County joins TEX-21 initiative

Franklin County will join the TEX-21 (Transportation Excellence for the 21st Century) initiative at the urging of citizens and the Franklin County Industrial Foundation.

Executive Director for FCIF Bob McFarland, spoke to the Court directly about the benefits. The Foundation’s executive committee last week sent the Commissioner’s Court  a letter outlining the need for solidarity on issues affecting transportation and the upgrade of I-30. TEX-21 is leading the way in seeking funding for that to happen.See the Aug. 14 edition of the Mount Vernon Optic-Herald for more details about this action.
