Hudson Oaks water safe for drinking

August 3, 2010 by Randy Keck

Because of the water outage in Weatherford, city residents are being asked to boil water for consumption until further notice. Hudson Oaks, however, has determined that its water is safe to drink, although some water restrictions remain in effect.

City Administrator Sheri Campbell-Husband issued the following statement Tuesday afternoon, Aug. 3:

Thanks to Hudson Oaks water customers’ compliance with Stage 3 restrictions the City’s water system has stabilized without having to draw surface water from Weatherford. The City of Hudson Oaks wants its water customers to know that Hudson Oaks water is safe to use for all domestic purposes, including consumption, without boiling the water.

Area mayors follow Deen's lead

August 2, 2010 by Dominic Genetti

Dominic Genetti/The Community News: Hudson Oaks Mayor Pat Deen was the first mayor to back out of the united cities proposal made by Mayor Ken Hawkins of Willow Park. The plan calls for the uniting of the six cities of East Parker County; Aledo, Hudson Oaks, the Annettas and Willow Park.
Six days after Willow Park Mayor Ken Hawkins officially proposed to the public that the six cities of East Parker County merge and become one, three area mayors have confirmed that they want their cities removed from discussions.

City declares water emergency

August 2, 2010 by Randy Keck

The City of Hudson Oaks has declared a water emergency effective immediately. Text of the notice sent from the city is as follows:

Due to a water main break at the Weatherford Lake Water Treatment Facility, the City of Hudson Oaks has declared a water emergency and imposed Stage 3 water restrictions, effective immediately.

Stage 3 of the City’s Water Conservation and Drought Contingency Plan is triggered when water demand for the delivery system exceeds delivery capacity because delivery capacity is inadequate, or when the water supply system is unable to delivery water due to the failure or damage of major water system components. The main break at the Weatherford facility falls into both categories.

Mayors back out of proposal

July 23, 2010 by Dominic Genetti

In an e-mail to Willow Park Mayor Ken Hawkins, the mayors of the cities of East Parker County and the media, Hudson Oaks Mayor Pat Deen is officially backing his city out of any discussions to merge Aledo, Hudson Oaks, Willow Park and the Annettas.

"The primary reason is the concern for the impact of property taxes, when we already have exceptional services provided to our residents without the need for property taxes," Deen said in his e-mail.

Following the Aledo City Council meeting Thursday night, Aledo Mayor Kit Marshall said she will not partake in any regional meetings that involve the merging of the six cities.

Hawkins said he will still advocate and lobby for his proposal.
