An introduction to Hill Country Children's Advocacy Center (HCCA) was on the Granite Shoals City Council agenda Tuesday night and HCCA Executive Director Kelly Forister received a warm welcome.

HCCA was created in 1992 to resolve inconsistencies inherent in investigations of child abuse and to stop the re-victimization of children being seen in agencies around the country responsible for protecting them. The center, through its Sunshine House in Burnet, provides forensic interviews and exams, trauma-informed counseling, as an interface among agencies and as an education provider for families, communities and law enforcement.

The Granite Shoals City Council on Tuesday night (Jan. 9) gave city staff the nod to negotiate a contract with K.C. Engineering, Inc. for development of the specifications for the city's road bond project.

“Three companies responded to the city's request for qualifications,” said Assistant City Manager Peggy Allen Smith. “The staff recommended K.C. Engineering in Marble Falls.

“After we negotiate a contract that is approved by the council, we expect it to take a couple of months to draw up specification of contractor bids. That keeps us on the schedule we have been estimating, with paving work going on between August and October.”

Water notices

Smith, who serves also as utility director, said residents could expect another notice with their water bills for a fourth quarter sample of trihalomethanes (TTHM) that exceeded the Texas Commission for Environmental Quality (TCEQ) limit.
