  1. These are some really significant projects that should benefit a lot of Hays County residents. Is there somewhere online where we can see more detailed explanations of the various improvements? I have a hard copy that was used when citizens rated the importance of various projects, but I don’t know if that is available in electronic form, or if there are more details elsewhere.

  2. As far as I know, this is the first time the list has been published on the Internet in any form. I think the county intends to have a Web site which may include more detailed information but I have not seen it. The Mercury will of course print more on these projects as things develop.

  3. Thank you for the update Brad. It was nice talking to you the other day about SH 21. Hope you were able to take a ride and see for yourself what we were talking about. Thanks again!

  4. Sounds about right, Charles. I bet you would vote against automobiles too if you could. I bet a horse and wagon is more to your anti-progress thinking!
