New Liberty Police Chief: Liberty City Council met Tuesday and promoted longtime police department supervisor Gary Martin to be the city’s new police chief. Chief Martin, a more than 21-year veteran of law enforcement – most of that time with Liberty PD – has been serving as the interim Liberty police chief since the departure of Thomas Claunch in November. There will be an official ceremony for Chief Gary Martin today at 2 p.m. at the Liberty Police Department on Lakeland Drive.

Firefighters Save Man: Liberty firefighters saved a sleeping man from smoke and flames Sunday night. Liberty Fire Chief Brian Hurst said his department was called to a home on Lawrence Street in Liberty around 10 p.m. Sunday. A shed in back of the residence was fully involved in flames when firefighters arrived. He said the fire had already moved from the shed to the interior of the home. The fire was burning in the living room of the residence when Liberty firefighters entered the house and searched for occupants. With heavy smoke billowing into the bedroom of the residence and smoke alarms blaring, Liberty Firefighters Luke Hajovsky and Lindsey Pruitt located a man asleep and coughing. Chief Hurst said Bobby Faneros - thought to be in his 30s - had been unaware of the fire when firefighters woke him and helped him from the home. The fire chief said the blaze was extinguished shortly thereafter with minimal fire damage to the home and no injuries.
****************************************************
Property Tax Deadline: An important reminder - property owners have until close of business January 31 to pay property taxes without penalty. Liberty County Tax Collector Ricky Brown said all 2018 property taxes not paid by that date will incur a 7 percent penalty. There is a special provision for those 65 years old and above or individuals with a qualifying handicap to pay property taxes on their homestead in four installment payments without incurring penalty. However, Mr. Brown emphasizes the first payment is still due by the January 31 deadline. The main tax office is on the first floor - Travis Street side - of the Liberty County Courthouse. The Cleveland Annex is located at 304 Campbell Street while the County Annex in Dayton is on FM 1960. All three offices are open weekdays from 8 a.m. to 12:30 p.m. and then from 1 till 4:30. For more information, call the tax office at 936-336-4636.
