DISD: At Tuesday’s meeting of the Dayton school board, complaints were raised from a group of parents alleging mold problems at Stephen F. Austin Elementary. One of the parents said both his daughter and son became ill while attending SFA Elementary. Donald Britt contended that complaints about mold at SFA were made last year, and some sections of carpet were removed for that reason. He went on to say complaints surfaced again this year. They were told by school officials this was the first they had heard of it. The school district issued a statement from spokesperson Stacey Gatlin, which reads: Upon the request of a parent, Dayton ISD conducted air quality tests inside and outside the Stephen F Austin Elementary building. The testing was done last week by an outside environmental consulting agency. The district continues to take proactive measures, however DISD is still waiting for the final written report. The statement said their first priority is always the safety and security of students and staff.

Water Line Insurance: Solicitation letters from a company called Home Service U.S.A. are making the rounds offering low-cost insurance for emergency repairs to homeowner’s water service line. Liberty City Manager Gary Broz said the letters could easily be mistaken for an official document. They are not. The company offering the insurance is not affiliated with any city or state agency. The Liberty City Manager said he is not suggesting this is not a legitimate company offering a legitimate service. It’s just that the service being offered is one that most will never need.
