The Navasota Airport is one step closer to having their own weather system.
Jennifer Reyna, the city public works director, updated council at Monday’s meeting on the year-long Automated Weather Observing System project (AWOS), which is just waiting on the final power hook up.
“I am still waiting on a Transformer to be installed, for power for the AWOS. I talked to Entergy Texas today, they said there was some miscommunication in their office…which pushes us back a bit. So, that pushes a completion date from January, to maybe a February completion date,” said Reyna.
If you have heard city council, or county commission meetings before, you know there has been some tug-of-war with Entergy, as mentioned by councilman Josh Fultz…
“Just curious, it seems like we keep having problems with Entergy not doing whatever project they have agreed too…I know we have no control over them, but, see if we can’t apply some pressure,” said Fultz.
“I think something happened in their office. They told me it was like a third party, which does not fully understand everything they need to do in the field…I do not know,” Reyna replied.
She said once the transformer is installed, they just need an electrician to hook the final power up.
Completion of the AWOS is expected by February.
