Nursery, antique shop coming to St. Hedwig
ST. HEDWIG -- Prior to the April 4 meeting of the St. Hedwig City Council, the city’s planning and zoning commission will hold a public hearing to discuss the requested rezoning of 3651 Kusmierz Road.
St. Hedwig Code Compliance Officer Kathy Palmer told the city council at its March 7 meeting that the property’s owner, Nick Vann, has requested that one acre of its classification be changed from “agricultural residential” to “commercial.” This, Palmer said, is because Vann plans to build a wholesale nursery center there that would cater to commercial customers. She described it as being similar to Cooper’s Garden Place south of Floresville.
Palmer also reported that a sign permit was approved for D.R. Barr to erect a sign for a collectibles and antique store to be located on F.M. 1518 across from St. Hedwig Feed. She said Barr plans to be open within the next six months and that he would have to obtain a certificate of occupancy from the city.
Also during the meeting, the council approved a $17,091 bid submitted by Tractor City in Floresville to purchase a John Deere tractor and attachments including a loader, shredder, and posthole digger. Mayor Pro Tem Dwayne Padalecki said the shredder will enable city workers to maintain the approximately 7-acre city park in a more efficient manner. The posthole digger, he said, could help save money on reinstalling road signs that often are knocked over.
In other business, the council discussed the upcoming road-improvement projects proposed for the eastern portion of Lupon Road, portions of Gable Road, and portions of Mergele Road. Councilman David Rakowitz said the project will include the resurfacing of approximately 5-1/2 miles of roadway, at an estimated cost of $50,000 to $60,000 per mile. Padalecki said the council plans to solicit bids in April and award a contract in May.
A separate bid package will be devised related to a quarter-mile section of Mergele Road that enters Wilson County.
Also discussed was the March 30 spring cleanup day with MD Systems, set for 9 a.m. to 1 p.m. in the city park. Hazardous items will not be accepted.
In attendance: St. Hedwig Mayor Pro Tem Dwayne Padalecki and councilmen Francisco Arevalo, David Rakowitz, Walter Wyrwich, and Susann Baker; City Secretary Barbara Pawelek, and Code Compliance Officer Kathy Palmer.
