Edward Gonzales, Sanitation Truck Driver for the City of Big Spring, was recognized as the October 2018 Star Employee at last night’s meeting of the Big Spring City Council. Mayor Larry McLellan advised that Gonzales had been conducting his normal duties along his route when he noticed that a woman was having a seizure outside of her home. Gonzales then responded to aid the woman by calling 9-1-1 and stayed with her until help arrived. Mayor McLellan noted that Gonzales had gone beyond the call of duty and that city was proud to have him as a member of the City of Big Spring staff.
During the meeting, there was a first reading of a new city ordinance that prohibited the use of recreational off-road vehicles in city parks, with exceptions. It was noted that penalty would be a fine in the amount between $50 to $200.
The council members also approved the boards and committees’ listings and resignations, with the exception of the Convention & Visitors Bureau Board. It was noted that they would continue to accept applications for this board for 2 more weeks.
