Eagle Ford: Rice appointed fire marshal
STOCKDALE -- It was business as usual for the Stockdale City Council, when the members met Jan. 8 for their first meeting of the new year.
According to Stockdale City Secretary Thania Santos after the meeting, Stockdale Interim Fire Chief David Rice was appointed to fill the vacancy of Stockdale Fire Marshal. Curt Fowler was last reappointed to that position in February 2012, but has since resigned.
In other action, Santos said the next city election is set for Saturday, May 11, with three seats on the city council up for voter action. These include mayor and Places 1 and 2, currently held by Johnny Stahl, Sherry D. Lambeck, and Saul Bosquez, respectively. The filing period for this election begins Wednesday, Jan. 30, and closes Friday, March 1, at 5 p.m.
The council also approved a special-use permit for Ritter Construction Co. This is in reference to a request by Ritter Construction, which occupies 2.9 acres of land located at 250 North Eighth St., on acreage formerly owned by Birdsong Peanuts; the permit grants a variance to allow RVs in an industrial zone. The RV on this site is used as living quarters for security reasons, since the city does not have a police department. A public hearing was held Dec. 11; no comments were received.
In other business related to the Birdsong property, the council rejected two bids for the sale and development of an 0.85-acre tract of land, that comprised part of Birdsong Peanuts. Santos said the council rejected the bids, stating the proposals were not advantageous to the city of Stockdale. The council elected not to invite further bids and instead will retain the property.
Jan. 8 meeting
In attendance: Mayor Johnny Stahl, councilmen Sherry D. Lambeck, Scott Soden, Saul Bosquez, and Roger Armstrong, City Manager Banks Akin, and City Secretary Thania Santos.
