CITY CORNER by Mayor
During the past few weeks the City has continued to move forward with both of
our major projects. As you are probably aware, the City is working
with Texas Water Development Board to fund a water treatment project, and we
are in the process of completing the permitting of a new landfill, since the
old landfill is rapidly filling up and will need to be closed in a year or
so. The application has been completed for the new permit and was
delivered to the Texas Commission on Environmental Quality on April 17.
It has already cleared the administrative review, which we anticipated to take
90 days, and is now beginning its technical review. It is expected that
it will be several months before the permit is fully approved and we are ready
to consider completing construction and accepting waste. One of the steps
in the process is to notify the community and neighboring property owners to
answer any concerns and hopefully gain their support for the project.
new landfill location is in the northeast portion of the Industrial Park, set
back about four hundred feet from Highway 29, and will provide about twenty-two
acres of landfill space, as well as an additional seven acres of disposal for
construction debris. We will be placing a sign in that location identifying
it as the site of the new landfill in the next couple of weeks so that everyone
can see just where we are planning to place it. This size landfill will
meet the needs of Mason and our residents for many decades to come, and by
completing the application now we can avoid some future changes in
environmental laws. There is one significant and costly change in our
landfill operations, and that is because we will no longer be considered Arid
Exempt. This means that we will have to have a composite liner below the
trash layers to isolate the garbage from the environment and monitor all water
that comes in contact with the waste. Our goal is to plan and provide the
very best and up-to-date landfill to meet the needs of our community into the
you would like to examine the entire application it is available at the City
office in a hardcopy, or online at www.MasonTxEastLandfill.com
however be aware the full application is nearly 1300 pages
long. We also have available a very simplified description of
the proposal and some diagrams of the intended layout and location that we are
mailing to all property owners within ¼ mile. If you would like to see
this simplified information, we will have it available at the City office or I
will be pleased to email it to you if you will contact me at email@example.com
and let me know of your interest. There is also information on the City
website under a tab at the lower left side of the main page.
intention is to fully inform all of the members of our community of the
expectations for our new landfill. One of the greatest obstacles to any
new landfill is to meet and respond to any concerns and issues that might come
up, and we want to be ahead of that problem by communicating and being
transparent with all of our designs and plans. If you have any
suggestions or concerns about our new landfill, please bring your comments to
any elected official or our City Administrator so that we might deal with them
reasonably. Mason is a great hometown, and working together we can
continue to meet the needs of our City and our County in appropriate and
positive ways for generations to come. Help us provide the future
residents of Mason with good garbage disposal so that our town can continue to
grow and improve.
is another project that might create some issues as you travel about
town. The City has just begun to remove the low water crossing on Post
Oak between Hwy 87 and the Mason Funeral Home. This crossing has been
literally falling apart for the past year or two, and we have had a large steel
plate over the road surface to make it passable, but now the time has come to
tear it down and rebuild it. For the next three weeks or so we will be
working in that area and Post Oak will be closed, so if you need to drive in
that area please be aware and find an alternative route. It may be
inconvenient for a few days, but once rebuilt that “bridge” should last and be
a benefit to our community for many, many years. If you have a problem
with this or any other issue in the City, please let us know and we will see
how we can best address the problem.
