Jul 31, 2017

Volunteer patrols of the Trail de Paris are off to a successful start, the Greenville YMCA is now completely open, and mosquito trucks are on the move in Commerce.


The Greenville YMCA is back in full swing at its old location, including the “new” outdoor pool, which is the old pool, minus the room that was destroyed in a spring thunderstorm. Residents might want to take a dip this afternoon, when sunny skies are assured. Intermittent rain chances are in the forecast for Tuesday through Saturday.

The City of Greenville will be conduct a review of the city’s charter, beginning with a public meeting on at 5:30 p.m. on Thu., Aug. 3.


Mosquito trucks will spray parts of Commerce this evening, and again on Tue. Aug. 1, and Wed., Aug. 2. Last week, a mosquito gathered from Pecan Street, located near the Commerce City Park, tested positive for the West Nile Virus. No human cases of West Nile Virus have been reported in Northeast Texas.


Paris Police Chief Bob Hundley has reported positive results from a new initiative involving citizen volunteer patrols of the Trail de Paris. The program began in July, and Hundley reports no calls for police service on the trail since the program began. The volunteer patrols are scheduled to continue in August, and anyone interested in helping should contact the Paris Police Department.
