Big Spring City Council will look to put the finishing touches on its 2011-2012 fiscal plan Tuesday with final reading of its proposed budget and ad valorem tax rate.
The budget â€” which passed first reading Sept. 13 on a 6-1 vote â€” includes $1.5 million for a centrifugal sludge collection system for the city's water treatment plant, a project city officials are hoping will help raise the quality of water delivered by the municipality by lowering turbidity levels.
Leading the Big Spring Herald Community Christmas Parade this year will be an individual who lives up to the theme â€” â€śA Wild West Christmas.â€ť
Grand marshal for the Dec. 3 event will be Howard College Rodeo Coach Greg Kernick.
