Welcome to the official website for Comanche County Government. Here you will find information on many programs and services, as well as subjects of interest to residents and visitors. We are here to offer assistance in making Comanche County a great place to live, work and play.
On Monday, the Comanche County commissioners approved payment to J. W. Doolin, attorney at law, for his services in the settlements with Goodyear Tire and Rubber Company and Sanders Heights Apartments. This marks the end of a long court struggle. Goodyear protested the assessment of their property value for 2011, 2012, 2013 and 2014. The initial assessment under Richard Strickland evaluated Goodyear at $92.3 million. After having a private commercial appraisal company assess the value of their property, Goodyear came back that the value was only worth $23 million. The four year court struggle has finally ended with a settlement of $45 million. Sanders Heights Apartment contested their original property assessment of $3 million in 2014. They have also reached a settlement at $1.4 million.
The Elgin Volunteer Fire Department will be hosting its 12th annual Crawds 'n Rods event this Saturday. They'll be serving crawdads at 11am, with bands playing all day.
