Bulletin Staff Report

Early voting in the May 10 local elections ends Tuesday.

Early voting for the City of Brownwood municipal election and the Brown County Water Improvement District is at the Coliseum Annex, 110 S. Greenleaf, where voting hours are 7 a.m. to 7 p.m for the final two days.

For the City of Brownwood, 744 people had voted as of Friday, and 540 had voted in the water district, Brown County Elections Administrator Suzy Young said.

Friday was the final day for Young’s office to receive a request for a mail-in ballot.

Voters who live in the City of Brownwood will find four propositions — but no races involving candidates — on their ballots. The first calls for an amendment to the city charter to change the police chief from an elective to an appointed, or hired, position.

The other three propositions ask for voters’ approval on a series of actions that would allow sales tax revenue already being collected to be used for a Camp Bowie parks project and relocation of the senior citizens facility.

No terms of elected municipal officials in Brownwood expire this year.

Residents of the Brown County Water Improvement District No. 1, which is roughly in the area of the cities of Brownwood and Early as the city limits stood in the early 20th century, will vote to elect board members to four-year terms. Incumbents Stuart Coleman, Jay Timmins and Pierre Osbourn, along with challenger Tommy Davis have filed.
