Linda Harris Honored: Dayton school trustee Linda Harris received a surprise honor during Monday night’s board meeting. At the end of the regular district celebrations, Dayton ISD Superintendent Dr. Jessica Johnson introduced Sherri Hirsch, assistant to the dean of education and events coordinator from Sam Houston State University. Mrs. Hirsch announced Linda Harris is one of five recipients of the Distinguished Sam Houston State Educator of the Year Alumni Award. The award recognizes and honors alumni educators who have made a significant contribution to the field of education.

Dayton Water Projects: At Monday’s meeting, Dayton City Council approved a two-part design contract with the Strand and Associates Engineering Firm. Dayton City Manager Theo Melancon said council hired Strand to design a test well to be used on Hwy 146 near the overhead water storage tank. The test water well will be temporary and will determine if that location will support a new water well. Cost of the design is $550,500. The second engineering design contract was for $250,000 to rehab the city’s Tram Road Water Well.

Liberty Levee Project: On Tuesday, Liberty City Council approved an amendment to the city’s inter-local agreement with the Water Control and Improvement District #5 for the joint levee project that is well under way. The levee work is the result of two grants obtained by the Water Control and Improvement District. Grant money for new earthwork on the river side of the levee is coming from the National Resources Conservation Service with the City of Liberty providing about $250,000 in matching funds coming from the Liberty Community Development Corporation Budget. Meanwhile, WCID #5 is putting up the matching funds for the Main-A Outflow Pump work with grant funds from the Federal Emergency Management Agency. Tuesday’s amendment was needed since grant money from two different sources cannot be comingled.
