****************************************************
Dayton Tax Rate: We’ve reported Dayton City Council held the first of two public meetings last Friday to discuss with the public the city’s 2018 Fiscal Year Budget and tax rate. A citizen’s petition for a rollback election requires the city hold such an election. That will be May 5. Dayton voters will have the option of lowering the city’s property tax rate from 67 cents per $100 of property value down to the rollback rate of 65.5 cents per $100 value. Dayton city officials stressed that someone with a $100,000 home would see an annual $14.30 increase in taxes if the rollback fails. The final meeting about the upcoming Tax Rollback Election in Dayton is this Thursday at 6 p.m. at the Dayton Community Center, 801 South Cleveland Street.
****************************************************
Refuge Restoration: Entergy Texas, the U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service, and The Conservation Fund have teamed up to plant more than 45,000 trees at Trinity River National Wildlife Refuge as part of a two-year initiative to restore 100 acres of bottomland hardwood forest. Those forests support abundant populations of bald eagles, white-tailed deer, alligators, freshwater turtles, river otters plus a variety of bird species. Refuge Manager Stuart Marcus said, without Entergy’s financial commitment, a restoration project of this size would never get off the ground.
****************************************************
Rotary Honors: During a recent Dayton Rotary Club meeting, three people were named as Paul Harris Fellows. That recognition acknowledges individuals who contribute, or who have had donated in their name, $1,000 to the Rotary Foundation of Rotary International. Honored were Rotarian Dr. Jessica Johnson plus two non-Rotarians, Richard Till and Richard Brown, who have both assisted the club with fundraisers.
****************************************************
Moorman Signs with Lamar: Liberty Panther offensive lineman John Ryder Moorman is headed to Lamar University as what’s called a signed preferential walk-on for the Cardinals. Liberty Athletic Director and Head Football Coach Chad Taylor said he has no doubt that John Moorman will, at some point, become a full scholarship player for the Lamar Cardinals. He is the son of John and Regina Moorman of Liberty.
