Some usually unrecognized Navasota heros who are always there to assist when emergencies occur were finally honored by City Council, as Mayor Bert Miller and Council declared April 9th through 15th as Public Safety Telecommunicators’ Week in Navasota.
And the honors continued Monday, as City Secretary Susie Homeyer revealed the winners, as it turned out, Shela Taylor and Ernest Munices in the vote for the city’s first Excellence Award winner of 20-17.
Then City Manager Brad Stafford thanked the more than 200 folks who joined him for the city’s 12th annual Trash-Off. He said Christ our Light had the largest volunteer group, Northwood Apartments had a large group, actually, he confided, one of the folks in the group he helped told him there’s not a lot of trash to pick up anymore, adding that’s a good sign.
Stafford also reminded that this year’s Kid Fish event at Patout Pond is coming up from 9 to Noon on Saturday, May 13th, and that they’ve already begun booking bands for the city’s Sounds of Summer concert series, the first four Fridays in June.
We’ll have more on both of those for you later, here on Navasota News.
