Report on the meeting in Cooper: Sulphur Mobility Authority Waiting NCTCOG Study
Finally someone recognizes that this project has been on the fast track with VERY little public support. The RTC has basically told TTC/Public Werks and Hunt County that they need to slow down and follow procedure. RTC indicates that this project has NOT done due diligence in informing the public and determining if this project is really needed. The link below is to a video of the RTC meeting on March 14, 2013. I am including a list of the relevant segments so you do not have to watch the entire video, unless you are inclined to do so. After clicking the link below, click on Item #10 on the right hand side of the page. Then you can skip to the following segments.
minutes 7:50-18:36 (This is the discussion segment. Judge Horn is in the red shirt, Michael Morris is the gentleman speaking on behalf of COG, and Duncan Webb (sitting close to Judge Horn) is a commissioner from Collin County. Webb is in favor of the move by COG to study this further. Collin Co. is not on board with the toll road.)
Check out this event scheduled for March 12 in Austin. We need our voice to be heard by our elected officials. Phone calls and letters are good, but showing up in person is even better. Click on the following link.

If you’d like to speak with the public radio station in Commerce about this issue, email firstname.lastname@example.org with your contact info and we’ll get back to you. Your Station, 88.9 KETR! will be at tomorrow’s meeting in Commerce.
The proposed toll road will be open for discussion with the Commissioner as the last agenda item for that town hall. This is your chance to provide feedback to her about the proposed toll road and its impacts to your Precinct.
Collin County Commissioner’s Court meets every Monday at 1:30 pm with the exception of holidays or a fifth Monday. They will take public comments on any subject at the beginning of each meeting.

This coming Monday there is an item on the agenda to brief the court on the tollroad and NETEX meeting. Please prepare your 3 minute statements so you can make the most of your time with the court.
