DPS Offices: The DPS driver license offices in Liberty County will not be shut down, at least for now. The Texas Association of Counties reported last week that a number of those offices could be closed, including the ones in Liberty and Cleveland. That proposal was set to go before the Texas Legislative Sunset Commission this week. One member of the Sunset Commission is Senator Robert Nichols. He represents Senate District 3, which includes Liberty County plus 18 other counties in East Texas. Sen. Nichols assures KSHN that the proposal to close the 87 offices across the state, including the two in Liberty County, will not move forward at this time. However, the senator said the issues of DPS staffing and efficiency will be considered during the next legislative session in an effort to help resolve some problems with the operation of the driver license offices.

Murder Charges: Two 21-year-old men are in being held in the Liberty County Jail without bond, charged with murder. We are told many details are not available since the pair was arrested on a sealed indictment from Harris County in connection with a murder apparently committed in Liberty County. According to Liberty County Jail records, Walter Antonio Mejia and Jimmy Alexander Villalobos-Gomez were arrested last Wednesday. Information indicates the arrests were made by Houston police, even though both suspects were booked into Liberty County Jail. Available information indicates the murder charges against Mejia and Villalobos-Gomez are related to skeletal remains found in the Plum Grove area of North Liberty County earlier this month. The identity of the victim has not been released.
****************************************************
Liberty Ordinances: We have reported on discussions at recent Liberty City Council meetings about city ordinances restricting recreational vehicles and manufactured homes within city limits. Liberty Interim City Manager Larry Shaw said the purpose of bringing these ordinances and related enforcement problems before council was to receive direction on how city staff should proceed. He said city staff is now taking a more aggressive stance on enforcing city RV ordinances as well as other violations of the city’s restrictions on unsightly yard clutter, overgrown lawns, and other types of what he called “eyesores”.
