Accident Victim Dies: A Moss Hill woman, struck by her own vehicle on April 8th, has died from her injuries. KSHN reported 80-year-old AniLourie Cooper, while walking back to her parked car, noticed it was rolling and tried to stop it. Liberty County Sheriffs Captain Ken DeFoor said the car door knocked the woman to the ground. Both tires on the driver’s side passed over the entire length of her body. The Moss Hill woman was taken to Memorial Hermann Hospital in Houston where she died from her injuries last Thursday.


CommissionersLand Acquisition: Anytime a vehicle license plate is renewed in Liberty County, $10 of the associated fees is earmarked for the Liberty County Road and Bridge Fund. From this fund, Commissioners draw for road repair and maintenance. Several years ago, commissioners voted to take the fee and split it in half. $5 goes directly in the road and bridge fund, while the other $5 was set aside to go into the land acquisition fund. Over time that fund builds into a considerable amount. According to Liberty County Auditor Harold Seay, every few years commissioners pull from that account for additional road and bridge money.  Recently, two commissioners have drawn on that account, each for $212,000. County Auditor Harold Seay said that is precisely what that is for and is in full compliance of what the money is intended for.


LibertyCityCouncil: At their regularly scheduled meeting Tuesday night, the Liberty City Council approved a proposal for an ongoing maintenance program for the city’s various generators. The city had previously sought bids on such a program but rejected them because they were too high. This time, the process resulted in one proposal of $23,634 from Waukegan-Pierce, one of the nations leading firms in the field. City Engineer Tom Warner said the cost of the agreement is equal to only 2% of the total value of the city’s generators.
