Operation Tequila Sunrise results in arrests

   Based on several complaints of a bar at 407 7th Street - commonly known as Shotz or Rodeo VIP - selling alcohol after hours, Bay City Police Department decided to form a special operation earlier this month.
   Under Cpl. Dan Shook, the special operation - dubbed by police as Operation Tequila Sunrise - would determine if the complaints were true and, if so, put a stop to the illegal actions. 
   Before the operation began, the Texas Alcoholic Beverage Commission (TABC) was contacted and it verified the bar did not have a permit. 
   Prior to the operation, TABC contacted the business owner to notify them that selling without a permit was illegal. 
   The operation’s first phase was gathering intelligence and verifying the sales of alcohol. Undercover officers went into the bar to determine if alcohol was being sold. Officers went inside the bar and verified alcoholic beverages were being sold.

"Van Vleck OKs stadium renovation price" by: Jessica Shepard

   Van Vleck ISD trustees unanimously approved a guaranteed maximum price bid (GMP) of $487,480 by Drymalla  Construction Company to execute Phase 2 of the stadium/practice field renovations at Van Vleck High School.
   The renovations are one part of the $88.2 million bond project package passed last November.
    The original scope of work was projected to cost $772,857.
   “That’s a savings of $285,377 to the district,” said Sophia Dusek, PBK architect project executive. “There’s no value engineering done on this bid at all.”
   PBK advertised for bidders via telephone, public notices and web-based bid processing sites and all bidders had to present a written proposal.
   “Did we get any local participation?” asked trustee Kevin Ward. “I really want to see as much local business as possible on this bond.”
