Mayor of Poth
February 22, 2012 | 2,101 views | Post a comment

To the Citizens of Poth:

This spring will be an exciting time for the city of Poth. We have several water and street projects that will be completed. The main line on F.M. 541 at the Catholic Church has been connected to the line that runs along Sunshine Street to help project water flow in that area. The line that runs down St. Mary’s Street, in return, will get replaced. The construction part of that street will occur in the next couple of weeks.

Also, we will shortly begin the construction in the Richland Heritage subdivision. We will be replacing most water service lines on Oaklawn, Bossier, Natchez, and Shenandoah streets. The streets were done at a huge cost savings by the city purchasing the materials ourselves. We were able to save enough money to add most of Richter Street into the project. The work will begin in just a few short weeks.

Also, the Poth Economic Development Corporation (PEDC) is working again with the UTSA Architecture Department. The students are coming up with a plan to build a new bathroom at the city park that will be Americans with Disabilities Act compliant. It will be placed halfway between the pavilion and the baseball fields on the walking trail. The estimated cost is $25,000 because we plan to use local contractors. The funding will be split between the city, the PEDC, and the Ride to Remember. We also are renovating the bathroom between the pavilion and the tennis courts. The budget cost for the makeover project is $3,000, which is in the park maintenance budget. We also found a great deal on some new basketball goals to replace the broken goals at the city basketball courts, also included in the budget.

The city and the school district have also started the New Year with a bang. We have worked out an agreement to split election costs. This will allow a savings of $6,000 to taxpayers. The city and the school are going to continually look for opportunities like this split cost. We are thankful to have a great partnership with the school district in building a better community.

I thank you for taking the time to read this and stay informed about the city.

God Bless.

Travis Pruski is the mayor of Poth.
