Both towns have been working on repairs to their water distribution and delivery systems.

  • Boil water notices remain in effect today in two Northeast Texas towns. Both Wolfe City and Ladonia have boil water notices in place. In Wolfe City, a boil notice was issued on Tuesday. Wednesday night, Wolfe City government posted on its Facebook page that repairs to a water break were ongoing and that the boil water notice will remain in effect until further notice. In Ladonia, a boil notice was issued on Monday and no updates have been published since then. Water users are advised to boil water for two minutes before using for drinking or cooking.
  • In Greenville, the city council has approved the municipal property tax rate for the current fiscal year. The rate of 56.9 cents per $100 of appraised value is about one tenth of a cent lower than the rate that had been published in this year’s proposed budget. The Greenville Herald banner reports the budget includes a five percent raise for Greenville police and firefighters, and a 2 percent raise for other City of Greenville staff. Greenville mayor Jerry Ransom told the Herald Banner that taking into account high property values and lowered tax rates, the tax bill for a home valued at $100,000 has risen about $75 over the past two years.
