La Salle County unveiled its official website this week in an effort to make information more available for local residents. The new site went live on Thursday, Dec. 6th.
Above the main image on the homepage, the new site features a list of Elected Offices and County Departments for residents to obtain more specific information. Soon, the site will allow citizens to have up-to-date information on getting a marriage license, registering vehicles and finding polling locations and paying county fees online.
As work continues on the new site, county offices and departments will identify the services they provide.It will also be much easier for residents to stay informed of county meetings. On the Commissioner’s Court page there is list of upcoming meetings with links to agendas. Upcoming Meeting and Agenda postings may be the most visited feature of the site.
By staying informed, citizens can be more involved with input into the county government process and become more knowledgeable on the many other things that happen at the county level. Keeping people aware of what’s happening in La Salle County is the primary goal.
Relocation of offices planned for beginning of year
County officials announced that the La Salle County Courthouse will once again be home to a majority of County Offices after four years of dispersed locations throughout Cotulla. County Judge Joel Rodriguez, Jr. announced today that most of the final stages during the long restoration period are nearing completion. “It’s a beautiful building,” said Rodriguez. “I am very pleased with the results and I believe the citizens of La Salle County will be pleased as well. Everyone involved did an excellent job and I’m very excited to be moving back to the historic location in the ‘brand-new’ old building.”
The current facility built in 1931 and designed by architect Henry T. Phelps, had been in continuous use until the fall of 2008 when the Commissioner’s Court agreed to move some of the county offices to the Welhausen Building and distribute some offices throughout the community.
The La Salle County Sheriff's Office regrets to announce that it has lost one of its deputies. La Salle County Sheriff's Deputy Aaron Luevano (28) of Uvalde, TX lost his life at the scene of a head on collision on FM 117 within Frio County 9 miles west of Dilley, Texas during the early morning hours of December 12, 2012. Deputy Luevano was on his way home to Uvalde after completing his shift as a patrol deputy.
The Texas Department of Public Safety is investigating the cause of the crash. At the time of the crash, Matthew Morrison a white male, approximately 20 years of age, was eastbound on FM HWY 117 west of Dilley, Texas. For still unknown reasons, Morrison’s vehicle collided head on with Luevano’s vehicle in the westbound lane on FM 117.
