The Eddy County Commission will take a tour of the county detention center and hold a public hearing on vacating six county roads during its regularly-scheduled meeting Tuesday in Carlsbad.

At 8:30 a.m., commissioners will depart for their bi-annual tour of the Eddy County Detention Center and breakfast. The commission will reconvene at 10:30 a.m. at the Eddy County Administration Complex for service awards and a final report on the Eagle Draw Flood District by Flood Commissioner Louise Tracy.

A public hearing will then be held concerning the county’s intent to vacate all or certain portions of the following roads:

• Kingsnake Road (CR 419)

• Gypsum Road (CR 425)

• Ogden Road (CR 718)

• Catfish Lane (CR 726)

• Cooksey Ranch Road (CR 723)

• Nicholas Road (CR 744)

Each road will be considered, discussed, and acted upon separately. There will be a three-minute time limit per person on public comment.

The commission will also consider a request by commissioner Susan Crockett to move public comment and announcements to the top of commission agendas; hear a presentation on the liability the state Motor Vehicles Department (MVD) is placing on local, government-run MVD offices by Wesley Hooper; consider a request for a July 19 public hearing to consider recommended changes to the Eddy County Communications Tower Ordinance; and consider a funding request from the Cavern City Child Advocacy Center.
