Council makes livestock ordinance clear

The Friona City Council met in regular session on Tuesday, October 10, 2017 in the Council Chambers at 619 Main Street.

Among the agenda items was a resolution to designate the Friona Star as the city’s official newspaper and an ordinance amending the Friona Municipal Code concerning the prohibition of bovine and equine animals within the city limits, except for in-transit. The ordinance made clear that livestock was not allowed within the city limits of Friona.

The council approved the nomination of Alan Monroe and Mitchell Smiley to serve on the Parmer County Appraisal District Board of Directors for a term of two years 2018-2019.

Danny Kendrick and Justin Jeter were appointed to serve on the Friona Economic Development Board of Directors for a two-year term.

City Manager Patricia Phipps efficiently discussed the September accounts payable, financial statement and the quarterly financial statement before the council voted to approve each item.

Friona Police Chief Isidro Jimenez addressed the board and informed them of the September 2017 statistics for the department. He stated that they have one officer in training attending the academy and were opening up applications to replace Officer Joe Orozco who was recently named the Bovina Police Chief. For more information on the statistics see The Mayor’s Minutes on page 2.

The City Council will meet again on Monday, November 13 in regular session. All meetings are open to the public with the agenda being posted 72 hours prior to the meeting. The council chambers are wheelchair accessible and accessible parking spaces are available.
