By George Garza

 

The Orange County Water Control & Improvement District #1 in a partnership with the City of Vidor will soon be taking applications for grant funds to fix the house-tostreet, privately owned sewer lines of Vidor residents who qualify as low to moderate income families. OCWC&ID#1 General Manager, Norman Blackman said that the City of Vidor in partnership with the water district has been awarded a community development block grant that should allow the Water District to arrange to have a contractor replace some 110 privately owned sewer lines that run from homes in central Vidor to the new sewer mains running in front those houses. However, stipulations of the grant funding require that sewer line repair projects only be awarded to residents that meet the low to moderate income requirements of this State of Texas grant fund

“ Library patrons who have overdue materials, library books, DVD’s, and CD’s, no matter how long they have been checked out, may return them with all fees and fines waved for each item.” Turner said the no fee-no fine amnesty period is only good during the month of June and that the items must still be in good condition.
