A resolution to allow Lamar County to use borrowed money to replenish funds spent in the next 18 months on capital improvement projects narrowly passed Commissioners Court on a 3-2 vote Monday.

"This allows us to decide in the next 18 months if we might want to issue certificates of obligation to replace money from whence it came," Superville said after the meeting. "It does not mean we are going to borrow the money; it just gives us an option if some of the repair projects cost more than we anticipate."
