County Budget: Liberty County Commissioners approved the county budget for the 2017-18 fiscal year during their regular meeting yesterday. The new countywide budget provides for an increase in several departments, including the sheriff’s office. Sheriff Bobby Rader has an overall budget increase of $1.2 million. That includes the addition of six deputy positions. The total Liberty County budget projects spending of $43.6 million dollars, with a county income of $41 million. The $2.5 million difference comes from the county’s fund balance. County Auditor Dwayne Gott said the budget was built using conservative revenue figures and liberal expense projections.

Rainfall from Harvey: KSHN Radio maintains official records for the U.S. Weather Service in south Liberty County. From Fri., Aug. 25, through Wed., Aug. 30, Hurricane Harvey dumped a total of 41.75 inches of rain on the City of Liberty. The average yearly rainfall for this area is 61.25 inches. The largest daily rainfall from Hurricane Harvey in Liberty came in the 24-hour reporting period from 5:30 a.m. on Sun., Aug. 27, to 5:30 a.m., Mon., Aug. 28. On that day, 17.9 inches of rain was recorded at the official gauge at the KSHN studios. Taking a look at the Trinity River gauge at the Hwy 90 bridge in Liberty, the crest in the aftermath of Harvey occurred on Sept. 1. On that day, the river was measured at 32.74 feet above sea level. That tops the previous crest of 31 feet set back in 1994. During both the flood of ‘94 and this year’s flooding from Harvey, the release at the Lake Livingston Dam topped out at 110,600 cfs.
****************************************************
Tetanus Shots: Tetanus is a dangerous bacterial infection that is traditionally common after large scale flooding. However, it is very preventable with a tetanus vaccination. The Liberty-Dayton Regional Medical Center is offering free tetanus shots to the general public. Hospital Administrator and CEO Matt Thornton said anyone who has not had a tetanus vaccine in the last 10 years, or those who have recently been exposed to potentially contaminated flood water or debris, should get one now. Free shots are available Monday through Saturday from 8 a.m. to 8 p.m. Just come in the clinic entrance on the Travis Street side of the hospital. To find out more, call 936-334-4211.
