Diboll council looks into street repairs
"Consensus of the council was to table the bids to repair just one street and take a look at doing all streets in Deer Trace as a package," said Diboll City Manager Lanny Parish. The housing area sits adjacent to Neches Pines Golf Course and Diboll High School in the northeast part of the city. Councilmen also tabled action on accepting bids on a new generator for the city until officials could make sure all the bids met previous specifications, Parish said.
Diboll lists finalists
The list of finalists to replace the retiring Lanny Parish as Diboll's city manager include:It is possible they may name their final choice as early as next month, Parish said.Parish had given Diboll council members more than a year's notice of his retirement plans at the end of 2006, and the council expressed a desire to have a replacement named well in advance of Parish's departure."Having someone already on board would make for an easier transition, and I think that's what the council had in mind," Parish said.Parish was a longtime city secretary for Diboll before moving up to the city manager's position in the late 1990s.He originally intended to retire in March 2005 but was persuaded by the council to stay through the end of 2006.In other action at Tuesday's meeting, council members rejected all bids on selling a Cadillac Escalade that was part of seizure property by the city."The council believed all bids we received were too low," Parish said.
County and cities receive high sales tax rebate checks
"I'm really not sure why it's up, but it's always good to get it," said Diboll City Manager Lanny Parish."It seems to always come at a good time.We'll certainly take it." For the 2005 calendar year, Diboll's state sales tax rebates are up 4 percent at $364,293. Parish said the increased revenue could be due to a number of things, including improved sales for companies such as Temple-Inland, ATCO Structures and Do+Able Products."I know that ATCO has been doing a booming business lately," Parish said.
FYI: Golf carts allowed on new trails
A: Diboll City Manager Lanny Parish said the city has not prohibited the use of golf carts on the new trails, but just about any other type of vehicle would be prohibited. "A check with Klotz Associates Inc., the engineering firm that designed the trails, defines a motorized vehicle as any all-terrain vehicle, motorcycle or four-wheel-drive vehicle," Parish said."Motorized wheelchairs or golf carts are OK, but all others would be prohibited. "The main reason is weight," Parish said.
FYI: City of Diboll asks residents to save water
A: Yes, there is, for about nine or 10 more days, according to Diboll City Manager Lanny Parish, who said the order runs through the month of April. Parish said the city has experienced problems with two water wells , one with a burned-up pump that must be replaced, and the other one had some production problems.The voluntary conservation measures were asked of the citizens "to handle regular customer usage, and also to allow for adequate fire protection," Parish said. The conservation measures apply to sprinkler systems, etc., and are for grass-watering only."People are OK to give their shrubs or flowers a quick drink, but no prolonged grass-watering over an extended period of time until we can get things back up and running," Parish said. The parts are on the way to make the repairs to the first well's pump, and with any luck it should be repaired by May 1, Parish said.
