 City Corner

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.
