Address signs top topics at county court

The Ellis County Commissioners’ Court facilitated a discussion Monday evening on whether or not to require properties in unincorporated areas to display numbered address signs.
House Bill 2665, which passed in the last session of the Texas Legislature, amends the Transportation Code to give the commissioners’ court of a county the authority to adopt and impose standards for the design and installation of address signs of unincorporated properties.

The bill also specifies that not complying with the order is a class C misdemeanor, and punishable by a fine if a county decides to adopt the standards.

The Court does not have to adopt the standards, and held the discussion to get feedback from members of the public.

Precinct 4 Commissioner Ron Brown said having an address posted at a property is important for law enforcement officers in an emergency situation, but he doesn’t think the county should mandate the display of an address.
