CITY CORNER by Mayor Brent Hinckley


     So far it seems that winter is full of cold, cloudy and rainy days.  I would enjoy a few days with some sunshine, but I am certainly not complaining about the moisture, just wish we had some more.  There are some things that are finally progressing around the City, although they are delayed from our initial planning.  Just this morning I was told that the leaf truck is finally back in working condition, and so once things dry out the crews will be getting back on route and working their ways through our neighborhoods to pick up the leaf piles.  I know that this has been delayed and hope that we can get most of the leaf piles picked up during the next few sunny days, and if you have bagged your leaves you just need to call the City office and we will send a truck by to pick up your leaf bags.  

     The other project that we are waiting on is the arrival of the new trash truck.  We were thinking it would be here by mid-January, but we just learned late last week that it would not be built and ready for final delivery until after the first week of February.  I was a bit distressed at the delay, but we cannot change the schedule of a large manufacturing facility.  I did want everyone to know that it will be another month, or a bit more, before we will be ready to start the transition of garbage pickup.  One step that you can deal with right now is to stop by the City office to look at and decide which size trash can will best fit your household needs.  We have samples of the three regular sizes and a card to fill out that will help us get the right size can to you and keep our records straight to meet your needs.  The first truck load of new trash cans should be in town in the next week or so, so we will need to have this information soon, so if you have a chance please do stop by the City office and help us record your choice.  

     The other issue that I am beginning to work on is the lowering of speed limits around town.  Several years ago we lowered the speed limits on all City streets to 30 mph, but the state highways are regulated in a different manner in relation to the Texas Transportation Code.  There are a few steps and several conversations I will have to go through with various state officials, however I intend to keep moving forward on this until I can get some action to reduce the speed limits on the state highways in the City limits particularly in the area around the Square and through our residential neighborhoods.  It will take some time, but waiting for the state agencies to take action has not had any results so we will see how soon we can make a difference for ourselves.  

     The first of the year is a good time to set out new goals and objectives, and I hope you see that we in the City office are trying to make some difference as we move forward.  If you have any suggestions or ideas, we would be pleased to hear them as well.  Mason is a great place to call home, and as we start this new year we should all look around to see what we can do to make it even better.
