San Saba sweeps Keep America Beautiful Conference

All the hard work of San Saba volunteers, city employees and community organizations and leaders brought our town national attention at the recent Keep America Beautiful conference in Baltimore.

Out of 600 affiliates in the Keep America Beautiful program, San Saba’s community involvement and environmental programs received top scores for three years in a row for beautification, litter prevention and solid waste management. These high scores netted San Saba a Sustained Excellence Award, one of only seven given by the national organization at the conference.

In addition, by receiving the highest score of 200 affiliates with a Population Under 30,000, San Saba was also bestowed the top Affiliate Award for our population category. The awesome people in San Saba made these two awards possible!

Text-To-9-1-1 services available in San Saba County

Central Texas Council of Governments (CTCOG) Regional 9-1-1 Program is pleased to announce the availability of Text-to-9-1-1 service in our entire region, including San Saba County.

Text-to-9-1-1 is a service that allows citizens to send a text message directly to 9-1-1 for assistance in the event they are unable to make a voice call.

Simply send a text as you would normally. In the recipient field, enter 911, then compose the message and push send.

Once your text is sent, the 9-1-1 system will send an automated message asking the individual texting for the address of the emergency.

This starts the text session between 9-1-1 and the individual needing emergency help.

It is important to remember that Text-to-9-1-1 services should only be used in an emergency situation, when someone is unable to speak.
