Ask The Mayor
-1st a complement; I had been out of town showing horses in St. Louis,
Mo. & returned home to see the bright street lights on new 34, they
look wonderful. 2nd a gripe; I still have a problem that smokers do
not think that a butt is trash. Sitting on 205 near hwy 80 look at all
the butts along the curb, surely someone can sweep them up once a week!
I also wish we could just mow one strip next to the highway from Colquit
to Walmart. Would make a pleasant visual as we enter town. First impressions
can not be unseen!
Answer - Thanks for your inquiry.
Appearance of Terrell is important to us and that includes
highways that should be maintained by the State of Texas.
The City of Terrell has contracted a private company to maintain
the 80/205 intersection, west to the spur 557 bridge. Annual
Terrell city taxpayer cost for this state right-of-way trash
collection and mowing is approximately $20,000. Limited resources
do not provide for city maintenance from 80/205 intersection,
north on state highway 205. Please contact your current state
representative - Dr. Stuart Spitzer - and voice your concern
about state highway appearances.
D.J. Ory, Mayor
