·         Commissioners reduced auto registration fees on Parker County residents by $6 per vehicle on a motion by County Judge Mark Riley and a unanimous vote by Commissioners Court. The opportunity to reduce the fees arose from a termination of the county’s participation in the Low Income Vehicle Repair Assistance, Retrofit, and Accelerated Vehicle Retirement Program (LIRAP). Funding for the program was terminated by Governor Greg Abbott. Due to the fact that the county still has $683,000 in funds that will be carried forward, Parker County residents whose vehicles do not pass the state’s emissions testing requirements will still be able to access.
