1D. Some things I have found are not all in our city limits but can and do sometimes
affect our city and or ETJ from the unincorporated areas.

2. Flood plain areas from east of CR 2930 at the large culvert to west of CR 2930 and
onwards to Hwy 198 north and Cedar Branch Park Road at HWY 198 culvert.

3. There are definitely flood plain and swift water rescues done at these above areas.

4. These flood plain roads are sometimes a hindrance to emergency vehicles such as
EMS, fire and rescue and sheriff and DPS officers.

5. Other flooding roads are CR 2530 from 198 to Double Bridge Road also some of these
roads do not drain rapidly enough or not completely and leave standing water for
mosquito breeding and stagnate water, which would then go into Cedar Creek Lake ours
and Tarrant County water supply

6D Dead trees on county roads in city limits sometimes in storms drop limbs that hinder
emergency vehicles.

7. businesses burning hazardous materials such as polyurethane foam which turns into
mustard gas while being burned, tires, insulation etc.

8. Illegal dumping of trash and debris on side of the roads that could lead to surface
water contamination.
9. The state of Texas has put off the widening and straightening of HWY 198 through
Payne Springs till 2010 to which a bond has already been paid for and property surveyed.

10. Fire hydrant at HWY 198 and Enchanted Oak Drive has not been replaced yet after
about 2 years byEast Cedar Creek water supply.

11. Lack of code enforcement for Henderson County, Sheriff Dept and constable offices.

12. The city has sought the cooperation and communication with the Payne Springs VFD
and Henderson Rural Fire District #2. Commissioners to no avail. “We are responsible
to no one”.

13. The VFD should have MSDS sheets on the hazardous chemicals in each of the
businesses in its area, and catastrophe plans need to be shaped with the city
administrators, councilman, people emergency mitigation coordinator, and emergency
coordinator of Henderson County.

14. The fire department has 55 gal drums of used oil and open pans that flood used oil
onto the ground when it rains.
14D This used oil contaminates ground surface water as well as the run off into the
streams and lake. The concrete pad, driveway at the rear of the building on the east side
is soaked with oil, and is covered with debris and trash and is a public nuisance, to
habitation of rats, mice, and other undesirable vermon and viruses and bacteria due also
to standing water.

16. The Den Bridge has plant has a census about every 2 years of public around plant in
their red area.

17. Entrance to Cherokill Hills subdv. And SH 198 culvert needs to be widened by state,
hazardous to all vehicles especially emergency vehicles.

18. The H.M.C. of Payne Springs City attended the HCRFD#2 commissioners mgt to
share info, to no avail. All requests for info were laughed and no effort on their part to
cooperate or communicate was made. Their attitude is they are responsible to no one and
aren’t responsible to any one per their fire chief, executive board president, and the fire
district @2 commissioners! Including the city of Payne Springs, the county, state or even
FEMA or the federal government.

19. All the gas well heads in the Payne Spring area are plugged and not in use as of this
date 7/30/03 per Jeff Munns of Denbridge and the Rail Road Commission. LWells
owner – Bill Ross Baytech 903-597-3741.

20. Underground gas lines are in use all over the area, in the city limits and out.

E1 The Texas Dept of Housing and Community Affairs no longer exists turned into the
Office of Rural Community Affairs, or ORCA at 1-800-544-2042. Al Lewis or Sam
Teesen Exec Director that governs rural fire districts and are soon to be emergency
services districts, Sept 1, 2003.

E The lack of the cooperation and communication of the fire district commissioners and
the Payne Springs volunteer fire dept has jeopardized the fulfillment of all the
information requested by all of the authoritative organizations requesting it. FEMA,
Homeland Security, ETCOG, SFASU, Forest Resources Institute and Gary Traylor &

The Payne Spring City has gone to the limit to try and resolve this attrosity to no avail
and are not accepting any responsibility for the lack of action of the Dist Commissioners
and/or the PSVFD

Their liability remains solely in their hands not the citizens of the Payne Springs area that
they volunteered to protect.

PS. This is some of info requested by these organizations from your fire dist
commissioners. The fire dept. exec. Board..

I phoned his office in Tyler 8/19/03 approx 3:30 pm. And according to my conversation
with Gary Traylor this afternoon the PSVFD and F Dist Comm. might hinder this city
and Enchanted Oaks City and the unincorporated area from receiving financial assistance
in the event of an emergency or catastrophe.

If there are some conscientious people out there that can volunteer some time to help
their fellow citizens, put your name in the hat to the county judge an county comm. To be
appointed to replace the present f. dist commissioners.
