Hurricane Season Forecast: Hurricane season starts June 1, and forecasters are predicting a slightly above average probability of a major hurricane making landfall in the United States this year. Researchers at Colorado State University recently released their annual forecast for the 2018 hurricane season that runs from June 1 through November 30. According to their predictions for 2018, there will be 14 named tropical storms with seven reaching hurricane force. The good folks at Colorado State forecast that three of those storms will reach major status with sustained winds of at least 111 miles per hour. This year’s prediction compares to the 50-year median of 12 storms per year with 2.3 reaching category 3 or higher. These same experts predict the Gulf Coast - from the Florida Panhandle westward to Brownsville in Texas – has a 38 percent chance of being struck by a major hurricane. The 50-year average is 30 percent.

TIRZ: Dayton City Council and Liberty County Commissioners held a joint meeting last week on the subject of creating what is called a Tax Increment Reinvestment Zone. That’s the second joint public meeting on the proposed TIRZ. Dayton Mayor Jeff Lambright said the easiest explanation of a TIRZ is a tool for economic development that is more flexible and specific than offering tax abatements or other financial incentives. It should be stressed once again, a TIRZ is not a separate taxing entity and cannot levy an additional tax.

Champion Lake Reopens: Champion Lake Public Use Area south of Dayton has reopened. We reported the popular spot on the Trinity River National Wildlife Refuge had been closed to the public because of high water from flooding. However, Refuge Manager Stuart Marcus said flood waters there have receded and Champion Lake has reopened from sunrise to sunset daily. Champion Lake is located at the end of County Road 417 off FM 1409 – that turnoff is 10 miles south of U.S. 90 in Dayton and has clearly marked signage.
