NEWS & UPDATES
Warning! Danger! Beware!
A holiday weekend is coming up and we will be having an influx of people here in Ivanhoe enjoying the beautiful surroundings.
If you decide to go out walking or riding on your golf cart, please do not go near the 200 block of Sir Henry Dr.
A court order has been issued for the removal/disposal of between 30-50 unvaccinated dogs. The owner of these animals has been bitten and is very concerned about them attacking someone else.
The City and the Court have been reaching out to many different organizations/sources to seek help in disposing of these unadoptable animals. On two previous occasions, the Houston SPCA has come out to Ivanhoe to remove dogs from the same location but we have been informed that they cannot assist us with the current situation.
Sadly there is no animal control program in Tyler County and we certainly do not have the budget to maintain one here in Ivanhoe.
We are still attempting to find a humane solution to this huge problem but in the meantime, PLEASE DO NOT GO NEAR THIS LOCATION! This has become a health and safety issue that has to be dealt with and we will be moving as quickly as possible to resolve the issue.
Ivanhoe is getting a Dollar General!!
I received a very exciting phone call last night. The person contracted to clear the land for a Dollar General store was wanting to know exactly where he was to be working!
Dollar General will be opening by the end of this year! It will be located in Ivanhoe on Hwy 69 south of the entrance at the end of the acceleration lane!
We did not want to make the formal announcement until we were absolutely sure that it was going to happen but that time has come!
Reminder from our City Marshal’s office:
If you have an emergency/urgent situation, please dial 911. DO NOT CALL THE CITY MARSHAL’S OFFICE. You will get the help you need much more rapidly if you call 911. If our Marshal or his Deputies are on duty, they will be notified immediately by the Dispatcher. If they are not, the Dispatcher will send a County Deputy. Remember, due to limited funds, we do not have our City Marshal/Deputies on duty full time.
If your situation is not an emergency, call the Marshal’s office at 409-283-2223. If no one is there, leave a message and your call will be returned.
