Early morning concrete pouring approved

The Azle City Council granted a handful of variances to three construction sites throughout the city at its Aug. 1 meeting.

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.
