Douglas Retires: In rather unexpected news, yesterday, Dayton’s City Manager, David Douglas, announced his retirement from the City of Dayton and has submitted his letter of resignation. Douglas served as the City Manager for the City of Dayton for eleven years. In a press release, the City Council and staff thanked the veteran city manager for his dedicated service to the City of Dayton, and wishes him the best of luck in his future endeavors.
LISD: The Liberty school board unanimously agreed, Tuesday night, to move forward with issuing the remaining $10.465 million for phase-two work connected with the $33.5 million bond package approved by LISD’s voters back in May 2015. Tuesday’s action did not actually approve funding; instead, Liberty ISD trustees set in motion what’s needed to take place in order to make a final decision this April.
Extra Jobs: Liberty County Sheriff Bobby Rader said construction workers from Brown & Root use the park-n-ride location on State Highway 146 south of Dayton to park their personal vehicles. Then, they are bused to a nearby construction site. Because of the dangerous traffic conditions that exist in the morning as workers arrive and in the afternoon as they leave work, Brown & Root contracts with law enforcement officers at $50 per hour to provide traffic control. Sheriff Rader points out that his deputies are allowed to use their assigned patrol vehicle in Liberty County while working off-duty security jobs. However, he said deputies do remain on-call during that time. Even though county deputies are allowed to use their patrol vehicles while working off-duty, Sheriff Rader said the benefits to public safety far outweigh the minimal expense.
DISD: Tuesday night, Dayton ISD school trustees reviewed and approved a total of 15 new course offerings, giving Dayton students more choices and options. These new courses include advanced placement world history, psychology, sociology, AG equipment designs and fabrication as well as fashion design, introduction of culinary arts, principles of construction, American Sign Language and others.
Obituaries: Wilbur Nugent, 89 of Liberty. Service is tomorrow at 2 p.m. at Faith & Family Funeral Service in Batson.
