Mayor Teague has
plans for Alicia projects
The first term for the newly-elected mayor of Alicia has begun.
Bill Teague stated that he has mixed feelings about being elected.
"I am pleased to know that so many people have confidence in me," he said, but he knows there will be challenges ahead.
Teague plans to focus on the city's water and sewer systems. Alicia is currently in the process of trying to receive grant money, which, if received, will be used for repairs and maintenance of the systems.
Teague, a teacher at Twin Rivers, said that improving the water and sewer systems in Alicia could become a major challenge.
"The job has been easy for me up to this point," Teague said. "However, we're going to have to do something with the water system. If the grant money doesn't come through, then it will be a challenge. We're at the point to where it has to be done."
Some of Teague's other plans for the city are to get the water tower painted and construct a new city park, which is set to be open by the beginning of the summer.
The mayor and his wife, Deborah, have a daughter, Michelle. Teague currently serves as the pastor of Lone Oak Missionary Baptist Church. He also custom bails hay, trains horses and shoes horses.
Teague is a graduate of Mansfield High School, as well as Henderson State University where he received a bachelor's degree.
Teague is optimistic about his position as mayor.
"I am pleased to work with the residents of Alicia," he said.
