Dayton: The Coronavirus is causing people to stay home and use more utilities than normal and with that comes higher bills. On Monday night Dayton City Council authorized City Staff to make common sense decisions on cut offs and late fees on city water and sewer. Dayton City Manager Theo Melancon, said the Dayton council did not want to give a city wide order waving utility late fees and stop disconnecting service, because doing so might prompt some citizens to not pay their city water bills in a timely manner.


LISD Board Meeting: On Tuesday night, the Liberty ISD Board of Trusties met to discuss a number of agenda items. However, for the first time they met telephonically. Assistant Superintendent Dusty McGee after some initial connection difficulties were worked out the meeting ran smoothly.  With the Coronavirus Pandemic closing schools the Assistant Superintendent said said only Board President Bruce Bell, Superintendent Cody Abshire, LISD Attorney and himself were at the administration building for the meeting.
