Erath County commissioners will meet at 9 a.m. Monday in the county courtroom for their regular bi-monthly meeting.

Commissioners will discuss the 2012 effective tax rate and approve the proposed tax rate, as well as schedule public hearings.

Also on the agenda for consideration is a request from District Attorney Jason Cashon to change one full-time clerk position to a part-time position filled with two employees.

The EMS (emergency medical services) department will request permission to go out for bids for two monitor defibrillators.

Bids will be open for a vehicle for the juvenile probation department and truck for the fire department. Commissioners will also open bids for retrofitting lighting in county facilities.
