Because Life is Better at the Lake

Henderson County Animal Shelter New Board Members


My name is Nicole Sprabary and I am a mom, first and foremost. I raise my children in the Cedar Creek Lake community and feel like a local. I am a freelance writer and blogger, wanting to speak truth and greatness into our community as a whole. I hope to put forth great information to members of our community both locals and weekenders as well as everyone in between.

The Henderson County Commissioners court holds weekly meetings on Tuesday mornings to discuss county business.

Mark Brown, Executive Director of 911 in Henderson County, presented to the Commissioners court, information for upgrades to the computer system. These upgrades are due to Microsoft not supporting the system currently used after 2019 and funds will need to be allocated to facilitate these upgrades in the future.

The Henderson County Animal Shelter now has a new board to oversee its caretaking.

Five members were chosen and these citizens will be responsible for overseeing one of the two animal shelters in the Cedar Creek Lake area that help house local displaced, abandoned, seized or otherwise needing adopted animals.

Norma Lambert with the Henderson County Humane Society
Amy Lambert, Shelter Representative
Dr. John Morton - Athens, Veterinarian
Lieutenant Jason McIntyre, APD - City of Athens Representative
Michael Bynum, Treasurer, County Representative

Henderson County residents will also be paying a different pay schedule for trash disposal or dump fees. The new rates will be as follows:
$12 per cubic yard

If anyone is interested in attending, meetings are held in the Commissioners court, which is located in the Courthouse annex off the square in Athens, Texas. They are on Tuesday mornings at 9am.
