The Commissioner’s Court Of Nolan County met for their regular meeting on April 23 at 9 a.m., in the County Courthouse with Judge May presiding. Among the highlights on the packed agenda that were discussed and mediated were the burn ban being reinstated, a presentation to the Court by two electric power supply companies, bids were received to replace and remove Chillers, Flexbase bid awarded.
The burn ban was discussed and upon consideration, the Commission decided to reinstate the burn ban. A burn ban is extended when there are extreme drought conditions that exist within the county.
With an electrical contract coming up at the end of the month, two electric companies gave a presentation each regarding their power companies. These energy procurement firms offer sales advice, market price analysis, marketing, energy analysis, procurement, operational efficiencies and annual budget forecasts. Companies such as these continue to expand as states continue to become more and more deregulated.
