Last Saturday, four Liberty Police Officers conducted a saturation patrol targeting intoxicated drivers. During the five hour period officers had seven warnings, four traffic citations, one drug arrest, two felony driving while revoked arrests, and two felony DWI arrests. Increased staffing to provide these patrols for intoxicated drivers comes from grant funding through the Missouri Department of Transportation Highway Safety Division. Some recent DWI arrests have resulted in the Police Department pursuing felony charges for persistent DWI offenders, one with 6 prior DWI arrests and another with 12 prior DWI arrests.

The Nashua Water Tower is getting some TLC! The City of Liberty’s Utilities Department works throughout the year to repair and strengthen the distribution system that carries water from the water treatment plant, to the City’s two water towers and then on to your home or business. Today, preparations began for one of the department’s most visible assets to get a fresh coat of paint. After letting natural usage drain much of the water from the tower, a crew began releasing the remaining water. Tomorrow a tent will go up to contain the cleaning process to remove old paint. The whole cleaning and painting process takes about 30 days.
