jumping in too soon.
Discussion and more dis-
cussion filled the agenda

lar meeting 01 the Nolan

Court. There are different
areas of the county need-

proper consideration, they
each will see improve-
ments.
Becky Brock, County-
City Li brary Director, pre-
sented some useful infor-
mation to process of get-
ting a new air conditioning
unit for the library.
According to Brock,
the library is funded by

Roscoe will soon be able to reap the benefits of a new wastewater treatment plant. The current wastewater
area is old enough to be considered ancient, according to Robert McBride, council member. The new plant
is expected to be more efficient and environmentally friendly. The project is estimated at $1.5 billion and
is expected to be completed by July 17. Pictured above on the soon to be site of the Wastewater Treatment
Plant are Kenith Brawley, council member, Robert McBride, council member, Helen Perry, council mem-

Sweetwater sees abundance of snow
Sweetwater residents woke up to an abundance of snow
on Tuesday morning. Snow is expected to accumulate
up to three inches according to weather.com. Travel is
also highly discouraged today. "If at all possible, please
postpone travel until later today or until tomorrow
after the frozen roadways melt," said Sparky Dean,
Senior Trooper with the Texas Highway Patrol.
Traffic is moving slowly, but the Texas Highway Patrol
is reporting numerous minor crashes and vehicles
stuck in ditches due to the accumulated snow on area
roadways. At press time, west of Abilene had more
snow accumulated on roadways, but all areas of the
Big Country have a significant amount of snow.
"Just a reminder that elevated structures such as
bridges will freeze first for those that have emergencies
and have to drive in this treacherous conditions," said
Dean. "Allow extra following distance, slow down and
leave the cruise control off," he added.
