Beginning Aug. 1, commercial entities which have previously dumped their oilfield, construction or demolition waste at the municipal landfill will be turned away, according to officials with the city of Big Spring.
Public Works Director Johnny Womack made the announcement this week, part of an effort by the city administration to limit the amount of waste being brought into the facility, which is quickly reaching the end of its lifespan.
John Law will be a constant presence at Forsan and Coahoma school campuses starting this August.
Concerns about student and staff safety have reached new heights in the wake of school shootings across the country in recent months. While some Texas school districts are debating options such as arming teachers, both Coahoma and Forsan have instead chosen to go with a permanent law enforcement presence at their campuses.
