According to Clay, since the city owns the building, it should fix the roof.
“We feel like it’s their building and it needs to be replaced,” she said. “We would love for the city to step up and fix our roof. We’ve got to get that roof fixed one way or another.”
According to Hill, the Texas Commission on Environmental Quality (TCEQ) contacted the county shortly after the tornado to emphasize that no exemptions applied to what was acceptable for outdoor burning. Trees, brush, natural material and domestic waste — what normally is thrown in kitchen trash — can be burned.
Items prohibited include tires, plastics, furniture, carpet, shingles, etc.
Burning is to be conducted during daylight hours, when wind is less then 23 mph, and a responsible person is present during active burning.
Hill is also reminding affected residents to be careful when contracting with home repair and tree trimming services.
