Colmesneil Mayor Don Baird and others have met with the contractors and anticipate that construction on the new Volunteer Fire Department will begin May 2.
The City Council convened later in the month than normal because of spring break on April 15 and approved the minutes from the previous meeting.
It is official now, and the City will open accounts with the new Citizens State Bank in Colmesneil as soon as it opens shortly after May 2.
The FY2013 audit report was tabled for review and will be taken up at the next meeting.
Baird also met with Colmesneil Interim Superintendent Elton Hightower, and they plan to talk about a more concerted effort to up the publicity on Lake Tejas (see LakeTejas.org).
The City will be hosting a National Day of Prayer Service on May 1, at 12 noon, at the City Hall, and all are invited.
