The filling of the vacant county road supervisor position will be addressed again by the Dawson County Commissioners Court in a special called meeting this coming week.
     The Commissioners Court will convene at 2:30 p.m. Monday for that meeting in the County Courtroom of Dawson County Courthouse, North 1st Street and Main Avenue, in Lamesa.
    A closed, executive session to discuss personnel matters, followed by possible action to be taken once the meeting has been reopened to the public are the only items on the agenda for Monday’s special called meeting.
    Dawson County officials spent over an hour in a closed, executive session last Tuesday, discussing how to proceed with filling the vacancy created by the unexpected death of County Road Supervisor Doug Isaacs.
    Isaacs, 61, died on Monday, April 30, at Medical Arts Hospital.
    He has been the only person to serve in the position of county road supervisor since the maintenance of all Dawson County roads was consolidated into a single department in 2011.
    While no action was taken at last Tuesday’s special called meeting, which only had one item on the agenda, County Judge Foy O’Brien said the county actively is seeking to fill that vacancy and the goal is to do it as soon as possible.
