"That is an area that over the years has become somewhat of a crime problem for our city," Ferguson said.
Clay Smith, TxDOT’s district transportation planning engineer, said the county could bid the project without the lighting.
Lighting could then be added with any remaining funds or with county funds, using a bid process or a state contractor.
|| “That’s something you may still avant to weigh,” Smith said.‘“It may be,.beneficial for the state contractor , to do it, or it may be beneficial for ; the county to do it."
City Council member Brenda Freeman told the commissioners that she has opposed the project from the j beginning.
Freeman said restoring the bridge Cis not among her top three priorities,
so she believes the money should not be spent.
A local resident questioned the value of the restoration, saying taxpayers will be paying for it for a long time.
“I don’t believe there will be IO people a day going across that bridge once it’s finished," he said. “If it comes in over budget, let’s kill the whole thing.”
Commissioner Cristina Zamora favors the project and said the cost '<of demolishing the bridge would be about the same as restoring it as a pedestriancroMMtg. •• ~
The commissioners voted to proceed with the project’s design phase without the installation of electrical lighting, which will be taken up later.
The commissioners will reevaluate the project after the bids come in.

Commission faces no charges over oxponsos
MIDLAND, Texas (AP) — A grand jury has decided not to return any indictments against officials of the Permian Basin Regional Planning Commission, which had allegedly not followed state guidelines in the handling of travel expenses.
Among other things, they allegedly spent $700 in commission money at a topless bar in Austin.
The ruling was made public Thursday after an independent audit of travel expenses by the commission.
The Texas House of
Representatives Appropriations Committee turned up a number of questionable expenses while conducting a study of local councils of government. Elms, Farts & Co. was then hired to perform the audit of the commission’s expenses over the past three years.
District Attorney Al Schorre said the ruling is not a declaration of innocence, but means that no criminal activity could be determined by the review.

been ordered to witness an autopsy, probably of a gunshot victim, as part of his probated sentence.
District Judge W.R. Voigt sentenced Robert Perez, 19, to five years probation and ordered him to spend three months in the Harris County boot camp in addition to viewing the autopsy.
The judge said during Wednesday’s sentencing that viewing the autopsy would give Perez a close-up look at the effects of violent crime. .
Perez was convicted of firing three shots into a house on July 18 in a gang squabble.
Christian group may taka over pra-ratoaao program
HOUSTON (AP) — A fundamentalist Christian group founded by Watergatge figure Charles Colson may soon be allowed to run pre-release programs at a minimum-security state prison unit near Sugar Land.
The measure was to be considered today by state corrections officials. It was approved by the board’s programs committee Thursday.
The program, which would not cost the state anything, is part of an effort to keep paroled and released convicts from returning to prison.
UT board passes policy requiring tenure review
DALLAS (AP) — Tenure, which provides job security for professors, isn’t as secure anymore for University of Texas professors.
The UT System Board of Regents approved guidelines Thursday for periodic evaluation of tenured professors, which includes provisions for their dismissal if their performance is deemed unsatisfactory.
Some faculty members were disappointed.
“I think the faculty in the UT System is extremely upset about this,” said Charles Zucker, executive director of the Texas Faculty
Association. “They see it as reneging on an agreement they thought they had with the UT System.”
Six professors, including Zucker, spoke out against the new policy at the meeting, saying it could threaten academic freedom and put professors at the mercy of university politics.
“We will continue to have the best computer systems and the best technology and the best medicine and the best everything else as long as we can continue to maintain academic freedom in this country,” said Michael Sicilian©, chairman-elect of the UT System Faculty Advisory Council.
