The City of Slaton read two proclamations and conducted several public hearings during a busy regular monthly meeting Monday (July 10) at City Hall.

It also swore in Tony Newton as Commissioner Ward I.

City Secretary canvassed the runoff election, stating that Newton received 60 votes while challenger Mike DeLano received 26.

Mayor Clif Shaw then read two proclamations.

One was honoring the Slaton Fire Department for continued life saving efforts during an busy month for the department.

He also read one for the Slaton Harvey House, designating it as a Texas State Historical Site.

The first public hearing was on the Community Resiliency Program.

Kay Howard reported they have been working on finalizing the Senior Citizens Center project, but have made some changes. One of the changes was the current building would remain up for some time after the project was completed.

She said the grant would not allow demolition of the old building, but would also allow the Center to have some storage space.

Howard added they are hoping to solicit bids starting in August, receive them by September and start building in October. The project must be completed by November 2024.
