On Jan. 14, the Humble City Council swore Paula Settle into office. She recently won her seat with a one-vote majority in December in a run-off election.
Those who won awards for the city’s Christmas Decorating Contest were announced. All awards will be given out at a later meeting.
Next, a video presentation was given by Humble ISD Boardmember Robert Sitton. “I’d like to share with you several groundbreaking initiatives in the 2018 large, multimillion-dollar bond that has forwarded the landscape of several educational facilities in the Humble city limits,” he said.
The video showcased projects such as Lakewood Elementary School’s relocation and the state-of-the-art updates coming to Humble High School.
Sitton added, “Humble ISD has always placed an enormous emphasis on preserving historical facilities, repurposing and remembering our past. Many of you know that the site of the recently dedicated Humble Museum once belonged to Humble ISD. It was a place of education when many went home for lunch and the auditorium doubled as a gymnasium.”
Stacy Williams, president of the Humble Rodeo, gave the next presentation while encouraging all attendees to come to the rodeo events, saying, “On Jan. 29 and 30, folks will compete for your delectable attention at the Humble BBQ Cookoff. The carnival will take place Jan. 29 through Feb. 6. Finally, Feb. 5-6, the Humble Rodeo will take center stage with amazing musical artists and talented guests. Many thanks to the Humble City Council for the multi-year sponsorship of these great family events.”
The council gave a sweet and heartfelt farewell to Humble City Councilmember Allan Steagall, who retired from public office.
City Councilmember David Pierce proclaimed his personal excitement at the approval of street closures April 9-10 for the Good Oil Days Festival.
