ST. HEDWIG -- Increasing vehicular traffic and weather conditions that sometimes vary by the minute are some of the reasons why road repair is a never-ending challenge for South Texas’ governmental entities. The situation is no different for the city of St. Hedwig. Mayor Mary Jo Dylla said during the Aug. 2 St. Hedwig City Council meeting that the small city is responsible for maintaining more than 30 miles of roadway.
The council has been working to rank these roads to determine which ones are in the most urgent need of repair or replacement. While councilmen Francisco Arevalo and David Rakowitz developed a preliminary list, the entire council voted unanimously to hire an engineer to inspect and recommend the best course of action for:
•East Gable Road
•North Gable Road
•East Lupon Road “to the right of the T intersection.”
Also related to roads, Councilman Dwayne Padalecki informed the council that stolen street signs continue to be a problem throughout the city.
“We’re missing many, just about every one of them,” he said.
Dylla said the city must utilize its streets-repair contractor, Texas Road Repair, to replace damaged or stolen street signs. Even after providing the sign, the city must still pay $80 per sign for labor. She urged anyone who witnesses someone deliberately removing a street sign to report them immediately to the city or to the Bexar County Sheriff’s Office.
Padalecki suggested that all new signposts should be placed closer to fence lines so that they are less likely to be run over by vehicles.
In other business, the council has set Thursday, Sept. 6, as the date of its budget and tax-rate hearings. Following the hearings, which begin at 7 p.m., the council will hold its regular meeting, which will include action on the budget and tax rates.
For the sixth consecutive year, the council is proposing an ad valorem rate of 47.9895 cents per $100 of assessed property value. Dylla said after the meeting that the rate includes 35.0975 cents for maintenance and operation and 12.892 cents for debt service, despite the Bexar County Appraisal District’s recommendation that the city increase its property-tax rate.
The rate will support a proposed fiscal year 2013 budget of $586,950, which is approximately 2.43 percent higher than the current budget of $573,009.
