New fire truck depends on land sell

 

Yorktown City Council could possibly make just over a half a million dollars if the property owned by the city on Lee Alves Road sells for the asking price.
 
The city approved plans to sell the 137.9 acres where the city dump site used to be located. During deliberation in the executive session the council came to terms that the land must bring in a minimum of $4,500 dollars per acre and that the city reserved the right to reject any and all bids that came any lower than $620,550.
 
“The city is looking to buy the fire department a new fire truck. That cost is anywhere from $250,000-$300,000 and the rest of the monies will go into the enterprise fund,” said Yorktown mayor Rene Hernandez.

Thanksgiving meal offered Thursday at OLG Parish Hall

 

Carolina “Carrie” Liendo Ruiz and her sister Felomena “Felia” Nava used to help people by providing whatever they had in their pantry until 1994 when they started cooking Thanksgiving dinners to the needy or to those who did not want to spend Thanksgiving alone.
 
Carrie’s son, David Ruiz, said, “My mom organized it and I coordinated it. [Nearly] the whole family is involved – brothers, sisters, and cousins. People who knew my family started to get involved such as close friends.”
 
Carrie died in 2007 and Felia died in 2012 but the spirit of giving continued on. David’s niece Isabel Patton has been operating “Let’s Stand Together” since 2007.
