There's a noticeable change in scenery as you look toward Ninth Street, the absence of the Ninth Street water tower. The tower was demolished this past weekend. The tower was built in 1955, and supplied water to Terrell residents until 2011, when it was taken out of service. The Terrell city council voted in July to hire Whittaker-Lane Contracting, LLC, to demolish the landmark at a cost of nearly $67,000.
Terrell Police will soon have hardened body armor, helmets and other items for officer's protection, thanks to a fund raising event held by the pastor of a local church earlier this month which raised nearly $24,000 toward the purchase. The city will match the funds raised to make the purchase. The money will be sufficient to purchase gear for all Terrell police officers.
