County commissioners are meeting today in a regular session with a lengthy agenda, which includes a public hearing on the Kaufman County Clerk's records archive plan. This plan establishes a filing fee of $10 to be collected on all non-court documents presented for recording or filing, to raise revenue for the preservation and restoration of older county records that have priceless historical value, according to a description of the plan prepared by Kaufman County Clerk Laura Hughes.
Commissioners are also set to consider how voting will be conducted for the November general election. Proposals are to vote all electronic, both early voting and election day; vote electronic during early voting and use paper ballots on election day as was done in the March primary election; or vote all electronic during early voting, and on election day designate 15 sites as electronics, and 15 as paper.
The use of photographic equipment and other automated speed detecting devices to automatically determine school zone speed violations and the imposition of civil penalties on the vehicle owner for the violations, is up for discussion and action today by the commissioner's court. Also, commissioners will consider approval of a similar plan for school bus stop arm violations using video for identification. Both plans will impose civil fines for assumed violators, and the imposition of a late fee for those not responsing to the notice of the civil penalty within 30 days.
Rules and regulations governing roadside solicitation by non-profit charitable organizations, and the permitting process, will be considered today by commissioners.
