A private-public partnership between the city of Llano and a mining company has resulted in the removal of several tons of river sand from two lakes in the community, increasing domestic water storage capacity.

On Sept. 27, Llano officials said they welcomed the continuation of a 10-year dredging contract with Collier Materials through 2025 due to the success of the project, which involves the company mining river sand and paying the city to take it away.

The attorney for Llano Police Chief Kevin Ratliff said Thursday his client has done nothing wrong and is looking forward to his case being “set for trial as soon as the law allows us.”

“Unless there is some evidence out there that I don't know of which convinces me otherwise, I believe my client has done nothing wrong,” said defense attorney Austin Shell. “I believe his presence prevented a situation from getting out of hand and he handled the situation calmly and coolly and his actions prevented a man from being tased.”
