1 THE STATE OF TEXAS COUNTY OF CAMERON ' ' BE IT REMEMBERED on the 5th day of MAY, 1998, there was conducted a REGULAR Public Meeting of the Honorable Commissioners' Court of Cameron County, Texas, at the Courthouse thereof, in the City of Brownsville, Texas, for the purpose of transacting any and all business that may lawfully be brought before the same. THE COURT MET AT: PRESENT: 9:30 A.M. GILBERTO HINOJOSA COUNTY JUDGE PEDRO PETE BENAVIDES COMMISSIONER, PRECINCT NO. 1 CARLOS H. CASCOS, C.P.A. COMMISSIONER, PRECINCT NO. 2 JAMES R. MATZ COMMISSIONER, PRECINCT NO. 3 HECTOR PEÑA COMMISSIONER, PRECINCT NO. 4 Hilda V. Treviño Deputy COUNTY CLERK ABSENT: ABSENT: The meeting was called to order by Judge Pro-tem Carlos H. Cascos, C.P.A. He then asked Mr. Bob Clark, Brownsville resident, for the invocation and Mr. Bill Hudson, Hudson Farm, to lead the Court and the audience in reciting the Pledge of Allegiance.

2 The Court considered the following matters as posted and filed for Record in the Office of the County Clerk on May 1, 1998, at 2:34 P.M.: (3) APPROVAL OF THE MINUTES OF APRIL 14, 1998, REGULAR MEETING Upon motion by Commissioner Matz, seconded by Commissioner Benavides and carried unanimously, the Minutes of the Special Meeting held on April 14, 1998, at 10:30 A.M., were approved. (6) PRESENTATION OF THE SECOND QUARTERLY REPORT FOR THE INTERNATIONAL BRIDGE SYSTEM At this time, Mr. Pete Sepulveda, Bridge Systems Director, highlighted the number of crossings and revenues, as reflected in the 1998 Second Quarterly Reports of the Gateway International Bridge at Brownsville and the Free Trade Bridge at Los Indios. Judge Pro-tem Cascos expressed concern as to the extended hours of operation at the Free Trade Bridge at Los Indios which reflected a limited increase between the extended hours of 10:00 p.m and 12:00 a.m., and displayed little to no impact on the crossings. Mr. Sepulveda stated that the limited number of crossings between the extended hours was due to the bad conditions of the access roads and the infrastructure on the Mexican side of the Bridge. Commissioner Cascos suggested that the current trends which might cause a shortfall should be anticipated and that a contingency plan should be implemented. Commissioner Benavides moved that the Presentation of the 1998 Second Quarterly Reports for the International Bridge Systems be acknowledged. The motion was seconded by Commissioner Peña and carried unanimously. The Reports are as follow:

3 (1) APPROVAL OF COUNTY CLAIMS Upon motion by Commissioner Matz, seconded by Commissioner Benavides and carried unanimously, the County Claims were approved as presented by the County Auditor.

4 (5) IN THE MATTER OF A RESOLUTION SUPPORTING THE CONSTRUCTION OF A BRIDGE BY THE TEXAS DEPARTMENT OF TRANSPORTATION, CROSSING OVER THE PASEO DE LA RESACA PARK, AS A PART OF THE FM/802 PROJECT IN 1999 (TABLED) NOTE: JUDGE HINOJOSA JOINED THE MEETING. At this time, Mr. Bill Hudson, Hudson Farm Development Manager, highlighted the construction and the sites to be implemented at the Paseo De La Resaca Park, as part of the FM802 Project in Judge Hinojosa stated that the Texas Department of Transportation was scheduled to expand FM802, which was partially funded and added that the project was on the list of priorities. He stated that there had been discussions regarding the expansion of Highway 77/83, to the Los Tomates International Bridge and the reallocation of resources from the FM802 Project to the extension of Highway 77/83. Judge Hinojosa noted that the Texas Department of Transportation had funded a portion of the extension, which would be the overpass from 14th Street to the border station and reported that the State was attempting to locate different funding approaches from a Grant, additional resources from the State, reallocation of resources from existing projects or delaying existing projects to provide immediate funding. He expressed concern as to whether the Texas Department of Transportation would presume that the County was requesting a high priority on said project by passing the resolution. Judge Hinojosa reported that a letter had been received from an attorney threatening to sue the County for the accident which occurred at the Rio Hondo Low Water Bridge, which was a priority and added that the resolution might affect the allocation of resources to bridges in need of repairs or replacement. Mr. Hudson noted that the Resolution would simply reflect the support of the Project, as opposed to the intent of placing the FM802 Project as a priority and added that the construction of the bridge would be a long term significant consequence to the County and citizens. Commissioner Cascos suggested that the Resolution be worded to reflect that the Project should not impact or jeopardize ongoing high priority Projects. Commissioner Matz stated that the low water bridge had been an issue for many years and added that the importance of the high priority Projects was based on the availability of funds from the State. Upon motion by Commissioner Cascos, seconded by Commissioner Benavides and carried unanimously, this Item was (TABLED) for one (1) week, in order to draft the appropriate wording to the Resolution. Minutes\May 5, 1998\Page 4

