Hardin City Council: Hardin City Council voted Monday to allow city attorney Wes Hinch to negotiate on behalf of the city for the purchase of property to possibly locate a waste water treatment plant. In other action, Councilman Art Riley resigned. Mr. Riley was both complimentary of some remaining members of Hardin City Council and critical to others. He apologized to former council members Connie Campbell, Phyllis Lewing and Julie Terry, saying he now understands their previous accusations against current Mayor Stephanie Blume. Art Riley also accused Mayor Pro-Tem Anthony Landry of using council for financial gain. Neither Mayor Blume nor Councilman Landry commented on Riley’s comments and accusations.

Sheriff Gets Raise: Liberty County Commissioners Court approved a pay raise for the sheriff during Tuesday’s meeting. We reported a salary grievance committee held a hearing Aug. 3 at the request of Sheriff Bobby Rader and unanimously supported Rader’s contention that his salary should be increased by $3,403. Tuesday, commissioners approved that raise on a 3-1 vote with Pct. 4 Commissioner Leon Wilson voting no. He gave a long explanation for his vote, criticizing the department’s crime clearance rate. Chief Deputy Don Neyland responded by saying the statistics sent to Texas Department of Public Safety through the Uniform Crime Reporting Program are easily manipulated. Sheriff’s Captain Billy Knox said the department is moving to the new NIBRS system and away from UCR.
