Council nixes garbage rate hike again

October 23, 2013

The second verse was the same as the first.

After plenty of impassioned — and sometimes heated — debate during their Tuesday meeting, the Big Spring City Council once again voted against raising the garbage collection fees for local residents and businesses.

The same four council members who voted down the measure in September — Marcus Fernandez, Carmen Harbour, Glen Carrigan and Marvin Boyd — voted against the rate hike, while Mayor Larry McLellan was joined by Bobby McDonald and Raul Benavides is supporting the increase.

Williams named BSPD chief

October 23, 2013

Take the “interim” off of Chad Williams' job title.

Big Spring City Manager Todd Darden announced Tuesday that Williams was selected over two other finalists to be the new chief of the Big Spring Police Department.

Williams has been serving as interim chief of the department since Lonnie Smith's resignation earlier this year.

He and fellow BSPD lieutenants Lance Telchik and Robert Fitzgibbons were the three finalists for the position, Darden said.
