The Texas State University Student Government passed a new legislation yesterday, which approved the extension of the time for shuttle buses on campus to run later on Fridays. The Student Government will meet with transportation services this Friday to see which hours are best financially.
Several vehicle burglaries have been reported to the University Police Department within the past week. The robber has not yet been identified. Tower Garage, Elliot Hall and areas around central campus have been targeted. Police Detective Rolando Belmares recommends students keep their vehicles locked and to not leave valuables in plain sight.
The latest tests conducted by the City of San Marcos show there is no detectable lead in the water surrounding the Hays County Government Center. Previous samples were taken at the beginning of September and the results were above Environmental Protection Agency standards. Tests will continue to determine why lead was initially present in the water and to make sure conditions meet EPA standards.
