In the regular session of Bowie County Commissioners Court on May 27, Precinct 2 Commissioner Tom Whitten suggested the Court appoint a 5-person financial advisory board, with each member of the Court to pick one member. His motion was unanimously approved.
Today, the appointees were announced:
- Denis Washington
- Mike Sandefur
- Tim Ketchum
- Joe Dike
- Larry Davlin
The appointees were to be selected from people who reside within Bowie County, and Commissioners were free to select people from outside their precinct. According to Whitten, “Our Auditor will be present during all meetings and provide any and all materials and/or information they deem necessary to complete their findings and recommendations. Hopefully they can complete this before our 2014-2015 budget for consideration.”
