Ball fields draw crowds from both sides of the fence

POTH -- The city of Poth has entered into an interlocal agreement with the Poth Independent School District (ISD) to share responsibility for ball fields in the city park, following lengthy discussion during the Feb. 11 Poth City Council meeting.

The agreement outlining the responsibility for baseball and softball fields drew responses from both supporters and opponents and spawned more than an hour of debate during the meeting. The agreement outlines the negotiated terms of usage of the baseball and softball fields within the city park and the responsibilities of the parties involved.

According to the terms of the agreement, the school district will maintain the grounds of the A and B fields and the bleachers and dugouts around them; this responsibility will not include the C and D fields. In return, Poth ISD will retain priority status for scheduling usage and practices during the varsity baseball and softball season.

The city will maintain the areas outside the fields, including the restrooms and concession stand.

Opposition to this agreement stems from concerns that usage between the two entities will be disproportionate, with the school having total control over the fields. Requests were made by some in attendance to table the issue, to allow the public more time to voice concerns.

At the end of the discussion, however, the council voted to approve the interlocal agreement, with two amendments made to the maintenance checklist and the agreement itself. The measure passed, with Councilman Paul Martinez casting the lone opposing vote.

The crowd witnessing the discussion about the ball fields also witnessed new Poth police Chief Lowell Hull take the oath of office. The council approved him as the new chief in January, following a search after former Chief Lambert Jendrzey’s recent retirement. Hull will lead a department of three officers and one K-9, the department’s most recent addition.

The council also addressed a joint park improvement project between the city and the Poth Economic Development Corp. (PEDC), with the council tasked with approval for construction of a new restroom facility in the park. The city approved matching the amount designated by the PEDC, which has designated $20,000 of its funds toward the project, which also received council approval.

In other matters, the council approved repairs to Voges Street as part of an ongoing streets and utilities project. Two courses of chip-seal will be applied following utilities work. The entire project will be accomplished for approximately $175,000, as the city will purchase the supplies. Due to cost savings, the city has sufficient funds to repair four more streets in this project, anticipated to be complete by spring 2014.

In attendance: Councilmen Darren Dylla, Linda Criado, Steve Martinez,

and Paul Martinez; Mayor Travis Pruski.

Were you at the meeting to point out the alleged illegal activity? If not, maybe you should have been. People have become way too apathetic when it comes to keeping a watchful eye over their elected officials.
