REFUGIO – Refugio County Commissioners reviewed the county road inventory for each precinct on Tuesday, April 9.

The review was to gather a biennial update on any changes to the county’s roads for the Texas Department of Transportation.

Precinct 1 Commissioner Ann Lopez said Humble Road, because of increased truck traffic, was upgraded to a paved road.

Precinct 2 Commissioner Stanley Tuttle said Fehner Road was taken off the inventory.

Precinct 3 Commissioner Gary Bourland said his precinct had no changes.

And Precinct 4 Commissioner Rodrigo Bernal said Meitzen Road was taken off the inventory while River Road was added.

Commissioners also heard traffic enforcement monthly reports. The March 2013 report totaled $50,115 in fines.

The six-month traffic enforcement report for October 2012 through March 2013 totaled $291,490 in fines for commercial vehicles and $297,460 in fines for non-commercial vehicles.

Also, Librarian Tina McGuill presented an annual report on the Dennis M. O’Connor Public Library.

She highlighted the summer reading program in which top winners won Kindle e-readers.

She said the library has a pre-school reading program to encourage young children to read.

Genealogy classes were held and conducted by volunteer Paul Moore.

The 50th anniversary of the library was celebrated Sept. 4, 2012. The library was established in 1962.

And a display was prepared during Banned Book Week “to encourage patrons to exercise their First Amendment right and the freedom to read.”

McGuill also said the O’Connor Library was on of 14 public libraries participating in a state report that gathered statistics such as how many checked out books, used computers, audio and other services.
