DAYTON — Dayton Rotary had a full house this past week as they welcomed County Judge Jay Knight.

Rotarian Brooks Hiller introduced the judge, as it was his week for the Rotary program. The Dayton Club was given an update on several different ongoing projects in and around Liberty County.

Knight, who is on the Houston-Galveston Area Council Board of Directors, serves on three different committees within the HGAC- Finance & Budget, Audit, and Water Resources Committees. He discussed with the Rotarians the importance of having a Liberty County representative ‘at the table’ at HGAC and that he was proud to represent LC.

While serving as County Judge, Liberty County has received close to $125M in grants for various projects throughout the years and/ or current projects. Judge Knight updated the status of the US Highway 90 and Texas 146 overpass.

“They are hoping to get started on the overpass this fall and their timeline will be 18-24 months for completion,” Knight said.

The judge reminded everyone that the traffi c would be a challenge during the construction phase of the overpass.

He then gave the Rotarians an update on planning and getting a countywide drainage plan.

At the end of the program, the Rotary members asked various questions, including some of his other ‘duties’ as the County Judge.

One interesting fact is that he has officiated over 700 weddings with about 400 of those performed in Spanish. At the conclusion of his informative presentation, President Ann Maria Mitchell thanked Judge Knight and led the Rotarians in the 4-Way Test.
