In his recent, annual State of the City Address, Navasota Mayor Bert Miller said it’s a great and exciting time to be in Navasota, even dealing with infrastructure needs through the capital improvement program.
Including, he said, streets, sewer, water and gas mains, as well as the storm drainage systems in flood-prone areas. Miller was happy to report this plan is being implemented and the city is working with engineering firms, FEMA and the Army Corps of Engineers and have applied for funding to assist in these projects.
Miller said the city is financial stable, and despite being one of many cities whose tax revenues have declined, navasota’s unemployment has dropped to 4.3 percent.
Miller reported Kidfish numbers were up last year, as was Home for the Holidays, and there were enhancements to August Horst Park, Oakland Cemetery, the city pool and the Navasota Center.
And to ongoing complaints about roads and streets, Miller cautioned a lot of them are in the county, and not the City of Navasota itself.
