New Liberty Police Station: The Liberty City Council has accepted the community disaster relief money that will fund a portion of the new Liberty police Department. Receipt of that long-awaited $1.2 million means the city can move forward with construction plans. Liberty City Manager Gary Broz said he expects a groundbreaking in March. He said the 10,000 square foot facility will have an awning covered parking for city police vehicles.


Disabled Vet Homestead Exemption: Military veterans who are totally disabled, or cannot work because of service-related injuries are eligible to pay no property taxes on their homestead. Leanne Neal, a homestead specialist with the Liberty County Central Appraisal District, said while those qualifying veterans are eligible for the 100 percent exemption on their home, they still must apply through their local appraisal district. To learn more call (936) 336-5722.


Sentencing: A Chambers County man, David Sartin, has been sentenced to 123 months in prison for his murder-for-hire scheme. Sartin pleaded guilty in August to attempted kidnapping and brandishing a firearm during a crime of violence. According to information presented in court, David Sartin made attempts to hire someone to kidnap an individual from the Ukraine and have that person delivered to Sartin here in the US. Prosecutors say the defendant then intended to kill or have the individual killed.
