Salado Village Voice put the following questions to the Mayoral and Aldermen candidates. Early voting begins on April 23.
Question 1: The projected initial demand on the sewer system is 341 Living Unit Equivalents (LUE) for a daily demand of 83,545 gallons per day, or about 40% percent of the total 200,000 gallon per day capacity. In its ninth year, it is projected to increase to 432 LUE and 105,840 GPD. Should the Village be considered with attracting more users to spread the costs of the sewer to a wider base and share the burden? If so, what steps can the Village take to do that? (250 words)
Question 2: There are several residential subdivisions being platted and built in the Extra Territorial Jurisdiction (ETJ) of Salado. Should the Village try to attract them into annexing voluntarily into the city limits? If so, how? If not, why not (250 words)
Question 3: In terms of growth for the Village, do you want more residential rooftops, more businesses, both or neither? Why or why not? (150 words)

A few years ago, the Salado Community Foundation was established as a 501(c)f fully qualified non-profit working to improve the quality of life in Salado and the surrounding community. One of our main projects was the raising of funds to build and install two Gateway Signs that will adorn and provide direction on the north and south entrances to the Village of Salado on Texas Department of Transportation (TXDOT) rights of way.

AUSTIN, Texas – Texas is probably not the first place you think of when it comes to renewable energy, but the Lone Star State leads the nation in wind power.
Many, if not most, Texas residents are astonished at the diversity of wildlife that inhabits this great state of ours. The vast majority of the hundreds of varieties of fauna that reside here are not easily recognizable to most Texans. However, there is a “big-eared” fellow is so familiar to most everyone that even a professional hockey team in west Texas has donned the name based on it, and that animal is the well-known Black-tailed Jackrabbit.
If there’s anything we thought we knew about the GOP, it is that it is the party of Reagan.
