County approves CARES Act RFP, new Precinct 4 subdivisions

Medina County commissioners authorized a request for proposals for administrative services for the CARES Act grants, and gave final approval of two Precinct 4 subdivisions during the commissioners court meeting on June 18.
Medina County is receiving $55 via the Coronavirus Aid, Relief, and Economic Security (CARES) Act for every county resident who does not reside inside city limits. That figure adds up to approximately $1.68 million.
Funds must be spent on one of six categories of eligible expenditures: medical expenses; public health expenses; payroll expenses for public safety, public health, health care, human services, and similar employees; expenses of actions to comply with COVID-19 public health measures; expenses associated with the provision of economic support in connection with COVID-19; and any other COVID-19 – related expenses.
County Judge Chris Schuchart said that 75 percent of the funds must be spent in categories that relate to public health.
“But there’s only so much PPE we can buy,” Schuchart said.
Once at least 75 percent of the grant money has been used for public health, the remaining funds can be used to help individual businesses.
A Public Notice advertising the RFP for administrative services is in this week’s edition of The Devine News.
Commissioners also gave final approval to the Devine Oaks and Chacon Creek subdivisions, both located in Precinct 4 near Devine.
The Devine Oaks subdivision is located near the intersection of CR 7711 and CR 777, while the Chacon Creek subdivision is located near the intersection of CR 7611 and CR 7714.
