We would like to thank those folks who have signed up to run for city council. We sincerely appreciate your willingness to serve. The candidates for the three council positions in the order they will appear on the November ballot are:

1. Rowland Priddy
2. James Beattie
3. Tommy Morris
4. David Herrington

Only one person signed up for the one year term, so Chuck Vonderlin will be filling that position.

Again, thanks to all of you.

Cathy Bennett

Burn Ban in Effect

The City of Ivanhoe has instituted a Burn Ban within the City Limits, effecive as of noon Tuesday, August 4, and continuing in effect until August 14. The action is being taken as a result of extremely dry and hot conditions that have existed since mid June.

The City of Ivanhoe Emergency Management Coordinator made the recommendation for the Burn Ban within the city in conjunction with the Burn Ban that has been placed in effect for Tyler County. City Council will re-assess the weather conditions and any additional recommendations from the Emergency Management Coordinator to continue or discontinue the Burn Ban during the regular Council meeting at 6:30 PM on Aug. 13.
