Early morning concrete pouring approved
BY CHRISTINA DERR
The Azle City Council granted a handful of variances to three construction sites throughout the city at its Aug. 1 meeting.
Early construction starts
The construction site of the new Azle Elementary School campus on Lakeview Drive was granted two of the exceptions.
The first – also given to the construction site of the future Walnut Creek Elementary School – allows concrete work to begin at the locations at 4 a.m. two days a week.
Citing the summer heat and limited availability of concrete trucks, the general contractor of the two schools, Buford-Thompson Company, asked the council to grant them a permit to begin pouring concrete at 4 a.m., two hours earlier than the normally allowed start time of 6 a.m.
