BEEVILLE – City Council members were informed during their April 10 meeting that the City of Beeville had received a Water Fluoridation Quality Award.
The award was from the U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention.
City Secretary Gabriela Hernandez said the city had received the award based on reports from 2016.
Beeville was one of 66 municipalities in the state to receive the award.
The council also voted to provide the Bee County Chamber of Commerce with $140,000 from the city’s Hotel and Motel Occupancy Tax Fund.
CofC Executive Director Tracy Florence said the organization had a $30,000 carry-over from last year’s donation to the chamber.
She said that would give the organization $170,000 in HOT fund revenue to use for advertising and promoting tourism in the county.
In other business, the council voted to adopt some changes in the city’s employee handbook.
