Denton County Precinct One Commissioner Hugh Coleman has requested a special-called meeting of the Commissioners Court for 4:45 p.m. on Friday, June 28, 2019, at the Courthouse-on-the-Square to discuss and consider withdrawing his request for redistricting.
After Tuesday’s Commissioners Court meeting, Commissioner Coleman met with County Judge Andy Eads. After extensive discussion, Judge Eads agreed to advocate for additional resources and provide help to satisfy the needs of the growing Precinct One.
“Over the last 10 years Precinct One has grown tremendously. The 2018 estimated census numbers show Denton County has grown 29 percent since 2010 and, in my opinion; they’ve all come to that area,” Coleman said.
“I have tried hard to make sure our residents get their fair share of funding,” he said. “I believe this is a fair and equitable resolution.”
Eads agreed on the resolution.
“It has always been my intent to do what is best for the entire county, and I believe we can accomplish that through our budget process,” he said.
