  • 9. What regulations are there for drones? A drone appeared a few feet higher than our back fence one night last week between 8 and 10 PM. That felt quite creepy. A family member said it had video capacity. The same location was operating a drone back and forth from approx. Corsicana to the marsh and back on Saturday afternoon 11/7 flying higher than any trees. It was annoying the hawks nesting in trees nearby.

  • 11. Feeling negative here, somebody remind me again why it's more important to widen a new street and add curbs & sidewalk to it, on the East side of town, when the old side streets off of Kimberly, Elliott, Danrose, and surrounding neighborhoods, are horribly falling apart, and have been this way for many years? I am talking about the widening and sidewalk curb installation at Newell. That's great and all, but its not priority in my side of the tracks. what the heck?
