Llano Commissioners eye road clean-up plan
February 10, 2014, 5:00 pm by Lance Reaves
Llano County Commissioners Monday kept the countywide burn ban active and approved moving forward with a volunteer county road clean-up program.
Precinct 1 Commissioner Peter Jones proposed the Llano County Adopt-a-County-Road program. The program, modeled after the Texas Department of Transportation’s (TxDOT) Adopt-a-Highway, is intended to keep roads clean while saving taxpayers’ money.
"I think all of us live here because of the beauty of the area, and the last thing we want is to see trash collecting on the roads,” Jones said.
The program would allow individuals, families or various organizations to adopt a two-mile stretch of a county road (CR) in Llano County for a minimum two years. Among the guidelines, participants would agree to pick up trash or litter four times per year and report to a commissioner when the task is completed.
Adopt-a-County-Road signs will be posted in the designated section with the adopting entity’s name. Interested participants would need to submit a request form to the commissioner in his or her precinct. The road would be subject to a commissioner’s approval as well.
Commissioners unanimously complimented the idea.
