FLORESVILLE -- The hard work of volunteers working together has revitalized a small community in eastern Wilson County. With more than 2,600 donated hours, volunteers laid more than 4 miles of pipeline last year in Pandora, allowing connection to the Sunko Water Supply Corp. in Stockdale. During the March 26 Wilson County Commissioners Court meeting, Wilson County Pct. 4 Commissioner Larry Wiley praised this volunteerism.

Wiley said a public meeting was held March 19, finalizing the Pandora public water system project.

An Office of Rural Community Affairs grant allowed citizen involvement in lieu of a cash match, to install lines for 50 water meters to be added to the Sunko Water Supply Corp. Wiley said Judy Childress and Frances Hastings organized this project. They were joined by Pct. 1 Commissioner Albert Gamez Jr., Larry Childress, Joe Cotter, Mr. and Mrs. Jimmy Luna, and Mr. and Mrs. Kenneth Martinez, Wiley said.

Wiley commented that this project has revitalized the area already, with as many as five people moving back to the community, since the waterlines were installed.

In recognition of this achievement, a barbecue lunch will be held Saturday, April 14, from 11:30 a.m. to 2 p.m. at the Pandora Baptist Fellowship, located near the intersection of U.S. 87 and F.M. 1107.

This was just one of two public recognitions taking place during the meeting.

The commissioners also designated May 12, 2012, as the official 100th anniversary of the SPJST Lodge No. 107, having been established May 12, 1912. Bob Bayer, representing the local lodge, said a celebration will be held Sunday, April 22, to celebrate this milestone. The lodge, built in 1930, is located at 1156 F.M 1303, near Floresville.

In other business, the commissioners:

•Approved a motion to accept a petition from attorney Gary Shank to vacate and discontinue a portion of C.R. 466, off U.S. 87 in Stockdale. The road discussed is located behind the All Dolled Up Beauty Shop; it is not located in the Stockdale city limits.

•Approved to vacate and discontinue portions of Second and 14th streets in Sutherland Springs.

•Approved an agreement between Bickerstaff Heath Delgado Acosta LLP and the county for no charge for legal services.

•Approved proclamations designating April as Child Abuse Prevention Month and National Sexual Assault Awareness and Prevention Month.

The commissioners also held two workshops:

•Amending rules and fees for driveway permits, and

•Adopting rules for recreational-vehicle parks, condos, “man camps,” and other multi-family housing units.

In attendance: Wilson County Judge Marvin Quinney, commissioners Albert Gamez Jr. (Pct. 1), Paul Pfeil (Pct. 2), Ricky Morales (Pct. 3), and Larry Wiley (Pct. 4), and county attorney Russell Wilson.
