Electric Upgrades: We have reported the multi-million dollar upgrades to the city of Liberty’s aging electrical distribution system have been under way for sometime now. Liberty City Manager Gary Broz said, at this point, city electrical crews have been busy replacing the majority of Feeder #6 power poles due to age or damage. One big addition to the city’s electric power system – the express feeder line - is being installed now. That project, provided to the city of Liberty by the Sam Rayburn Municipal Power Agency, will supply an important back up to the city’s electrical system. As it is now, power for the entire system comes through a single feeder from the substation, and the city loses all electricity if that feeder is interrupted. Mr. Broz said the new feeder will act as a redundant line for back up.
Fatality Accident: A 26-year-old Dayton man died in a Friday morning traffic accident in Jefferson County. DPS Public Information Officer Stephanie Davis identified the deceased as Joshua Caleb Crunk. According to DPS reports, the crash occurred on State Highway 73 in Jefferson County. DPS reports indicate that a tractor-trailer rig was traveling eastbound on SH 73. The driver of that 18-wheeler, 75-year-old Jesus Chapa, slowed to make a right turn when his trailer was impacted by a passenger vehicle driven by the Dayton man. Justice of the Peace Ray Chesson pronounced 26-year-old Joshua Crunk dead at the scene. No other injuries were reported.
TIRZ: Dayton City Council met in a special joint meeting with Liberty County Commissioners Court last Thursday to discuss the creation of what is a called a Tax Increment Reinvestment Zone or TIRZ. These zones are used by municipalities to help fund future infrastructure improvement projects. Some other entities – such as counties – can also participate in a TIRZ if the city approves that participation. Thursday’s meeting concerned only the creation of a TIRZ to finance infrastructure development at the Gulf Inland Logistics Park along Hwy 146 South. It is important to note, a TIRZ is not a separate taxing entity and cannot levy an additional tax. Whatever tax rate is in effect outside the reinvestment zone is the same inside that zone.
Obituaries: Joshua Caleb Crunk, 26, of Dayton. Service is 1 p.m. Tuesday at Sterling Funeral Home.
