Victoria TABC office to close in October

Victoria County Commissioners are set to review and approve local leasing agreements and a 9-1-1 agreement.

The Victoria Office of Emergency management recommended the Interlocal Agreement for E9-1-1 Services between the Golden Crescent Regional Planning Commission and Victoria County. The E9-1-1 services will be associated with the Victoria Emergency Management Emergency Operations Center.

In the event, that the E9-1-1 services become inoperable at the Primary Servicing Answering Points (PSAP’s), the VEM EOC would be used to continue E9-1-1 service operations.

This Interlocal Agreement for E9-1-1 Services is for the fiscal year 2018-2019.

Commissioner’s will ratify the fiscal year 2018 Victim Coordinator and Liaison Grant contracts.

This grant funds the Victim Assistance Coordinators in the prosecutor officers and the Crime Victim Liaisons in law enforcement agencies.

The grant funds $42,000 and requires a local match of $21,928.81 for the District Attorney’s office Victim Assistance Coordinator.

The grant funds $42,000 and requires a local match of $10,766 for Victoria County Sheriff’s office Crime Victim Liaison.

The Texas Alcoholic Beverage Commission is terminating its lease effective October 15, 2017.

The state of Texas has been hit by a recession. The agency is facing budget cuts for the fiscal years 2018 and 2019. TABC and other state agencies are faced with large mandatory budget reductions, which must include overhead expenses.

As a result, TABC must close the Victoria Office.

Commissioners will approve appointments of several election judges and alternates. The appointments are for one year and will begin September 1, 2017.
