Development authority chair presents update on 2018
FB DCN Government County
Development Authority of Dawson County Board Cchairman Brian Trapnell presented his final update of the year to the Dawson County Board of Commissioners on Dec. 20, giving commissioners a breakdown of the progress the development authority has made in the past year, including a new partnership with the Dawson County Chamber of Commerce. When the staff of the development authority quit in September of 2017 due to the board of commissioners' refusal to allocate the authority any funds for 2018, the authority entered into a short-term contract for services with the chamber of commerce. In February 2018 the board of commissioners voted to allocate $135,000 to the authority so that it could continue to operate for the remainder of the year.
