CITY CORNER by Mayor Brent Hinckley

 

     In the past few weeks I have written about some of the activities that seem to fill our weekends during the spring. There are many of them, and in the coming days we will have the Mason Cancer Benefit and its several activities next weekend and the Mason Volunteer Fire Department BBQ the following weekend.  In addition there is a Farmer's Market every Saturday evening behind Sandstone Winery, rock crawling out west of town, river fun on the Llano and no doubt several other things that I am forgetting at the moment. With the beautiful spring weather I hope you have many chances to get out and enjoy it with family and friends.

     Another regular City activity of spring is the regular municipal elections each year. This year there are races in both the City Commission and the School Board, and this is a good time to take a few minutes and participate in the local democratic process. The early voting started this week on Monday, April 24 so if you wish to cast your vote now before Election  Day that option is available to you. The School Board election is for two positions and they are both at-large, meaning that any registered voter in the county can go by the administrative office of MISD and cast a vote. The City elections are a bit more complicated since only voters in the specific Districts can cast a vote for those particular candidates.  In both elections the Election Day voting is on Saturday May 6,and will be at the Richard P Eckert Civic Center at 1024 McKinley Ave from 7am to 7 pm. Whether you  choose to vote early or on Election Day, you will need a photo ID and your voter registration card.

     The early voting for the City election is being held at the City offices on the southwest corner of the square. The candidates for District 2 are Bonnie Beam and Anna Velez, but has I said you have to live in that District which runs along the north side of Hwy 29 to Broad St on the west, including parts of Spring St over to Robin and then bounded by the City limits on the north, and then following Nueces/Pontotoc/Bickenbach Ave on the east and back to Hwy 29. . In District 4 the candidates are William Beaty and Vicki Enrique and that District covers most of the rest of the east side of town, from Bickenbach Ave to Pontotoc on the north, to the eastern City limits and then all the way south to the Ft Mason Park, and then along the south City limits to Live Oak Street and back to the northeast corner of the Square and then along Hwy 29 back to Bickenbach Ave.  If you live in those areas and are a registered voter, you have an opportunity to voice your choice of who will serve you on the City Commission for the next two years.

    Early voting times are every week day from 8:00 am till 5:00 pm with extended hours on Friday, April 28 and Tuesday May2 from 7:00 am to 7:00 pm, which would allow you to vote after work. There will not be any early voting on Wednesday, Thursday or Friday next week, but Election Day will be on Saturday, May 6 from 7 am till 7 pm at the Eckert Civic Center. If you have any questions concerning this election, please call the City office at 347-6449 and we will get you the information you need, and remember that you need a photo ID in order to vote in any election. Voting is one of the foundations of our democracy, and it is only by wisely choosing your elected officials that our community can continue to be the best hometown in Texas.

     There are a few other things going on in the City that you might want to know about.  We have a tire collection going on at the Recycle Center to collect all used tires that are sitting around in town.  Taking these tires to the Recycle Center before Friday, April 28 will allow you to clean up these particularly unsightly items and will also keep them from collecting rain water that is often the breeding ground for mosquitoes.  That brings up the other activity that we will be starting on Wednesday this week, and that is the neighborhood spraying for those flying pests.  There should be another article in this paper noting the schedule and neighborhoods that we will be spraying, but with the many reports of mosquitoes invading everyone’s outdoor activities we are taking steps to begin the spraying early to get ahead of the problems and possible disease concerns they carry.  You can do your part by draining any standing water that you see on your property and suggesting to your neighbors that they drain any water so that we can reduce the breeding areas that attract mosquitoes.  Please help us address this problem, because it is only as we work together than we can make Mason a truly great place to live and work.
