Darrell Hall neighborhood news: It is very important that Darrell Hall property owners let us know their thoughts and concerns as the process comes closer to implementation. Please visit our Facebook page and share your “two cents.”

Grimes County Commissioner Chad Mallett wrote us… “After research by our County Engineer, Mr. Harry Walker, P.E., it has been determined that there are at least 17 separate Darrell Hall subdivisions in the County. These subdivisions total more than 20.5 miles of unpaved roadways.

“Mr. Walker performed a fairly detailed estimate of what would be required to bring the roads up to County standards. The cost for labor, materials and equipment to construct the road base, ditches, and chip seal work is approximately $301,000 per mile.

“I am also looking into creating Road Districts (Sec 257.021, referenced below) for each subdivision as an alternative to Chapter 253. Road Districts have the ability to issue bonds with a majority vote.”
