The Senate and House Appropriations Committees and representatives of the Governor are hammering out a budget as I write this (See Wednesday’s Special Update).  What is at stake for us in District 2 are 15 miles of asphalt roads and five bridges on our 5-year construction plan. The accumulation of funds in the CIRB state general funds account are on the plate for consideration to meet the shortfall in the state’s budget. Read more…

The response to our new citizen groups has been very encouraging. Our road planning committee has five new members and our traffic safety committee has three new members. We are also starting to receive recommended projects for the Save & Pave program and we set aside just over $30K this month to start the program. Our district transportation safety program currently has $3,100 set aside for critical traffic control projects. We are gathering preliminary cost projections for each of the recommended projects and will discuss at our next district meeting of the road and safety committees. Look for more on that later this month as soon as we firm up schedules with the good folks at Oak Cliff Fire Station #2.  Read more…

With St. Patrick’s Day come and gone the green of spring can only be just around the corner and so is spring cleaning. This week I noticed a group of folks picking up trash along Broadway just south of Seward Road.  As it turns out it was volunteers from the Seward Road Baptist Church out picking up the unsightly trash littering our county roadsides.  I wanted to publicly thank that particular congregation and all of our faith based organizations who donate their time and efforts to improve our community and assist those less fortunate than most.
