Interim Azle Police Chief Darrell D. West was honored for 25 years of service to the city of Azle during the Jan. 20 city council meeting.

Recycle Blaze

A recycle truck emptied a bin at Azle Elementary Monday, Jan. 19 about 8:45 a.m., but with the sun in the driver’s eyes, the truck’s scoop clipped overhead electrical lines, shutting off power to the school and numerous homes, businesses, and churches.
