Texarkana, Texas City Council Might Cancel May Election
The Texarkana, Texas City Council meets tonight at 6 p.m. at city hall.One of the items on the agenda will be a resolution to cancel the city election scheduled for May. The reason is because all three city council members running for re-election are unopposed. This fact will make the need for an election unnecessary.
Also, the council will look at accepting another donation that would go toward purchasing body cameras for Texas side police officers. Last month the Sadowski family of Texarkana donated $10,000 to the Texarkana, Texas Police Department for body cameras.
The council also will discuss asbestos abatement for 10 structures in the city council's top 40 demolition list. The council also will address amendments to the 2015 budget for personnel adjustments, starting the city's minimum salary level, and it will discuss adding a health inspector position.
The public is invited to attend the open portion of tonight's meeting.
