GALENA PARK CITY COUNCIL MEETING last Tuesday night. L to R, Attorney John Hightower, Councilmen Rodney Chersky and Oscar Silva Jr., Mayor Esmeralda Moya, Councilmen Eric Broussard and Barry Ponder, and City Secretary Mayra Gonzales.

GALENA PARK – The new city council held its second regular meeting since taking office on May 17, and they had a full agenda.

But unlike the rancor and uncertainty that characterized last term’s governing sessions, this meeting was conducted in an orderly and efficient manner.

Important business that was conducted included amending a city ordinance to eliminate the position of City Administrator; hiring a law firm to collect unpaid back taxes; approving the replacement of all 349 street lights in the city with new, more efficient LED bulbs; opening bids to demolish old units at the wastewater treatment plant; affirming a contract with LJA Engineering for waterline rehabilitation; and elimination of the city’s Reserve Police Force.

Other business included the hiring of various positions to fill vacancies in city personnel. Commissioner Ponder raised the question of whether police position candidates had been properly interviewed, and voted “No” when the issue went to vote.

The audience participated in an orderly fashion, pointing out to Council various problems within the city that needed maintenance.

NORTH SHORE Rotary Club distributes books to elementary students

De Zavala Elementary School students received free books from North Shore Rotary Club.

De Zavala Elementary School students received free books from North Shore Rotary Club.

When Rotarian Derrill Painter viewed the award-winning video, “Eradicating Illiteracy” he was inspired to help the students in the North Shore areas. Sheila Armstrong, a Rotarian-plus Chair of Houston Team First Book and Producer of the video, plus Jon King of Sharpstown Rotary, presented the video at a Rotary District Membership Meeting.

Immediately Derrill saw an opportunity to make a difference in the lives of children in the North Shore Rotary’s service area. “Our club approved $2,500 to purchase books for service projects at Cloverleaf and Dezavala Elementary Schools. Children are our future and one of Rotary International’s areas of focus is literacy worldwide. The ability to read is the basis of all learning, so making books available to a child is the most wonderful gift that we could ever bestow upon them,” said Derrill.
