LISD Annexation Hearing: The Liberty school board will hold a public hearing this evening to consider a petition from a group of land and home owners to annex some property currently in Hardin ISD into the Liberty school district. The area proposed for annexation is the property inside the city limits of Liberty but is now part of the Hardin school district. That includes the Featherstone Subdivision and McGuire Road area. A majority of those property owners have reportedly signed a petition asking to be annexed into Liberty ISD. The Hardin school board also must hold a public hearing, but that has not yet been scheduled. The Liberty school board will hold its public hearing today at 7 p.m. in the LISD Administration building, 1600 Grand Avenue.

Phone Scam: There’s another phone scam targeting local residents. The latest scam is someone claiming to represent the City of Liberty Utility Department, but instead, it’s an attempt to trick citizens out of their money. Liberty police began receiving complaints Friday about phone calls demanding utility payments. The caller threatened to cut off service unless payment was received in the form of a pre-paid cash card. Liberty city officials say they will never ask for utility payments in that manner. Any City of Liberty resident who gets a call for utility bill payments should contact Liberty PD at 936-336-5666.

****************************************************

Fire: A house on FM 1960 in the Dayton area was destroyed by fire Saturday. Several members of the Dayton Volunteer Fire Department were already at the firehouse preparing for a training school when the call came in for emergency response around 5 a.m. Chief Terry Boyett said by the time firefighters arrived the house was engulfed in flames. It was the home of the late Lois Benton, but nobody has lived there since she died several years ago. No word on the cause of the blaze, but it is known that some vagrants have been in and out of the house.

****************************************************

Chamber Banquet: The Liberty-Dayton Area Chamber of Commerce Awards Banquet is Friday at 6:30 p.m. in the Dayton Community Center. This year’s guest speaker is Texas Demographer Dr. Lloyd B. Potter. Dinner is pork tenderloin and all the trimmings catered by Ken Owens. The night includes honoring the annual Citizen of the Year for both Liberty and Dayton. To reserve tickets, call the Chamber at 936-336-5736.
