The City of Borger has officially taken action to participate in the issuing of revenue bonds by the Canadian River Municipal Water Authority.
Action was taken by the Borger City Council earlier this month to authorize participation in the CRMWAâ€™s Subordinate Lien Revenue Bonds, Series 2011, and approve an amendment to the City of Borgerâ€™s conjunctive use groundwater supply agreement with CRMWA.
Local fire crews responded to a grass fire near Skellytown Wednesday afternoon.
Crews began fighting the fire around noon. The fire was about six miles east from Carson County on Highway 152, approaching the Hutchinson County lines.
It caused the closure of the highway, sending traffic through Panhandle. The call was reported at 11:10 a.m. and was put out at 2 p.m.
Skellytown and Panhandle Fire Departments first responded to the scene and eventually asked for mutual aid, bringing in Hoover, White Deer, Borger, Stinnett, and Hutchinson County.
