ALL CITY OF MASON FACILITIES WILL BE CLOSED FRIDAY IN OBSERVANCE OF GOOD FRIDAY AND EASTER
CITY CORNER by Mayor Brent Hinckley
It seems that spring has come to
the Hill Country, and the many wildflowers are a testament to the beauty and
blessings that we enjoy in Mason. This past weekend was full of
activities that provided some enrichment to those who had an opportunity to
participate. The Second Chamber Music Festival brought some high quality
classical entertainment to town, the Spring ArtWalk was a great success with
many local and visiting artists showing a very broad range of talent and
vision, The Seaquist House had another successful day of tours, and there were
many people in town to enjoy the weekend in the country and see the fabulous
pallet of colors that our wildflowers share with us each spring. The
coming weeks will have even more activities for everyone’s enjoyment so keep
your eyes open for all the announcements and fill your calendar with the fun
things that are happening in our community.
The City is busy with the many
chores that we have every spring, and we will continue working on the projects
that are planned to improve our neighborhoods and our town as a whole. We
still need applications from interested individuals to fill the positions of
lifegaurds for our City swimming pool. We are working to be prepared for
the extra usage of our City parks during the spring and summer. We are
gathering materials to patch some much needed sections of roads and the many
potholes that keep showing up. The Recycling Center is working hard to
keep up with the many drop-offs that come with people cleaning up and doing
spring cleaning. And our Electric Department is working to take care of
any power outages that occur whenever there is a spring storm or a strong
wind. Spring is always a busy time for the City crews to keep up with the
many projects and regular maintenance around town, however if you see something
that might need attention please let us know so that we do not overlook a
problem that we can fix or a concern that we can deal with before it becomes a
more significant issue.
I have made one change that some of
our residents may want to note and put on your calendar. I am calling the
next City Commission meeting for a week later than previously planned.
The regular third Monday schedule would have us meeting on the day following
Easter, and with the family time during that weekend and the City being closed
for Good Friday, I feel that it would be better for everyone to delay that
meeting until Monday, April 24 at the regular time and place. I will
mention this again before the meeting date, and as we get closer I will have a
better idea of the issues to be considered and will write about them as
well. The general business of the City is proceeding in a very productive
manner, and during the rest of the spring and into summer we will be dealing
specifically with some of the planning and decision making necessary as we work
on the water treatment plans to reduce the radionuclides in our water supply
and deal with the permitting for the new landfill to replace our rapidly
filling old landfill.
I had hoped to have a shorter
column this week rather than take up so much space that the newspaper is so
gracious to provide, but I do want to repeat a request. If you have
anything at all that you feel needs City attention, whether it is a project or
improvement, an idea or change of regulations, any suggestion at all is gladly
heard and if reasonable we will work to make it happen. This is a
community of many different individuals and we are best and strongest when
everyone knows they are heard and represented by their local government.
Mason is a great place to live and work, and together we will continue to make
it even better.
