Did you know? ...

• The former EMS medical directors were upset that the county and DeTar Hospital had discussions about the possibility of having an emergency department in Goliad.

• Many, many people are excited about the possibility of an emergency department and/or clinic to provide enhanced and additional services and choices, whether it is with DeTar or another hospital system.

• The duties and responsibilities of an off-line medical director are detailed in the Texas Medical Board Rules under Title 22 Chapter 197 of the Texas Administrative Code.

• Choices and competition result in more and better services and that is why there are multiple restaurants and fast food businesses, multiple convenience stores to buy fuel, food and misc. items, two feed stores, two funeral homes, two banks and soon to be a third, and two bars on the square.

• The auditorium was conveyed from Texas Parks and Wildlife jointly to the city and county in 1966. Both contribute to a fund used for routine maintenance and utilities. Major renovations would be equal responsibility of both the city and county. For FY 2014 the county set aside $100,000 to begin renovations on the auditorium, however, the city chose not to match at that time.

• The “closed/executive” sessions of the commissioner’s court on April 10th and 14th to discuss “Personnel Matters” was conducted under the Opening Meetings Act codified as Texas Government Code Sec. 551.074 and to have conducted the meeting in “open” session would have been not only improper but in violation of code.
