Weinacht musters up plan
to see Walker at CC event
By Rosie Flores
PECOS, April 21, 1995 - Reeves County Attorney Bill Weinacht said he
does plan to listen to Rep. Gary Walker during his visit today--but not
at the meeting scheduled between Walker and Reeves County Commissioners.
Weinacht released a statement regarding his position on the meeting,
slated for today at 5 p.m. at the Reeves County Commissioner's Court.
The main topic is scheduled to be the abolishment of the county
The court will be meeting with Walker, who will arrive in Pecos at about
5 p.m., and will speak at the annual Texas Aggie Muster from 6:30 to
8:30 p.m. at the Pecos Valley Country Club.
Abolishment of the court-at-law was approved by commissioners in
January, but Walker later declined to submit a bill in the Texas House,
saying he had received more letters in support of the position than
The abolishment was promoted as a cost-cutting measure by County Judge
Jimmy Galindo, and the recent dispute has led to a heated exchange
between the first-term representative and the county attorney.
"The Commissioner's Court meeting is a waste of time because Mr. Walker
doesn't care what the Commissioner's Court thinks," said Weinacht. "I'm
going to the Muster at the Country Club instead. I believe Mr. Walker
will make his decision based on what the people at the Country Club
think," he said.
"Roddy Harrison is an Aggie and he gave me his invitation and asked me
to go in his place because he can't be there. I've been to several
musters in College Station because my parents are big A&M supporters,"
Walker had a previous engagement set for 5:30 p.m. and agreed to meet
with the commissioners at 5 p.m. for about 25 minutes.
Galindo said the 5 p.m. meeting with Walker will go on as scheduled this
afternoon at the county courthouse.
Commissioners will also be meeting on Monday in their regularly
scheduled meeting, at 9:30 a.m. on the third floor of the courthouse.
Commissioners will discuss modifying Reeves County Detention Center
Assistant Warden position salary and Reeves County Detention change
The court will listen to a proposal to waive penalty and interest on
delinquent taxes for Bell Motel property and discuss the District
Clerk's office copier replacement.
Commissioners will also:
--Discuss contract for food services for Reeves County Detention Center.
--Listen to a presentation of worker's compensation plan from Texas
Association of Counties.
--Budget amendment and line-item transfers.
--Approve and pay semi-monthly bills.
--Approve reports from various departments.
