As city officials continue efforts to bring revisions to the municipality's charter to local voters in May, many area residents may be asking themselves with one very important question: what are initiatives and referendums?
Brought to the Big Spring City Council by newly-elected Mayor Tommy Duncan, the city staff has been asked to research the possible use of term limits, initiatives and referendums in the Crossroads area.
Howard County commissioners approved a 90-day burn ban Monday morning as the amount of dry grass and brush â€” coupled with high winds â€” threatens to turn the Crossroads area into a tinder box.
The court approved the ban by a unanimous vote after County Volunteer Fire Chief Tommy Sullivan explained the danger posed by reckless burning in the area.
The Big Spring Police Department reported the following activity between 7 a.m. Monday and 7 a.m. today:
â€˘ LOGAN EARL ROSE, 28, of 1509 Stadium, was arrested Monday on a charge of disorderly conduct â€“ fighting.
