The Big Spring Police Department reported the following activity between 7 a.m. Tuesday and 7 a.m. today:
â€˘ ERICK SHERROD FRANKS, 37, of 1425 E. Sixth St. Apt. 34, was arrested Tuesday on a charge of public intoxication.
â€˘ JESSIE RAGELIO GAMEZ, 28, of 1605 Lincoln, was arrested Tuesday on warrants for safety belt â€“ child under 17 years of age, failure to appear (two counts) and driving while license invalid.
â€˘ JONATHAN ARISPE, 20, of 1325 Pine St. in Colorado City, was arrested Tuesday on a charge of theft of service â€“ more than $20 and less than $500.
If Tuesday night's public hearing is any indication, Crossroads residents are firmly behind the 4B project to overhaul the municipality's water and wastewater facilities using up to $13 million in economic development funding set to go before voters next month.
More than a half-dozen area residents spoke in favor of the project during Tuesday night's meeting of the Big Spring City Council, which held a public hearing regarding the proposed project.
After more than a month of negotiations, it appears the city of Big Spring and Alon USA â€” owner of the Big Spring Refinery â€” have been able to reach an agreement on raw water costs and price structures, as the city council voted unanimously Tuesday to approve a new contract between the two entities.
The contract â€” which was originally signed in 1957 â€” has been updated during the years, with the most recent revision in 1997, when it was agreed the oil company would reimburse the city the same price it paid to the water district, plus 5 cents.
A memorial service for Richard V. Platzer, who died March 24, 2012, will be held from 5 p.m. to 7 p.m. Thursday, April 26, 2012, at Myers & Smith Funeral Home in Big Spring.
He was born Nov. 25, 1944.
He is survived by his significant other, Cynthia â€śKandiâ€ť Clanton of Big Spring; two daughters; a son; and other family members and friends.
