We are continuing to work on the street, water, and sewer projects for the city. The Richland Heritage subdivision project is almost complete. Originally, we were only going to be able to work on Oak Lawn, Shenandoah, Bossier, and Richter (and seal coating Natchez and Klecka). We were lucky enough to add Live Oak, Mesquite, and now Mosspoint to that project with strict budgeting and using a good local contractor. Now city engineer Dean Bayer has almost completed the Voges Subdivision Revitalization Plans. He has done an amazing job and has saved the city a lot of money in the engineering portion of the project. We plan to go out for bids in August, with the project getting under way in late fall. We will keep you up-to-date in the upcoming months.

When this project is completed, we will have replaced 86 percent of the water, sewer, and streets in the city in just under nine years (see map). We sat down with an engineering company eight years ago to start the planning for the rejuvenation of the entire city infrastructure. When we were done planning, they told us it would take 20 years to complete the project. We should be complete in about 12 years.

I personally want to thank the city employees, city engineer, former Mayor Eckel, and the councils over the past eight years for making this happen. We were able to do this while lowering your tax rate seven of those eight years (keeping the same rate the remaining years).

We have also adopted a yearly funding project for seal coating all repaired streets to keep them in the best shape possible going forward. I am so proud of everything we have done, but we are not done yet. We are in preparation to finish the remaining streets over the next couple of years.

We are happy to announce the fifth annual Ride to Remember coming up Saturday, Sept. 8. It will include four bike levels (44, 22, 12, and 6 miles), and a 5K Run/Walk.

The past four years we have raised more than $50,000 and drawn almost 1,000 riders and runners. The profits have gone to support the Alzheimer’s Association of San Antonio and the City Park Funds. All riders, runners, and walkers will receive a dry-fit shirt and a barbecue lunch.

If you would like to sign up or just purchase a barbecue plate, visit www.cityofpoth.org or visit City Hall.

Do not forget about the summer movies series, featuring “The Vow” Friday, July 27, and “Cowboys and Aliens” Friday, Aug. 10. All movies start shortly after dark. Take blankets or lawn chairs. You are also invited to take snacks and beverages. We are planning for a fall movie schedule. Visit the city website to vote for your movie choices and dates at www.cityofpoth.org.

Always remember to shop locally. Thank you and God bless.

Travis Pruski is the mayor of Poth.

How about keeping the minutes of the council currently posted on the website. Also are all ordinances equally enforced? I know you are all busy with the movies.
