Liberty County Commissioner Mike McCarty has been as responsible as County Judge Craig McNair has been serious in taking on the job of securing the courthouse.
McCarty was given the duel job of orchestrating the stripping down of the courthouse grounds and the beautification of it. To some that may have sounded mutually exclusive, but Commissioner McCarty has been very diligent in his approach. He has been careful in the way the over one hundred year old oaks were trimmed. He also used the opportunity to level the grounds and soon the public will see the best grass that has ever covered the grounds.
McCarty also took advantage of the opportunity and got approval to improve the drainage around the courthouses outside walls. The improved drainage will help inhibit the growth of mold and the drain itself will be easy to take care of and pleasant to the eye.
Of course Liberty Dispatch looks forward to the completion of this project just as everyone else should, but we also believe Commissioner McCarty had already improved the courthouse square weeks ago when he removed the reserved parking sign former County Commissioner Todd Fontenot had erected for himself.
Keep up the good work Mike!
