A SEVERE THUNDERSTORM WATCH has been issued for Austin, Brazos, Burleson, Grimes, Houston, Lee, Madison, Montgomery, San Jacinto, Trinity, Walker, Waller, and Washington Counties until 8pm. Severe thunderstorms are possible with large hail and strong, damaging winds being the main concern. A brief, isolated tornado threat cannot be ruled out, as well.
Brazos County commissioners have appointed an interim judge for county court at law number one.
Attorney Bill Ballard, the legal council for the County commissioners, has been appointed to that position.
As you may recall, the position was vacated after long time incumbent Randy Michel pleaded guilty to abuse of official capacity.
Ballard starts the position February 1st, and will remain the interim judge until the November elections.
