City Wide Clean Up

Monday, April 10, 2017 - Posted by Coleman Connected, in General News., Events and announcements, City news

 
Let's keep Coleman Beautiful.
City Wide Cleanup: May 6-13
Contact the Chamber at:  625-2163 for more information.


City wide Cleanup Planned for City of Coleman


A clean up campaign has been planned for Coleman beginning May 6-13. This project is
a result of planning by the community pride committee of Vision Coleman. A grant in
the amount of $9,975 from 4-B is seeding funding for the effort. Additional grants are
being pursued at this time. Costs for disposal are expected to reach some $25,000.

The Coleman City Council voted 4-0 to back the effort by waiving fees at the
convenience center for the duration of the week of the event. Liz Campbell, City Utilities
Director has arranged for placement of 3 additional dumpsters at the Convenience center
and 4 others at a central location in the city. Dennis Stroebel owner of The Shopping
Basket has volunteered use of vacant property located on East Walnut for placement of
the 4 Dumpsters. Jody Payne, Street Supervisor for the city is directing efforts on street
sweeping, brush chipping and convenience center operations for the event. David
Martinez, Fire Chief of the City is at work Identifying debris and structures that could
threaten public safety, and Connie Echols as Code Enforcement officer is notifying
property owners who are in violation of City Code. City Manager Paul Catoe will serve
as overseer of all city government efforts as well as compliance with existing statues.
Mary Griffth, Chamber of Commerce Executive Director, has volunteered to serve as a
call center for elderly or disabled persons who need assistance in cleaning their property,
or who have brush that needs to be chipped.

The telephone number for The Chamber is 625-2163. Volunteers are being sought to assist those in need and can call this number to have their name placed on the list of helpers in the project. Church Groups and Civic
Clubs are encouraged to be involved.

It should be noted that the dumpsters and use of city facilities and services are by law
limited to use by residents of the City of Coleman. It should be noted that tires, batteries,
paint, oil, chemicals, rocks, and appliances are not allowed in the dumpsters.
Negotiations are underway with recycling companies to dispose of these items and
announcements of central disposal locations for them in the next week.
Residents of the city are encouraged to remove unsightly items from their properties
during the cleanup as well as mowing tall grass and weeds from their area.

It is the goal of this effort to improve the appearance of the city.

Big Deal downtown Coleman.

Saturday, March 11, 2017 - Posted by Craig, in General News., Events and announcements, City news



Have you noticed, Coleman is growing downtown and it is truly a big deal.  If you haven't strolled along the streets lately, this is the perfect time to come join the fun and see what's new and support Coleman!

.




Saturday, March 25th, promises to be one of those weekends you really just don't want to miss.  There's going to be lots to do and of course a chance to win the Aaron Watson guitar is really just icing on the cake.

See you there!

Max needs a new home.

Friday, May 08, 2015, in General News., Events and announcements


Hi, I'm Max. Ain't I handsome?! Well, I've got the goods to go with my looks. I've been to school and try real hard to be a good boy. I've been a house dog, but I'll stay in the yard if I have to as long as you've got a nice shelter and dog house for me. I'm not sure what breed mix I am. Dad may have had some Chow-Chow in him since I've got some black spots on my tongue. Mom? Probably some Setter or Retriever. Doesn't really matter. I'm just Max, and I'm waiting for you to reply to this post or call Sue at the Humane Society 325-636-8945 so you can come take me home. I'm neutered, house-trained, current on my vaccinations, about 5 years old, and ready to roll.

Electrical petitions will be on the city council agenda this Thursday

Tuesday, May 05, 2015 - Posted by Craig Allen, in Events and announcements, City news



The two electrical petitions will be on the City council agenda this Thursday.

More than 500 people have signed the petitions to lower our electrical rate and to sell the electrical system so that Coleman families can have relief from these horrific rates and local businesses can compete with their neighbors.
 
The petition has been certified by the city secretary and has been found to be sufficient, meaning it both complies with the charter’s requirements of a valid petition as well as it has a sufficient number of registered voters.
 
At this city council meeting, the city secretary will announce those results, but more importantly, the city council will discuss and most likely take some form of action on the petitions.
May 7th, 6:00 PM
  City Council Chambers, City Hall. Liveoak.

The actions that are possible are:
 
Table the discussions for a future date.
 
Vote on and adopt (pass) the two petitions (ordinances) as they are without change.
 
Vote to put the two ordinances on a ballot within 90 days to allow the citizens to vote on these items.
 
Add their own version of the ordinance(s) and place theirs along with the citizens’ version on the ballot.
 
Ignore or deny the petition(s) and simply refuse to put the ordinances on the ballot by trying to say the people do not have a right to petition on this subject as it is too complex of an issue for people to understand and they do not have enough facts.
 
This last choice is strictly against Coleman’s charter, but it very likely that this is what they will do even though the people have shouted clearly and are demanding that they be allowed to vote.
 
This is a critical time for Coleman. You have spoken up by signing the petitions; it is now important that you contact your council member and let them know you want these petitions to go to the vote of the people.
 
That is what democracy is all about. You have asked our city leaders to allow you to vote on these very important maters, and this is what you expect them to do.  Uphold the charter, and bring these items to the vote of the people.
 
The city council meeting is at 6:00 pm, Thursday, May 7th 2015. We encourage you to please clear your schedule and attend this very important meeting.

Here the email addresses of the city council members and city manager.
Mayor Kay Joffrion -- kjoffrion@verizon.net
Councilman Johhny Needham -- councilmanneedham@yahoo.com
Councilman Danny Jameson  Danny.jameson@Colemanisd.net
Mayor Pro-Tem Gary Payne  glpayne1@verizon.net
City Manager Paul Catoe -- paul@web-access.net
