Waco is planning on expanding our holiday flag displays and to do so we need additional flag poles. During Christmas 2015 we displayed 25 Holiday flags that were donated by the Waco Stop and Shop and they looked great. Over the next year we are planning on adding to that number. We are working toward a purchase of 40 American Flags to be displayed on Memorial Day, July 4th, Flag Day and Veterans Day and we need additional poles to make this happen. If anyone has poles they are not using please contact us. We would like to bring the number of poles we have to at least 50. Thank you from Waco. jeb

The Town of Waco Board of Aldermen and I are reaching out to all property owners in Waco and reaffirming our determination to continue our focus on improving the overall appearance of Waco. Over the past two years we have addressed the overgrowth on our side streets, we have continued to work clearing the curbing and have worked to keep the sidewalks edged. We repainted all the fire hydrants in Town last year and we are working to repair or replace all missing or damaged street signs this summer. We are also continuing our efforts on clearing and cleaning our ditch and drainage lines. This year's focus is related to the Town of Waco Ordinance Section 3.5-42 "Responsibility of Owners and Occupants" as it relates to Yard Waste, Lawn Care and Maintenance and "Care of Premises". We wanted to call this to everyone's attention so that we are all on the same page and have the same understanding of the expectations set forth by this ordinance established in 2001.


As part of this focus we are planning a "Clean Up Waco Day" on Saturday May 5th. Please join us at 9:00 am at the Community Building and let's spend a few hours with our neighbors walking the streets of Waco. Come join us on the 5th and let's work together to make a difference. We are stronger when we work together. jeb

This page will highlight what's happening in Waco and the surrounding community.

In May 2015 a project was launched to repair and restore a group of trophies that represent athletic teams from the old Waco School. The trophy case and all restoration was paid for by donations from Waco School alumni. The trophies and trophy case are proudly displayed in the Waco Town Hall. We want to thank everyone who felt our passion and helped to bring these historic trophies back to life. They represent years of Waco Wildcat Pride. jeb

This is the proposed updated seal for the Town of Waco that has been presented by local graphic designer Jimmy Carpenter to the board for their consideration. The seal incorporates all the same visual aspects from the current seal with fresh and more colorful aesthetics. The proposed change of the town's seal comes from a desire to improve and update the town's image, and to create a specific new more colorful design that represents Waco and it's citizens.  My vision is that the seal becomes the visual representation of our great town and one that we see on vehicle window seals, bumper stickers and on tee shirts. I believe those of us from Waco and people with ties to Waco would be proud to display this beautiful image on our cars.   I also believe sales would be brisk for "I love Waco" tee shirts with this seal on it. We want to hear from you on this idea. Please let us know what you think.  jeb
