Nacogdoches Council plans to discuss drought advertising
Nacogdoches, Texas — Nacogdoches City Council members on Tuesday will discuss allowing city officials to spend $15,000 on advertising and marketing to help educate the public about the seriousness of the drought and the need for water conservation.
"Typically, we don't have advertising money but we are asking to put out some marketing to see if we can get people con conserve water through this drought," Nacogdoches City Manager Jim Jeffers said.
Nacogdoches City Engineer Steve Bartlett will also give council members an update on the water conservation efforts.
Since enacting Stage 1 of it's drought contingency plan, asking people to voluntarily decrease water usage, city officials said water usage has actually increased.
