At the May 6 Jourdanton City Council meeting, Mayor Robert “Doc” Williams signed the proclamation declaring May 13-18 as Police Week.
Jourdanton Chief of Police Eric Kaiser said “Yesterday, and this morning as a matter of fact, officers gathered in Austin at the State Capitol and were addressed by the Governor. We’ll be doing some events here locally with the school and you’ll notice next week there will be a police flag flying on the third pole for that one week. We appreciate you recognizing the people of our department and other local departments that do the job we do.”
Mayor Williams recognized City Secretary Debbie Molina and signed the proclamation declaring Municipal Clerks Week, May 5-11. The proclamation recognized that municipal clerks are a vital part of local government and that the office is the oldest among public servants.
Williams extended appreciation to Molina for the vital services she performs and exemplary dedication. Molina said that she went to her first Texas Municipal Clerks Certification Program. It covers many aspects such as municipal budget, election laws, public management, administrative and the Open Meetings Act. Upon completion in about 2 1/2 years, Molina will earn certification. She thanked Schulz for allowing her to start this program.
