The Yorktown City Council have finally seen some long range projects come to an end and are ready to continue in the journey of cleaning up the city.
“The water well is fully operational. We are waiting for Texas Commission Environmental Quality to come and take samples of their own to take to their own laboratory,” said Yorktown City Administrator Robert Mendez. “They will not be here until mid January.”
The street project is complete. The city is insuring that the warranty work is finished before full payment is to be made.
Judge James O’Connell was appointed to fill the vacancy of Yorktown’s Municipal Court. The unexpired term of office will end Sept. 30, 2016.
“In regards to a new Fire Marshall, the city is still looking,” Mendez said. “We received some applications but they want too much money. As it stands, the council took no action.”
