Happy Birthday Kingsbury!

May 19, 2015

Today, May 19th, 2015, is the birthday of the newest city in Texas.  On this day, Kingsbury received the Order from the Guadalupe County Commissioners Court to declare it a Type-C Municipality.  The Court approved the canvass of the incorporation election, issued the Order for a municipality, and set the date for election of city officials - all by unanimous votes.

 

 

When it came to discussing the Order, I was allowed to get up and say a few words about Kingsbury, the people of our great community, and the efforts of the Court, the KIC, and our citizenry to get to this phase in the development of a whole, independent Kingsbury.

 

The vote was then taken and the Order passed. We couldn't help ourselves and the KIC members present started an applause that grew to having everyone in the room applauding for Kingsbury!  The Court then allowed us the opportunity to shake their hands and take some photos commemorating this historic moment.
