CHESTER – Chester city council approved several measures for GrantWorks to proceed with improvements on their grants at their rescheduled meeting, Tuesday evening, Oct. 11. Most of these will be road improvements.
The city seemed to have had a record gas arrears, causing them to lock off 14 who did not keep up their commitments. Mayor Robert Poynter facilitated a substantial discussion on profit and loss from gas usage and timings with the readings of the supplier. A lot of work had been done.
The city agreed to renew their agreement the Railroad Commission as a gas supplier.
City Secretary Balela Mahaffey presented an option for her to take a webinar with the Texas Secretary of State’s office, and council opted to pay for that.
Mahaffey was asked about signs by the city park. The city had no ordinance, and there appeared no need to create one. As long as the signs were no “in the park” or on the city fences, they decided to leave enforcement to TxDOT.
