• Two cooperative agreements to make conservation works of improvement to diminish erosion and siltation of the rights-of-way: one  with Monty Branum for the right-of-way two miles north of State Highway 29 on Bailey Road and 3/4 miles east; and a second agreement with Paul Doyle for the right-of-way at Section 16, Township 2 South, Range 6 West.

• Acknowledgement of the official certificate of votes regarding the General Election, which took place Nov. 6. These official certificates will be submitted by the Stephens County Election Board.
