New JC Police Station under construction

CONSTRUCTION PROGRESS on the new Jacinto City Police Station is obvious, with the structural steel erected, and last week the concrete was poured for the second floor. This building will replace the existing station and is being built just behind it on Market Street. (Photo by Allan Jamail)

JACINTO CITY – Workers have erected the steel frame for the new two story police station, and last week poured the concrete for the second floor. Utility lines are now being installed, and the exterior skin of the building will be next.

The new building replaces the existing 50 year old station, which has had major electrical and roof problems in the last few years. It will be demolished after the new station is complete.

The new station will meet modern life safety codes and will be very energy efficient. In addition to areas for general police work, there will be several holding cells, offices, a workout room, fingerprint lab and a large conference room that will also serve as the Emergency Operations Center during disasters. In addition there will be 9 holding cells, 6 for men and 3 for women.

BBB’s Parsons has advice for Chamber

DAN PARSONS, PRESIDENT BETTER BUSINESS BUREAU

The North Channel Chamber heard from Dan Parsons of the Houston Better Business Bureau at their last luncheon.

Parsons has been with the Better Business Bureau since 1983, and president since 2002.

In that time, he had seen every type of bad business practice, and dishonest scams. Parsons worked his way up in the BBB, serving as Director of Investigations, and various management positions. But no one in Houston knows business practices and problems better than Parsons.

Parsons spoke about the history of the Better Business Bureau nationally, which was founded in 1912. The first case they undertook to solve involved Coca-Cola and its cocaine-related ingredient.

The Houston office of the BBB now had 58 employees, he said, and its membership is over 500 local businesses. The Houston office serves 11 counties in south Texas, including Harris County. The first companies to join the Houston BBB were Exxon, the Houston Chronicle, and Foley’s department store.

The Better Business Bureau offers 5 services to its members:
