Governor Visits County: Texas Governor Greg Abbott visited Dayton yesterday along with Texas A&M Chancellor John Sharp who has been tasked by the governor to lead the state’s Hurricane Harvey recovery efforts. Governor Abbott told KSHN Radio he was touring the region to see storm damage and check on the progress of recovery efforts. Both men said those recovery efforts are going well. John Sharp said one reason the state has been able to speed up recovery across the affected region is the use of local extension agents. Among those meeting with the governor were Liberty County Judge Jay Knight, Dayton Mayor Jeff Lambright, Liberty Mayor Carl Pickett, State Rep. Ernest Bailes, and State Senator Robert Nichols. Also on hand was Liberty County Agent Alexis Cordova.

Dayton Annexation: Dayton City Council approved the city’s latest property annexation Monday night. Dayton City Planner Kimberly Judge said the plan was to add another 3,200 acres to the city’s limits, broken up into four separate areas. Ms. Judge said the owners of roughly 2,200 acres of that property to be annexed applied for and received an agricultural exemption and will not be annexed as long as they maintain their property’s agricultural status. Therefore, Dayton City Council approved annexing the remaining 1,000 acres of land located either close – or adjacent - to the path of the Grand Parkway-I-99 through Liberty County. An important note, though the agricultural exempt property is not a part of the city, it is still within Dayton’s extra-territorial jurisdiction or ETJ and so city government can still exercise some authority over that property.
****************************************************
Bikes for Christmas: Liberty County Bikes for Christmas will hold a garage sale on Saturday, October 21, at 8 a.m. in the Prosperity Bank parking lot on Highway 90 in Dayton. They are currently accepting donations for that fundraiser. To donate items to the garage sale, call Tammy Alexander or Mary Cook at 936-258-7621. The mission of Liberty County Bikes for Christmas is twofold - to assist county residents year round who experience unexpected tragedies and losses and to insure all Liberty County children feel the joy of Christmas.
