Liberty Annexation Nears Completion: Liberty City Council met at noon Tuesday in a special meeting to give the final go ahead for Phase 8 of the city’s ongoing annexation plan of property southeast along the Trinity River. As reported the Phase 8 annexation is .27 square miles. The next segment of the annexation plan – Phase 9 - is expected to be the final action on the series of annexations the City of Liberty initiated back in 2016. The ultimate goal of the plan is to annex enough property south and east of the city along the Trinity River to bring the multi-million dollar Moss Bluff gas storage facility into the city’s limits. Council members and city staff have expressed their surprise that, to date, no person associated with the Moss Bluff facility has been in communication with the City of Liberty or its attorney about the years’ long string of property annexations intended to connect Liberty – as a taxing entity – to the gas storage facility.

Dayton Rollback Election: As the result of a citizen’s petition, the City of Dayton will hold a tax rollback election on May 5 in conjunction with the city council election. The rollback election will give Dayton voters a chance to lower their city’s property tax rate from the current adopted rate of 67 cents per $100 of assessed property value down to the rollback rate of 65.5 cents per $100. Early voting hours are Monday, April 23, through Friday, April 27, from 8 a.m. to 5 p.m. Then on Monday, April 30, and Tuesday, May 1, early voting is from 7 a.m. to 7 p.m. All voting in both the Dayton city and school elections is at the Dayton Community Center, 801 South Cleveland Street.
