Navasota City Council was sympathetic monday night about the Texas Department of Criminal Justice’s need for a new pack unit water well, after City Manager Brad Stafford explained the high arsenic levels in the current system.
But, as Mayor Protem Peter Canney explained, the city’s not about to take out a two and a half million dollar loan to build it.
Earlier, TDCJ’s Jason Clark told Navasota News that the pack unit, as a state operated facility, is just checking out all of its alternatives.
But, short of indebting the city for a couple of million dollars or more, Canney assured TDCJ officials during monday’s council session, that the city’s willing to see how it can help.
