DIBOLL, TEXAS… As the Texas Department of Transportation moves forward with its plan to construct a by-pass around the City of Diboll as part of the I-69 project, the City of Diboll is making plans to ensure the continuation of vital city services.
The City’s communication’s tower is one of the important services that will be impacted by the road construction. This tower, which supports communication between emergency organizations—Diboll Police, Fire, and Angelina County Sheriff’s Departments—is being relocated to an approximate 6-acre tract of land located near Georgia-Pacific’s Lumber and Particle Board mills in Diboll. Earlier this year Georgia-Pacific realized the City’s immediate need and offered to donate the land to accommodate the municipality’s communication’s tower.
“We want to be a good neighbor and support the city’s efforts to enhance its infrastructure and those services that are critical to keeping the public safe,” said Pat Aldred, GP Vice President/General Manager of Composite Panels. “The donation is significant to the City since it will not only save taxpayer money but help to provide life-saving services to the community – including GP families and employees.”
Diboll Mayor John McClain applauds Georgia-Pacific’s generous land donation and its continual financial and in-kind support within the community. “It’s great knowing that we have a strong business partner in our community who understands the importance of giving back,” said McClain.
