Hewitt, TX — The Hewitt City Council is expected to approve a $3.85 million bond buy at tonight’s meeting.
The purchase of the bonds will cost the average homeowner in Hewitt around 25 bucks.
The money will fund the city’s future plans of a joint fire and police complex.
The project has been a topic of city leaders for the past decade and though taxes will raise, the city and most citizens understand it is time.
“Anytime you talk about taxes somebody’s going to be concerned about that and have questions about how its going to affect them," said Adma Miles, City Manager of Hewitt. But at the same time, if you have been through our police department or fire department, you know that Hewitt is due for this investment.”
The first step after possible approval is finding an adequate location and contracting architects for the design layout.
