Chairman's Message                                                            October 2012
Stephen Mason Wow!  What a great Taste of Cedar Hill & Business Expo we had last month.  What an excellent location, yes there were some opportunities with a new venue, but overall it was well attended and a great event.  Now on to the next fundraiser.  The Caddy Shack Open is scheduled for Nov 12 at Thorntree Country Club.  We are excited about shifting it later in the year, maybe the Texas heat will be almost gone.  It also falls on Veteran's Day.  Holiday for some and we think that is a great advantage.  Please join the planning committee, become a sponsor or register to play!  Remember, this is one of our three fundraisers for the year.  Let's finish 2012 financially strong.

Crime Control & Prevention District
The Crime Control and Prevention District is a citywide crime prevention initiative to fund police officers to keep Cedar Hill safe, with no new taxes.

From existing sales tax revenues, 1/8 of 1% will be reallocated from the Economic Development Corporation to fund this program.
It would provide revenue to fund four officers and a sergeant in a Police and Community Together (PACT) unit to focus primarily on
  • Promoting community, government and police partnerships, proactively solving problems and engaging residents and business owners to address causes of crime, fear of crime and other community issues.
  • Working directly with crime watch groups, other City departments, businesses, CHISD Police, community groups and citizens and providing information, crime prevention techniques and resolving community crime concerns.
  • Demonstrating how proactive policing helps prevent crimes and engages citizens in keeping the city safe.
Join us for an informative presentation by our very own
Police Chief, Steve Rhodes.  Watch email for registration!
