Possible Increases: The City of Liberty, as are most municipalities, is in the middle of preparing a new budget. Liberty City Manager Gary Broz said there are some rather big ticket items that are needed in the city, and those obviously require funding. Mr. Broz said, in the new budget he will present to council, will be a proposal for water and sewer rate increases, as well as a recommendation for a 3 cent tax increase per $100 of property value. The Liberty budget must be in place by the first of October. The City of Liberty fiscal year runs October 1 through September 30.

LISD Bus Security: In the wake of recent break-ins at the Liberty ISD bus barn, trustees have approved spending more than $24,000 to upgrade security at that site. Chief LISD Financial Officer Julie Hebert said two recent break-ins have cost the district thousands of dollars. We've reported wiring harnesses have been stolen from 5 buses, each one cost between 12 and 15 thousand dollars for those repairs. The upgraded security will include improved lighting, fencing repair as well as adding motion detectors, signage, cameras and an audible alarm. That work is slated to be done for the bus barn next to Memorial Football Stadium in an effort to deter thieves.

****************************************************

VFW Van to VA: Several years ago the Liberty VFW Post started a program to provide transportation to and from the VA in Houston for military veterans. Driver Richard Williamson said the bus leaves the Liberty VFW each Tuesday, Wednesday, and Thursday morning at 5:45. From there, they stop in Dayton, and Cleveland, before going on into Houston. If you'd like to learn more, contact the Liberty County Veterans Service Office at (936) 336-4558 ext. 235.

****************************************************

Refuge Hunts: Various tracts in Liberty County that are a part of the Trinity River National Wildlife Refuge will be open for big game hunting of deer and hogs, as well as upland game hunting for squirrel and rabbit.
