place in the upcoming meeting.
