CONCRETE PAVING MACHINE

Beginning Monday, Nov. 20, this machine will begin pouring 9 inches of concrete on top of and through a layer of rebar, which is above an asphalt layer on the improved and hardened base of Verhoeven Road. The Lamb County-owned road, formerly known as Denim Road, runs north and south between FM Highway 54 and the Santa Fe Railroad and US Highway 84, along the east side of the new construction of Select Milk Producers, Inc. The $2.5 million road project is due to be completed by mid December. Work is yet to be done over the railroad, off of Highway 84 and Delano Avenue. Lamb County received two grants to fund the special project, to accommodate the many milk trucks that will be driving on it. A Texas Community Development Block Grant, and a Federal Economic Development Grant from the Federal Economic Development Department, have been received.

Lamb County Treasurer seeks re-election

Jerry Yarbrough has contacted the Lamb County Leader-News, to let the citizens of Lamb County know she is seeking to return to her job as County Treasurer.

“Today, I would like to announce my decision to seek reelection as the Lamb County Treasurer. I would be honored if you would consider trusting me again to be your treasurer.”

“During my current term, I have worked extremely hard to maximize benefits to employees, while minimizing taxes to Lamb County citizens.”

“I implemented a Healthy County Program. This program not only provides valuable information to improve employee health, but also gives benefits to employees such as gift cards and fit bits at no cost to the employees nor the county. As a side benefit, the program keeps health insurance costs down for our county.”
