Volume 29, No. 185 Wednesday, September 24, 2014

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

Prop 1 Committee: Â November 4thTexas voters will decide whether to amend the state constitution to provide long term funding for the states transportation needs. Should Proposition 1 be approved, funding would come from a portion of the state's collected oil and gas tax, currently designated for the state's rainy day emergency fund. State Rep. John Otto has been appointed to a committee that would decide the cap on the amount of tax money that can be moved from the state's "Rainy Day Fund" into those transportation projects should the amendment gain voter approval. The Dayton Republican said capping the amount that can go to transportation funding will ensure there's enough money on hand for a state emergency.

Commissioners: Liberty County Commissioners approved a rate increase for the county's volunteer fire departments for the upcoming budget year. County Auditor Harold Seay said during this budget year, the county has paid the volunteer departments $312,000. He estimated the increase in rates per fire run would result in a new total of $380,000 for the upcoming budget year. Â Also, commissioners approved a request from the TVE to use the old Wal-Mart parking lot for parking during the week of Oct. 15-18 in the case of rain conditions. TVE Board member Chip Green said the TVE would provide shuttle service for TVE visitors from the north Main location to the fairgrounds and back. He hoped they wouldn't need it.
