SWEENY WELCOMES NEW CITY MANAGER

12/09/2019

The City of Sweeny is proud to welcome Reese Cook as the new City Manager. Reese grew up in Sweeny and graduated from Sweeny High School in 2004. He attended and graduated with a Civil Engineering Degree from Lamar University in 2008. Upon graduation, he worked for a small company, Holloway Houston, Inc., as a Rigging Engineer until late 2012 when he transferred to the Phillips 66 Refinery in Old Ocean as an Engineer.

Cindy King, our beloved former City Manager, resigned earlier in 2019. Mrs. King served the City as a City Clerk before being promoted to the City Manager in 2010. We cannot thank her enough for her leadership and contributions. We will miss her tremendously.

“As I get settled in to the City Manager position,” Reese said, “my hope is to hear concerns and compliments of the residents and work towards improving what needs to be improved and continuing and building upon the great traditions that we already hold dear in our small town. I have an open-door policy and am interested and motivated to hear from all generations of residents on what we can all do to continue living, working and raising our families in ‘A City with Pride.’”

PREVENTIVE ULTRASOUND HEALTH SCRRENING

12/10/2019

The City of Sweeny will host, in partnership with Elite Medical Imaging, a Preventive Ultrasound Health Screening on Wednesday, February 19, 2020 at the Sweeny Community Center, located at 205 W. Ashley Wilson Road, Sweeny, TX 77480.

Ultrasound screenings are painless, non-invasive and contain no radiation. Eight preventive screenings will be offered:

      1. Carotid Artery
      2. Abdominal Aorta
      3. Thyroid
      4. Liver
      5. Spleen
      6. Gallbladder, and
      7. Both kidneys
      8. Both Kidneys

These screenings are not typically done at physician’s visits or at annual check-ups, nor will insurance companies pay for them, unless you are symptomatic. Screenings will be offered to you for $49 each or the full preventive package — (all 8 areas) for just $150.00!

Flex spending accounts may be used, and all other forms of payment are accepted the day of the screening. Our radiologist recommends these screenings be considered on an annual basis as a preventive measure. Oftentimes results can change from one year to the next based on age, stress factors and lifestyle.

Appointments are required and will be offered on a first come first serve basis.
