Early voting in city elections continues

By George Garza

 

It’s election time again in Vidor and Pine Forest. No, you don’t have to declare for a political party and it doesn’t matter if you like The Donald or you like Hillary. This May 7th election determines who will represent you at your city hall and decide things like your city taxes and fees, where to put up those no parking zones, the speed limits in your neighborhoods, the hours your public library is open and a whole host of other local rules and regulations. The City of Vidor and the City of Pine Forest are each holding an election for candidates running for each city’s City Council. The City of Pine Forest is also holding a special local option election to decide if the sale of all alcoholic beverages for off premises consumption will be allowed.

By George Garza

 

The so-called Vidor Loop is still a possibility, according to Orange County Judge Stephen Brint Carlton. The Judge says there is still time left to qualify for Texas Department of Transportation reimbursement funds that were set aside for the project several years ago. “It is my understanding that the pass through toll funding package has been set aside by the State for the past few budget cycles,” said Judge Carlton. “They want something to be done with it.
