Tuesday's meeting of the Big Spring City Council features a rather routine agenda, as the government panel looks to give final approval to a resolution supporting House Joint Resolution 56, a bill currently being considered by the Texas Legislature that would outlaw certain mandates in the Lone Star State.
During its Feb. 22 meeting, the council approved first reading of the resolution, which calls for a constitutional amendment prohibiting unfunded and underâfunded mandates passed down from the state level to city and county governments.
The Big Spring Police Department reported the following activity between 9 a.m. Saturday and 7 a.m. today:
â¢ DANIEL MONTEZ VIERA SR., 23, of 1907 S. Main St., was arrested Saturday on a charge of public intoxication.