5 (4) ADOPTION OF A RESOLUTION HONORING MR. TERRY LOCKAMY, ON THE OCCASION OF HIS RETIREMENT FROM THE COUNTY EXTENSION DEPARTMENT, CAMERON COUNTY Commissioner Cascos moved that the Resolution honoring Mr. Terry Lockamy, on the occasion of his retirement from the County Extension Department, Cameron County, be adopted. The motion was seconded by Commissioner Peña and carried unanimously. The Resolution is as follows: Minutes\May 5, 1998\Page 5

6 (7) PRESENTATION OF THE FIRST QUARTERLY SAFETY RISK REPORT BY THE PERSONNEL/SAFETY RISK DIRECTOR At this time, Mr. Manuel Villarreal, Personnel/Safety Risk Director, reported the progress of the County Accident Prevention Plan implemented in the Road and Bridge and Sheriff=s Department and noted that a preliminary review of the Plan would be conducted in June 1998, by a Texas Association of Counties Representative. He stated that the County was required to pass the actual review in August 1998, in order to qualify for the discount of the Workers= Compensation premiums. He reported that most of the safety equipment had been secured, but noted that most Departments were limited on safety equipment, due to the limitations in each Department=s Budget. Judge Hinojosa questioned whether the Public Works Department and the Sheriff=s Department contained Safety Officers and Mr. Villarreal responded that Mr. Joe Paredes, Public Works Department, and Mr. Roger Olson, Sheriff=s Department, had been designated as the Safety Coordinators for each department. Judge Hinojosa recommended that Safety Coordinators should be designated in all the large Departments, in order to implement the accident prevention plans and added that proper training should be conducted in the departments. Mr. Villarreal reported that the Accident Prevention Plans had been submitted to the Departments for the required signatures and added that a Plan was being developed for the Health Department, the Parks System and the Maintenance and Operation Department. He highlighted the 1998 Summary of Injuries Report from January 1, 1998, through March 31, Mr. Mark Yates, County Auditor, noted that each Department contained a Small Tools and Equipment Budget which could be utilized for the purchase of safety equipment. Mr. Villarreal suggested that First Aid, Cardiovascular Pulmonary Resuscitation (CPR) Training and Defensive Driving Programs should be implemented in the County and added that individuals should be trained and certified, in order to conduct the programs in-house. Upon motion by Commissioner Benavides, seconded by Commissioner Peña and carried unanimously, the presentation of the First Quarterly Safety Risk Report by the Personnel Director was acknowledged. The Reports are as follow: Minutes\May 5, 1998\Page 6

7 (8) IN THE MATTER OF A RESOLUTION ESTABLISHING AN ENTERPRISE FUND TO BE UTILIZED FOR CONSTRUCTION PROJECTS (TABLED) At this time, Judge Hinojosa explained that the Enterprise Fund would be funded from various sources, such as foreclosed property sales, rentals of facilities currently paid by the County and revenues from County owned facilities currently being leased. He stated that the funds for smaller constructions projects would be borrowed from the Enterprise Fund and replaced through the revenues of the property sales and rentals. Mr. Mark Yates, County Auditor, clarified that the fund would essentially be a Capital Project Replacement Fund, which would be funded through surpluses generated from rentals which the County would have paid, rentals from County owned facilities and sale of forfeiture properties. Judge Hinojosa stated that the unused funds from Lapsed Salaries and unexpected revenues should also be placed in said fund and added that the fund would be utilized for the construction of facilities to house overcrowded Departments. Commissioner Cascos clarified that the fund would be a General Fund and noted that if the fund did contain any restrictions, it would be utilized at the Court=s discretion. He noted that if the fund contained a large surplus, the funds could be utilized to subsidize General Fund monies. Commissioner Matz requested that the matter be incorporated into the five (5) year Capital Project and that the mid-year budget review, the status of fund balance, and the balance projected for the end of the Fiscal Year, be conducted and submitted to the Court, in order to address the matter. Mr. Yates stated that the fund was an excellent approach to implementing the five (5) year Capital Project and added that the operational budget was constantly being reviewed to determine if there were enough funds available as the County moved forward. He stated that capital infrastructures and the project road map had been neglected and that the General Fund assets were lagging behind, due to the availability of resources. Mr. Yates reported that equipment, such as computers and technology, had been funded from excess surplus, but noted that the excess surplus was not always available and the County had to do without computers and copiers. He stated that the Enterprise Fund was an attempt to address the necessary construction of the County facilities and replacement of the main fixtures. Commissioner Cascos confirmed that the creation of the fund was a good approach, but stated that the County was working with limited revenues being placed in the Budget. He stated that since the excess revenues would be placed into said fund, the County should consider allocating a percentage of the Ad Valorem Taxes, in order to maintain a fixed amount in the fund. Minutes\May 5, 1998\Page 7

