Come show your support for County Commissioner Joe Roland!
Commissioner Roland continues to stand strong for us against the 130 Landfill. So to show our appreciation for his unwavering commitment to keep our community environmentally clean and toxic-free, on Sunday, April 23, 2017, there will be a friendly rally held at the Lytton Springs General Store from 2:00 p.m. until 5:00 p.m. There will be guest speakers to provide information and an update on our fight against the 130 Landfill. Free sausage wraps and beverages will be provided. Please bring your family and friends!
THEN, on Monday, April 24, 2017 at 7:00 p.m., the Commissioner’s Court will be held in the evening instead of the usual 9:00 a.m. time. This will allow Caldwell County residents to show up in number to show the Judge and County Commissioners that WE DO NOT WANT A LANDFILL IN OUR COMMUNITY!
Please arrive no later than 6:45 p.m., but citizens who wish to speak should arrive about 6:30 p.m. to sign up. (Each person is allotted four minutes.)
PLEASE put this on your calendar and come – even if you do not wish to speak! This is our opportunity to pack the courtroom to stand against the dump!

SAVE THE DATE: We are rallying in Lytton Springs at the General Store on FM 1854, with GOOD EATS to show our Commissioner of Precinct 4 how much we appreciate him fighting for us against this landfill and host agreement. Please come on out Sunday, April 23, 2017, from 2-5 p.m. to meet Joe Roland if you have not done so yet. Joe has made it possible for your voice to be heard on the 24th at 7 pm if you have not been able to attend Commissioners Court during the day. Joe needs to know how much we are behind him and that we want to help him and convince the court to keep fighting this landfill and host agreement. BUMP THE DUMP!
SAVE THE DATE ***THIS IS IMPORTANT*** Your commissioner’s court voted to have a special evening session of the court for those citizens who want to let the court know how they feel about the proposed 130 landfill and your county signing a host agreement with the landfill company but many of you have not been able to get there during the morning sessions. You can voice your concerns about that landfill and host agreement starting at 7:00pm on April 24, 2017. If you plan to speak, I would advise you to arrive by 6:00pm to sign up to address the court and as during a regular session, proper courtroom attire is required (no shorts, etc.), speakers are usually limited to a 4 minute time limit. Bring your friends and neighbors for support. Joe Roland has asked the court specifically to do this for those citizens that cannot attend the court hearings during the 9:00am meetings. Make sure you let your Caldwell County neighbors know as well as ask them to TELL OTHERS about this important meeting. The normal Commissioners Court meetings fall on the 2nd and 4th Mondays of each month. Please show up to let the whole court and all the commissioners and judge know how you feel about the proposed landfill as well as the host agreement. This is your chance to voice directly to your representatives in Caldwell County. The Court meets on the second floor of the courthouse on the square in Lockhart. Please tell your friends all over Caldwell County and spread the word as not everyone sees these posts.
