We continue With answers to several questions con-.
cerhing The Optional Road Law of 4647 asked in an aar-
, lier editorial.
Now: Who favors it and why?
%e unit system hasten recommended by virtually
every advocate of good government for all counties except
those where the business of buUdibg and maintaining
county roads has become so big that adoption of business/
like methods and hiring of skilled personnel already has
been forced on the commissioners couri.f;In the heavily
populated areas—-Harris county for example—where top-
notch commissioner material is available and more oftth
elected than not, it doesn't seem to, work out too WelL v
However, alt such areas already are using moat of the
practices set up under the system so the question of its
adaption there is largely academic. / ^
Here In Orange count/ the system has long been ad-
vocated bv a group known as the Citizens Advisory com-
mittee. Your commissioner may Tell you this committee
is a meddlesome group of sel#-appointed individuals with-
out legal status which/acting only in the interests of its
Ni^n members, tries to run the business of the commiss-
ioiisi^ court. That is not correct. j
This is how the Citizens Advisory committee came in-
to being: feo^je years ago the Orange county commission-
ers got themselves into a bad jam financially^! appeal-
ed to some of th^ mote successful business men to get
them out of it. The businessmen expressed willingness to
comply with the request but asked that a committee^ of
leading citizens from throughout the county be set
Purpose of this group was to a^K^se and assist the mem-
bers of the court wherever possible, The commissioners
approved the committee, got out of their jam—and promp-
tly forgot to be grateful for the committe^ assistancp.
The Citizens Advisory group still continifeg to hold
regular meetings as provided in the initial agreement;
still offers suggestions, advice and help to the court when-
ever it can. The commissioners usually ignore the com-
mittee except, as was the case once this year, when they,
*~nt themselves into a jam and need financial advice or
■-reporters have coyereda.good many meetings;
of the Citibstjs Advisory committee. Never have these
sessions left a$y (conclusion except that the members of
the group, who, incidentally, pay 'a very substantial per-
centage of the county's taxes, wish to obtain for the coun-
ty as many miles of all-weather roads per tax dollar spent
as possible.. The members of the committee from Vidor,
Orangefield, Mauriceville and other outlying points in the
county are almost invariably in complete accord with
members from the City of Orange. And alT agree—without
exception—that adoption of the unit system by Orange
county would be a good thing.
