LISD Safety: Liberty ISD trustees heard a presentation on using two different mobile phone apps to enhance school safety. That came during Tuesday’s board meeting. Dusty McGee is the Liberty school district director of educational support and school administration. He told trustees the district will begin using both an Instant Alert Network application and an Emergency Operations Plans app during the coming school year. Mr. McGee said the Instant Alert Network app will allow teachers and administrators to send an emergency alert districtwide. He said those messages could include designated notifications ranging from weather to intruder alerts. The Emergency Operations Plans app contains specific instructions to follow during a wide range of situations. This would give educators a tool on their cell phone that would allow them to look up the specific emergency and then follow district protocols. Mr. McGee says both of these mobile phone applications are tools to improve district safety.

Country Club Sale: Liberty City Council met Tuesday and took what are expected to be the final steps toward the purchase of Magnolia Ridge Country Club. We have reported the city of Liberty plans to purchase the country club for around $260,000. However, the series of delays completing the sale brought the Magnolia Ridge Country Club debt up to – at last report - around $288,000. Tuesday, Liberty council approved paying an amount, not to exceed, $300,000 for the club with the intention of closing on the sale by tomorrow. Also, Liberty council approved creation of an Enterprise Fund as a financial mechanism for running the golf course. The account will open with $210,000 from the Liberty Community Development Corporation’s budget to go toward operating the golf course. That same fund will also contain all the revenue generated by the golf course.

Debbie Goudeau Retiring: One of South Liberty County’s longtime successful businesses is changing hands, and its owner will soon be retiring. Thirty four years ago Debbie Goudeau opened City Florist and Gifts on Jefferson Drive in Liberty. Mrs. Goudeau said she previously operated a floral and gift shop in Ames, but the move to Liberty seemed like a good idea then, and so it was. Although City Florist and Gifts will continue to operate, it will do so under a new name and with a new owner still to be announced.
