Sulphur Springs Home Building Aided by '380' Tax Relief

City of Sulphur Springs, Facebook

Emily Glass, our commentator on events in Sulphur Springs, discusses recent action by the City Council to grant relief on delinquent property taxes to allow new home construction to take place.  Several homes are being built thanks to the "380 agreements."  Also, the Hopkins County Commissioners Court has approved a tax abatement plant to allow a solar farm to be built in the northwest part of the county.  Emily is the co-ower of the Venue at two-19, and the former mayor of Sulphur Springs.

John Mark Dempsey is the host of the public interest program The Blacklands Café from KETR News. Dempsey is also the play-by-play announcer for Commerce Tigers Football on 88.9 FM and on ketr.org.
