STINNETT – The Hutchinson County Commissioner’s sent a clear message to the federal government on Monday morning during their meeting. They aren’t opposed to housing needy immigrant children ... but they don’t want to be footing the bill at local taxpayers’ expense.
When it comes to rainfall, residents of Hutchinson County had two reasons to be thrilled to see precipitation falling from the sky. The rain was desperately needed for crops, and, even more so, it was needed to help add water to Lake Meredith.
Hutchinson County could soon find itself telling victims of the May 11 wildfire they can’t dispose of their debris at the designated dump site in Fritch. And, according to county officials, it will have to happen sooner rather than later in order to facilitate the removal of the debris by outside companies.
