Gregg County commissioners on Monday renewed annual contracts with two nonprofit organizations related to children's welfare.
Both the Parenting Resource Center, which teaches parenting skills and provides education on the effects of divorce on children, and the daycare SeeSaw Children's Place, were budgeted to receive $8,000 apiece in the 2012-13 county spending plan.
The contracts are for one year and entitle the county to review financial records of the two entities.
In other action, the court agreed to sell four acres at Maude Cobb Convention and Activity Center to the city of Longview for use as an arboretum.
The land previously was taken in an unpaid tax seizure but did not sell at public auction. The city will pay $1 for the land.
