Military care package recipients send thanks

From Enterprise Staff The Families and Individuals Thanking Heroes (F.A.I.T.H.) Military Support Group of Livingston recently received some thank you letters from members of the military who received care packages from the group. Formed in June 2006 to provide encouragement and support to military personnel while they are away from home, the group gathers to pack boxes on the second Thursday of each month. Following are two of the letters recently received: “On behalf of the Contracting Office here in Djibouti, we wish to say thank you for the thoughtful care-package sent to us recently. Any taste or touch of home is always welcomed here as our deployments are long and the distance from family and friends great. It is humbling to know of such caring and patriotic citizens who keep us in their thoughts and prayers daily. Toilet paper and wet-wipes are my favorites.

Council discusses Point Blank street work

SJNT staff POINT BLANK — Streets were the main point of discussion at the monthly meeting of the Point Blank City Council on Jan. 10. Mayor Mark Wood said that it would take $7.5 million to fix every street in the city; however, the city takes in only $134,000 annually, and uses more than half — around $70,000 — for street repairs. “We’re trying to do the best we can with what we have,” he said. “Our streets will get fixed when they come up in rotation.” Wood said that more could be done with federal grants, but congressional gridlock means the city has been waiting 5 years for an infrastructure bill to get passed. “If it is ever done, it would help a great deal,” he said. In other business, the council: • adopted a short-term rental ordinance, and will start with notifying affected property owners and property managers; • accepted the last fiscal year’s audit findings; and • renewed all agreements with San Jacinto County for streets, animal control and emergency management services.
