ANGELINA COUNTY, TX (KTRE) -

The Board of Supervisors for the Angelina Co. Fresh Water District No. 1, approved the proposed sewer line on FM 2251 during a meeting Monday night. He said they also approved the $32.50 new members will be charged for the line.

They also approved an extension program for those who recently installed on-site septic systems, otherwise known as aerobic systems. Kelley Holcomb, general manager of the Angelina & Neches River Authority, said those that have complied with state statues and invested in the systems for the next two years will most likely be exempt from having to get on the sewer line. However, right now the Board of Supervisors has not actually issued that exemption just yet. They have just approved an extension to include those who recently installed those systems.

The first petition, signed by 50 members of the Cedar Grove community, called for a cessation to signing a note to borrow any money without a vote of water supply district customers. The board voted down that petition.

The second petition, called for an election of the members of the board for the terms that have expired or vacated within 30 days with installation within 24 hours of the final count of ballots cast.

Holcomb said the district cannot call for an election based on Section 41.001 of the election code, which states that elections can be held on the second Saturday in May in an even-numbered year or on the first Tuesday after the first Monday in November. The board has agreed to do that election in November
