INFRASTRUCTURE City Council took a huge step of progress in their Oct. 17 meeting--moving ahead with the East Wastewater Treatment Plant construction. It’s a major infrastructure project that began in 2018 with an estimated cost of less than $10 million. Unnecessary delays and the pandemic slowed progress and raised the current cost to more than $34 million. The City, now and in the future, needs this new state-of-the-art facility which will transform residents’ wastewater into water that is cleaner than Lake Granbury. It’s an example of perseverance toward the goal of raising the quality of life of Granbury residents.

PUBLIC SAFETY The City of Granbury took the lead in linking multiple private and government agencies in a radio system that may be the only one of its kind in Texas. The new Granbury Regional Radio Network connects Texas EMS, Air Evac and CareFlite medical transport companies, Hood and Erath County Sheriff’s Offices and Volunteer Fire Departments, the Stephenville Police and Fire Departments, Tarleton State University, the TX Dept. of Public Safety, TX Parks & Wildlife Dept., US Marshals Service and the host agency, the Granbury Police Department. First responders using the Granbury Regional Radio Network have a greater ability to deliver life-saving emergency services every day. It’s another way the City of Granbury is working for residents.
