Bond election topic of board meeting

By Chris Edwardsnews@tylercountybooster.com WOODVILLE – The recent Woodville ISD bond election results were canvassed at the regular meeting of the WISD Board of Trustees. The canvassing was the first action item on Monday evening’s agenda, but prior to that process, the bond was the topic of two speakers during the public forum portion of the meeting. The $47.8 million bond package is for a series of district-wide improvements and passed in the May 7 special election by a 51.20% majority.

Angerstein explains violation notices

By Jan Whitejan@hccourier.com CROCKETT – On May 12, City Administrator John Angerstein took to Facebook to reach out to Crockett residents about some notices sent out by the City. The city is required to take water samples to ensure that a certain level of quality is maintained. This involves sending the water samples to a laboratory that, in turn, forwards those results to the Texas Commission on Environmental Quality (TCEQ), which oversees the safety of public water systems. The tests ensure that there are no contaminants in the water and that the water systems maintain the proper amount of disinfectant. The results of this testing are recorded in the Annual Consumer Confidence Report. This report is available at the City Hall and on their website. A link to the site is sent to residents on their water bills to let them know that the report is available. However, sometimes certain violations require public notices, such as the boil-water notices. Angerstein wanted to use the video…

Results canvassed - Turnout Poor

From Enterprise Staff The May 7 election results were canvassed by the Polk County Commissioners Court during a special called meeting Tuesday in which the Court approved accepting the results. The Court was only canvassing the two proposed constitutional amendments as the individual cities and school districts canvassed their own elections, Polk County Clerk Schelana Hock said. According to Hock, 2,214 people – or 5.42% of the county’s registered voters – turned out to vote in the election.
