All Hays County Judges Refuse to Sign Over Rides for 72 Hour Wait Period

By , 29 June, 2015, No Comment

I personally witnessed the county advise that there was a ban on the 72 hour over ride for marriages. Then, I followed up phone call. It was confirmed. Then, was patched thru to the Hays County contact for the press. Below is the correspondence. More than one trip back to the county office was made based on information provided to citizens via the county regarding the 72 hour over ride. This 72 hour over ride policy  was a moving target today. To that effect, were these residents’ Civil Rights were violated?

And as I’ve stated before, that’s an unknown. That is not something we track statistically and I have no idea which judges do or don’t routinely or even ever sign waivers. It is DISCRETIONARY by each judge.

Lisa,

Texas Family Code 2.204 allows a County Court at Law Judge or District Judge in Texas to sign a waiver for the 72-hour wait time on a marriage license “for good cause,” but it is entirely discretionary. I have no idea which judges are or aren’t doing waivers for any marriage licenses in Hays County or which ones typically do – you would have to ask each CCL and Dist Judge office how they handle requests in their offices. Also, JPs are not part of that – they can’t do it.

4.     How many meetings are remaining? Three – May 2 Western Neighborhoods; May 9 Heritage Neighborhoods; May 23 Willow Creek Neighborhoods  Will residents be able to attend meetings of other neighborhoods if they missed a meeting in their neighborhood? Yes, the meetings are open to the public.

Development Services – Code SMTX Rodeo Exempt from bidding process

By , 28 April, 2015, No Comment

So, taxpayer dollars are being paid to consultants for our land development code rewrite with no open bidding process. This is quite troubling. Especially when I am in receipt of email correspondence of what transpired last weekend the workshop(s). I will post follow up when it hits inbox.
