City Takes Over Billing For Sanitation Service

Effectively immediately, the City of Dalhart is taking over the billing and collecting of charges for the Sanitation department’s trash and garbage service. The announcement was made this morning by Mayor E.G. Schuhart, II. He explained that the Southwestern Public Service Co. has changed its billing setup so that it can no longer handle the billing and collection of charges for the City sanitation department as it has been doing. Accounts will be payable in the city manager’s office in the city hall. The city is now getting out explanatory letters, and enclosing the bill for April garbage and trash services. This amount will be payable by May 17. Bills for services in May and each month thereafter, Mayor Schuhart said, will be payable by the tenth of the month following service. Statements will be mailed the first of each month. The mayor said advance payments can be made for three, six, nine or twelve months if the patron finds that more convenient.

What they say of Dalhart’s Paving

Dalhart is wide awake on the paving question – some under way and more warming up, says the Clayton News. “Five years ago Clayton had the fever and three years ago a remittent attack. The pulse runs slow and will continue in that channel till another boom comes. A good many Texas counties are paving the Colorado- to-Gulf highway. Think of it, going out of town with no nice paving. Such a suggestion for Union County would scare the tax payers stiff – those that are not stiff already.
