CLUTE SUPPORTS BWA BOND PLAN
Clute City Council became the latest city to pass a resolution supporting the Brazosport Water Authority’s plan to issue up to $59 million in revenue bonds, joining Lake Jackson and Richwood.
The vote Thursday night moves the potable water provider for the region one step closer to being able to issue the bonds, which will go toward construction of a desalination plant, and supply station and pipeline required to supply water to Rosenberg.
Client cities still needing to pass a resolution of support are Angleton, Brazoria, Freeport and Oyster Creek.

WEST COLUMBIA POLICE LOOKING FOR COMMUNITY VOLUNTEERS
The West Columbia Police Department is recruiting volunteers to help with its community outreach programs.
According to the department’s Facebook page, Police Chief Paul Odin has started the new Volunteers in Policing outreach program, looking for people who are interested and have the time to aid in current department projects.
“We need help with several programs, like Senior Moments, animal control, Medical Points of Distribution Center and several new programs we wish to start for our community,” the social media post states.
Volunteers in Policing is another community outreach program started by Odin as a way for the police department to better connect with residents, one of the chief’s main goals when taking the top cop spot in 2013.
