Council approves private gun range

The Friona city council meeting Monday was brief, starting at 6:30 p.m. and adjourning at 7:00 p.m. The council approved previous minutes, accounts payable, and May financial statement.

They heard the police department report from Sgt. Jesus San Miguel. He said in May there were 251 calls for service, they made 19 arrests and 144 traffic stops that included six no driver license, two DWI, and two driving with invalid license. It was also mentioned a man was subdued and arrested on 7th St. as he was reported knocking on doors asking for money or work. The man was pushing a small child in a stroller and became belligerent with officers. Drugs/alcohol may have been involved. The child was released to family members.

Jeremy Hart petitioned the council for approval of a private gun range at 715 Main St. The building is owned by the Hart family. He said the range would be limited to handguns, no rifles, and would not be used as a firing range until after 5:00 p.m. The range will not be open to the public but may be used for instruction and CHLs will not be offered. After a brief discussion the council approved the venture.

The next meeting of the city council will be Monday July 13 at 6:30 p.m. All council meetings are open to the public.
