The city's dependence on the VFD rather than incur the cost of a full-time department does really put the truth to the lie that Shelly and Danny try to push - that people in the county don't have a dog in the hunt in the city.... More ›

In Texas the paid fire department and other enhanced services come into play when the city population reaches 10,000. That is why the city needs to begin planning now. This annexation plan may not increase our population to... More ›

Newguyntown, haven't you heard, Juan Ortiz is Tejada's puppet!! Or if you haven't heard, watch all city council meeting videos. Ortiz doesn't say a word without looking at Tejada first.
