CITY CORNER by Mayor Brent Hinckley
The Mason Puncher football team is
certainly keeping the town buzzing on Friday nights! It is exciting to
still be watching and listening to high school football after Thanksgiving, and
we all wish them the best of luck this coming Friday night. There are few
small town groups that show the real meaning of community as well as a sports
team that is working together and giving it all they have got every week.
We in Mason are richly blessed to have such a great example in all of our
school kids and in every aspect of school activities. If the entire state
and nation could take a few minutes and learn what civility and hard work can
do for a community as it does for a football team, we would all be better
With all of the
gatherings for Thanksgiving I hope you had a wonderful time with family and
friends. We are getting back to the regular schedule with trash pickup
and other regular city services, but we will have another mixed up week or two
coming up with the extra days off for Christmas and New Year. We will put
the intended schedule in the paper in the coming weeks, but perhaps now would
be a good time to remind our residents to make extra use of the Recycling
Center in this season. It seems that every holiday generates some extra
trash, but much of the extra during this time of year can and should be
recycled and we are encouraging everyone to do their part. Our recycling
crew is hard at work keeping up with the regular loads, but they will most
often stop what they are doing and help unload your drop-offs. If you
have cardboard, paper, cans, plastics or glass please bring them by our
Recycling Center on Ave F during regular business hours, or you can place them
in the trailers that are located around town on weekends. Make a new
tradition for your family this holiday season and take a few extra minutes to
recycle and leave more room in the trash cans rather than fill them to
overflowing. Recycling makes sense for all of us and we strongly
encourage everyone to help us make our recycling efforts the very best in this
The leaves are also
starting to come down and the wind is blowing them all around so it is about
time to start cleaning up the yards in our neighborhoods in preparation for the
cold winter days ahead. We will begin the regular leave pickup in the
next few days once we see the leaf piles start to show up. If you want
this extra service please rake and pile your leaves, without sticks and other
debris, on the curb and we will come by as we can to pick them up and take them
to the brush pile so they stay out of the trash landfill. If you have
bags of leaves that you have gathered and you need taken away, please call the
City office at 347-6449 and we will get by to pick them up and dispose of them
properly as well.
Mason is aglow with the
Christmas lights, the light tree in Heritage Park and the many other
decorations around town. I am always proud of the way our community works
to keep our town clean and neat and we will work with you in every way to make
this a great holiday season. If you see some problem or have a concern
about an issue around town, please let us know and we will try to address the
situation and make it better. Not all of the problems have a single or
simple solution, but I believe that working together we can make Mason the best
place in Texas to live and work and a great hometown for all of our visitors
and family to return to for this season and others to come.
