The Tira City Council met on Sunday, March 7, 2021 and voted to reopen the Tira Community Center for gatherings. Due to the continued need to keep people as safe as possible, the fee has been raised to $100 to help cover the expenses, including cleaning and disinfecting the building after each use. To reserve the Community Center call Janie Lewis at 903-945-2395.
Allen Joslin, Tira Mayor, led the group in discussions regarding upkeep and repairs and other routine business. Council Member Joyce Dodd gave an update on the Tira Food Pantry and contributions received. We want to express our appreciation to all the donors. Tony Macy, Tira Volunteer Fire Chief, presented a report about the department’s activities, needs, and upcoming training.
This is Spring Break week for many of the area schools. I hope to be able to report about some of those activities next week.
I always need and appreciate input from my friends to help keep me informed of news in our community. If you have any news pertaining to Tira residents, past or present, please contact me, Jan Vaughn, at 903-438-6688 or firstname.lastname@example.org.
