More water restrictions expected

March 14, 2012

It appears the city of Big Spring will have to start off its summer watering season a bit on the dry side, as City Manager Gary Fuqua told the council Tuesday night municipal water customers will be asked to cut their water usage even more than this time last year.
Fuqua said the city has received a letter from the Colorado City Municipal Water District laying out its alloted water deliveries for the summer months.

March 14, 2012

Discussion Tuesday night by the Big Spring City Council on whether or not to ban the use of plastic grocery-type bags in the city limits ended with the panel agreeing the matter warrants more research and — most of all — a wary eye.
The council's decision to approach the matter comes on the heels of similar bans proposed and instituted in Fort Stockton, South Padre Island, Austin and Pecos, a trend started last year when Brownsville became the first city in Texas to ban the use of plastic bags in nearly all consumer settings.
