Smith County Commissioners Court Discusses Road Report, Approves Citizens Review Committee
Charlie Varnell, senior engineer with Atkins North America, presented a report to the Commissioners Court on its Road and Bridge Inventory Analysis and Five-Year Capital Improvement Plan.


The Smith County Commissioners Court on June 30, 2015, approved a Citizens Review Committee to review the county’s road plan and to make recommendations on its implementation and a list of roadways to consider for repairs, improvements and maintenance.

Charlie Varnell, senior engineer with Atkins North America, presented a report to the Commissioners Court on its Road and Bridge Inventory Analysis and Five-Year Capital Improvement Plan. The Commissioners Court hired Atkins last year to conduct the study.

“It provides us with a list of roads from the worst to satisfactory and recommend what we need to do to them, what the cost will be and which ones to do first,” County Engineer Frank Davis said.

County Judge Joel Baker and each of the four commissioners recommended someone to serve on the Citizens Review Committee. They include Gene Shull and Frances Kay, owners of construction businesses; James Gregory, retired from Delek Refining; Jimmy Hawley, Lindale business owner; and Steve Patterson, a road and bridge worker from Longview.

 The committee will also be made up of Commissioner Jeff Warr, Frank Davis, Road Administrator Doug Nicholson, County Administrator Leonardo Brown, as well as yet to be named representatives from the City of Tyler and the Texas Department of Transportation.

There are 1,904 roads in the Smith County database, 1,182 miles of roadway and 2,357 lane miles (the 10th highest county in Texas).

Leonardo Brown Honored for Achievement
Several Smith County departments surprised County Administrator Leonardo Brown with a lunch in his honor on July 1, 2015.

The Smith County Clerk’s Office surprised County Administrator Leonardo Brown with a lunch in his honor July 1, 2015. Brown recently completed the Certified Public Manager program, a nationally accredited comprehensive management development program specifically for managers in federal, state and local government. Brown completed an 18-month long comprehensive course at Stephen F. Austin State University to become a Certified Public Manager.

The Smith County Commissioners Court recognized Brown for the accomplishment last month.

“It’s no secret Smith County loves Leonardo and several offices have come together today to give honor where honor is due,” County Clerk Karen Phillips said.

Brown was hired as HR director for Smith County in 2009 and he became county administrator in October.
