Fire Marshal to Host Forums Next Week

Below is a notice from the Fire Marshal’s office. We’d like to encourage people to attend, ask questions and learn about how we can work with the Fire Marshal.

The Public Nuisance Forum is being presented by County Fire Marshal, Shane Renberg, next week. Topics will include public nuisances, illegal dumping, sewage/septic complaints, inspections, illegal burning, and fires. 

The forum will be held on Tuesday, March 5th at 2 PM and again on Thursday March 7th at 9 AM in the Commissioner’s Court Room located in the Henderson County Annex Building at 125 N. Prairieville, Athens, TX. The forum will be followed by a question and answer period and you will be introduced to the deputies and office staff who handle your complaints.

This forum is open to the public as well as POA/HOA board members and we would like to see a large turnout. If you have a special topic of interest you would like to have addressed, please let us know. We want to hear from you and work together with you to make Henderson County a place you're proud to call home
