 City Corner

 

CITY CORNER by Mayor Brent Hinckley

 

     OOPS!!!  Sometimes that about sums up things that happen in life, we all make mistakes and this week we had one of those times at the City.  When we sent out the utility bills for electricity, water and garbage fees late last week many of the bills were printed with an incorrect due date.  At least one section of town had a “due date” of February 5, and that was a misprint and mistake that might cause some confusion.  We have not changed any of the schedule for utility payments and we do not expect anyone to get their bill paid before the end of this week, so if your bill is one of those that went out wrong, please ignore it and keep with the regular middle of the month due date.  Because Mason is a small community, we can deal with the customers we have with a single payment cycle and all of our bills are generated at the end of each month and put in the mail at one time.  All  of them are due on the 15th and are considered late and we send out a notice a day or two after.  If the bills remain unpaid for a further week we move forward with red tags and eventually discontinuing service, although we work with most every customer to avoid that. 

     As usual there are also some other problems that we are working to get corrected around town.  This morning we discovered that the Reverse Osmosis system that we provide next to the Eckert Civic Center has a broken connection.  We have tried to fix or bypass that fitting, but have had no luck and have placed the order for a replacement.  It is expected that the RO water will not be available for the next several days, but we will get it working again as soon as we can get the right part.  There are some other pieces of City equipment that have some malfunctions lately and they are being worked on, but we can do most everything to handle the regular work and the occasional emergency with the remaining equipment as we wait for repairs and parts.

     There are several other things going on around the City and we look forward to some real “Spring spruce up” at the City hall.  We are painting the inside of the offices and public areas during the colder months, and we are working with a volunteer group from LCRA to have a work day to paint the outside of the building in a couple of months.  We are thinking to redo the sign on the building to update and repair it, and there are some other improvements that have been needed for years in the planning stage.

      We also have a City Commission meeting next Monday, February 8 at the Eckert Civic  Center and there are a number of positive agenda items to be covered.  We will have a Public Hearing regarding a City-wide planning grant that we are looking into, we will officially commit to the spring municipal elections, we will consider the draft of a significant Hazard Mitigation Plan for this community and for the County, and we will consider supporting a new affordable housing development primarily for senior adults.  There are a few other items that will be on the agenda, but if you are interested in the working of your City government or if you want to know more about some of the plans and activities we are working on, please feel free to come to our meeting.  Every meeting of any governmental body is open to the public, and here at the City we are glad to have residents attend and welcome any comments or questions.  Together we are working to make Mason the best hometown in Texas.
