Big Spring voters will decide the future of the Big Spring Economic Development Corporation, the city council assured Tuesday.
The Big Spring City Council gave final approval to a measure calling for an election to be held in November, giving voters the opportunity to nix the existing Type A economic development corporation and replace it with a Type B corporation.
Local veteran Mike Tarpley was recently recognized as the 2012-13 Patriot of the Year.
The award was presented to Tarpley by the Military Order of the Purple Heart on Aug. 11 in Austin.
â€śAt first when I received this award it was something I couldn't tell anyone about, I was too emotional about it,â€ť Tarpley said. â€śThis is a pretty big honor to me. For the state of Texas to recognize what I do.â€ť
