Nocona Council discusses property, okays drought plan review

Members of the Nocona City Council reviewed its drought contingency plan and discussed concerns about a dilapidated property with its owner and a neighbor during its Tuesday night meeting.
The city’s drought contingency plan requires review every five years. The council made no changes in the plan.
Councilors heard from Jeff Skinner who lives next door to 900 E. U.S. Highway 82, and Ginger Jones, who recently purchased the property.
City Secretary Revell Hardison said this property has been examined for the past few years following the death of its former owners and its lapse into back taxes and a property lien. The former owner passed away in 2016 and the property has remained vacant. Read the full story in the weekend Bowie News.
