Cameron sets Citywide Clean-up for this Saturday
The Cameron City Council held several public hearings and discussed several other topics during a meeting on Sept. 8.
Council held public hearings for the proposed tax rate and budget for 2020-21 during the meeting. There were no participants in the hearings.
Council proposed a tax rate of 77 cents per $100 valuation during a meeting Aug. 17. That rate is just under the voter approved tax rate.
Council also approved two special use permits – one to allow chickens at 1604 North Travis and one to allow the operation of a wrecking storage yard on North Travis Avenue. The council voted to waive the fee for that property.
Council also awarded a contract to AC Electrical Services LLS of Belton for $74,250 for the DWSRF Ground Storage Electrical Improvements Project and approved the use of the Airport Park softball fields for a fundraiser on Oct. 10-11.
The city will offer a ticket and warrant forgiveness opportunity as part of its Citywide Clean-up Program this Saturday.
This will be an opportunity for anyone with an outstanding ticket or warrant to lend a helping hand and participate in the citywide clean-up event.
If you are interested in participating in this forgiveness event, call the Cameron Municipal Court at (254) 697-2372 to find out if you are eligible and to register.
The city will also host its Citywide Clean-up on Saturday.
