Budget workshops usually do not get under way until the summer. But two organizations already made their 2013 requests known to the Wilson County Commissioners Court at its May 14 meeting. The commissioners took no action on the requests, but will consider and act upon them at a future meeting.

Representatives of the RSVP America Reads program -- which the county has helped fund since the 1980s -- is asking for $6,800 to help defray the costs of a part-time administrative assistant. The program usually gets $1,000 per year from the county.

Representatives of the Alamo Area Council of Governments (AACOG) are requesting $10,000 from each of the counties in its region. The funds will be used to fund AACOG’s Alamo Regional Transit program.

Also during the meeting, the commissioners discussed adding two projects to the county’s regional mitigation action plan. The first is the improvement of the drainage structure on Bentwood Drive north of Floresville, where Pct. 2 Commissioner Paul Pfeil said a bridge near the street’s intersection with U.S. 181 is deteriorating.

“There are 10, 42-inch culvert pipes [under the bridge] that are all rusted through,” he said. “The bridge is hollow between the pipes.”

The second addition is C.R. 202 E. near the Karnes County line, where Wilson County Emergency Management Agency Coordinator LeAnn Hosek said ongoing erosion caused by the nearby Marcelina Creek could compromise the roadway’s structural integrity.

Hosek said the action of adding the projects to the plan allows the county to include the projects in future grant applications. It was unrelated to the flooding that resulted from a storm event May 10.

In other action, the commissioners:

•Met in closed session with County Attorney Russell Wilson to discuss an injury claim by Carolyn Orth, who was the victim of a carjacking that occurred March 3 after an inmate escaped from the Wilson County Jail.

•Voted to have extended hours -- 8 a.m. to 8 p.m. -- for early voting May 24, at both the La Vernia City Hall and Wilson County Courthouse Annex No. 3 in Floresville.

Here is an idea, fund the Sheriff's Office so we can have more deputies out on the streets, especially here in Stockdale and La Vernia. We need to continue cleaning up these towns. Floresville has a pretty good handle on where ... More ›
