As the float season winds down for our Deer Park Float association and our Miss Deer Park representatives for 2019, they ended the year on a high note! The group brought home the Grand Sweepstakes honors from Odessa the 2nd to last weekend in September, and from Leavenworth the final weekend in September. Congratulations to each person who helped to bring the magic of this year’s Lion King theme to life — the surrounding communities did indeed hear Deer Park roar!
Most people in Deer Park want a local police force but their biggest concern is cost. I agree. I don’t want to raise taxes or break the bank for a local department. And although many people say there have been studies done on the cost of starting a police force, the city has no record of any studies ever done. And for all the people who have said they have run the numbers, no one has ever shown me any of their numbers.