8 Judge Hinojosa stated that it would be difficult to allocate a certain percentage of the Ad Valorem Taxes and added that if the County assumed no increases in personnel in any Department, the current funding commitments would not allow the County to increase the taxes. He stated that the Budget would need to be decreased for one (1) year, in order to allocate the funds to Capital Improvements and the County would need to operate with the decreased Budget, in terms of future planning. Judge Hinojosa stated that the residents would be hesitant to have their Ad Valorem taxes utilized in constructing buildings in different areas of the County, other than their own and added that the actions and projects performed by the County were part of the overall financial plan. He stated that the unanticipated funding sources should be placed in the Fund and incorporated into the Budget, in order to prevent allocating funds from the Departments. Judge Hinojosa stated that Ms. Grace Salinas, Director of Management, along with the Auditor=s Office, would present the Lapsed Salaries Plan and the Capital Project Replacement Plan to the Court for review and approval. Upon motion by Commissioner Benavides, seconded by Commissioner Cascos and carried unanimously, this Item was (TABLED), until a plan was developed. (9) IN THE MATTER OF THE AGREEMENT BETWEEN CAMERON COUNTY AND MR. ALFREDO PADILLA, ATTORNEY AT LAW, TO PROVIDE LEGAL SERVICES FOR THE 138TH DISTRICT COURT (TABLED) At this time, there was some discussion as to whether the Contract had been reviewed by the appropriate County Officials and Mr. Mark Yates, County Auditor, reported that the amount of $80, had been budgeted for each District Court for the Court Appointed Attorneys. He stated that the amount of $20, had been spent in the 138th District Court since the beginning of the Fiscal Year and recommended that the budget for the Court Appointed Attorney should be limited to the amounts of $40, to $50, There was some discussion as to whether all the District Court=s budget for the Court Appointed Attorneys could be limited and the suggestion was made to Table the Item, in order to further review the Contract, due to the inconsistent information reflected in the Contract. At this time, Commissioner Cascos expressed concern as to the expired Court Appointed Contract for Mr. Albert Garcia, Attorney at Law, which was provided by the County Auditor and whether the authorization was given to provide the Legal Services on a month-to-month basis when the Contract had expired. Upon motion by Commissioner Cascos, seconded by Commissioner Benavides and carried unanimously, this Item was (TABLED). Minutes\May 5, 1998\Page 8

9 (10) AUTHORIZATION FOR THE SHERIFF=S OFFICE TO DEVELOP A PROGRAM FOR THE IMPLEMENTATION OF FEES FOR BASE MEDICAL AND DENTAL SERVICES, IN ACCORDANCE WITH ARTICLE OF THE TEXAS CODE OF CRIMINAL PROCEDURE (CCP) At this time, Major Gus Reyna, Sheriff=s Department, explained that the Program would reduce the abuse of medical sick calls, transportation and medical runs for the Indigent Program, which would reduce the Medical costs for the County. He stated that the authorization of the Court would allow the Program to begin the implementation and noted that the fees could be modified. Commissioner Cascos stated that the hiring of Medical Professionals should be addressed before implementing said Program and added that the Program would have an effect on the Request for Qualifications Process, as to the number of Physicians submitting the Proposals. Mr. Mike Forbes, Purchasing Agent, notified the Court that Engineers and Architects were the only professions which qualified under Professional Services concerning the Request for Proposals Process. Commissioner Matz moved that the Sheriff=s Office be authorized to develop a Program for the implementation of fees for Base Medical and Dental Services, in accordance with Article , of the Texas Code of Criminal Procedure (CCP). The motion was seconded by Commissioner Benavides and carried unanimously.

He stated that the Grant would fund seven (7) months of operation and added that contributions would be sought from local entities and General Fund monies would be requested for the remainder of the Fiscal Year. Upon motion by Commissioner Matz, seconded by Commissioner Peña and carried unanimously, the Resolution was adopted authorizing Cameron County to submit a Continuation Application to the Lower Rio Grande Valley Development Council (LRGVDC) for the Cameron County Local Solid Waste Enforcement Program for Fiscal Year 1999, and the discussion of additional funding needed to operate a full year was acknowledged.
