        Count your blessings HH. for more than a decade while holding office Belton Texas mayor was fired, terminated from his banking job and refused to tell the voters why. The pro tem mayor filed for bankruptcy and another council member familiar with bankruptcy, but they won't talk about it. Bankruptcy falls on the consumers and cause high interest rates in loans - the people who were reckless and poor managers of finances are aloud to run and make financial decisions for the people of
        Belton Texas

        "In 2012, the Bell County Tax Appraisal District sued Aycock’s construction company for unpaid property taxes. According to Herald archives, the district sought $8,644 in unpaid 2010 ad valorum taxes on four tracts of land owned by Aycock Construction Inc."

        Unpaid 2010 ad valorum taxes...2010...here it is 2013.


        Wow...our mayor can't run his business properly, but can at a later date run for office again...Hmm. As a resident of HH...it leaves me to wonder if Aycock would be a good choice for mayor for the future of HH.

        Sounds like the Mayor position is going to be held for him.
