He noted commissioners will likely decline taking part in the program, though, as it would result in the loss of local control over the renovation.
Commissioners asked Baker to contact the historical commission for input and revisit the issue at their next meeting.
Burn ban remains lifted
Palo Pinto County Fire Marshal Buddy Harwell expressed his feeling a burn ban is still unwarranted, given the county's current condition.
"We don't need one," he told commissioners Monday morning.
"Everything has been good, even on windy days."
He noted the green vegetation, thanks in large part to last week's precipitation, has resulted in favorable conditions, adding he has not responded to a fire in recent days.
Commissioners agreed with his assessment and determined the burn ban should remain lifted.
In other business, commissioners voted to:
• Approve Precinct 2 road maintenance project with the City of Graford and approve reimbursement payments.
• Rescind previous action and approve request to advertise for bids for the sale of the old Precinct 1 barn in Mineral Wells.
• Approve the purchase of five replacement phones.
• Acknowledge the appointment of Steven E. Watson as County Auditor.
