****************************************************
Unemployment Data: Employment numbers for Liberty County have shown steady improvement during the past two years. The Texas Workforce Commission reports December unemployment for Liberty County was 5.3 percent. That is an improvement from December 2017 when it was 6.1 percent and a drop from the last month of 2016 when unemployment in Liberty County was 7.7 percent. The nationwide unemployment figure was 3.9 percent in December while the Texas rate of unemployment is now down to 3.7 percent. Of note – of the 156.95 million people across America reportedly working during December, 13.39 million live right here in Texas. That means about 1 out of every 12 jobs nationally is here in the Lone Star State.
****************************************************
Dayton Council Election: We have reported Dayton Mayor Jeff Lambright is not seeking a new term in the May 4th Dayton City Council election. To date, one candidate has filed to succeed him in that position. Caroline Wadzeck, a very active member of the Dayton community, has filed to run for mayor of the City of Dayton. Incumbent Dayton council members with expiring terms are John Johnson at Position #4 and Troy Barton at Position #5. Both have filed to run again, and to date, have no opposition. The candidate filing period continues weekdays through Friday, February 15.
****************************************************
Dayton Traffic Changes: Dayton City Council met Tuesday and made traffic changes at two locations. First, Dayton council voted to remove the one-way street designation from Colbert and East Houston streets. Those streets were made one-way travel some years back as a way to reduce traffic during pick up and drop off times at Colbert Elementary. Dayton Police Captain John Coleman told council he had discussed the matter with Dayton ISD officials and all agreed that, with recent campus changes within the school district, the one-way street periods at Colbert and East Houston are no longer needed. Dayton school officials requested a two week grace period for implementing the change so parents could be notified in advance. Another traffic change approved by Dayton City Council is restricting vehicles turning on to North Cleveland Street from Sterling Avenue to right turn only. Captain Coleman said motorists turning left onto North Cleveland from Sterling have been doing so in some very heavy traffic, resulting in problems.
