POTH -- U.S. 181 through the city may sport seasonal greetings for Christmas, following approval by the Poth City Council of a sign ordinance amendment during the June 17 regular council meeting.

The amendment will allow local businesses and city residents to construct and erect Christmas-card style greetings to display along the highway along the railroad property from Dilworth Plaza to the city limit sign. The city will provide electricity for floodlights to illuminate the signs at night. Guidelines will be drafted; once approved by the council, signup will be on a first-come, first-served basis for the spots available.

Also discussed and approved were updates to the UTSA Master Planning Proposal. The city and the Poth Economic Development Corp. are sharing the costs for the plan, which will include land-use study for future sites for water, sewer, potential residential areas, and their impact on the community.

Council members discussed the city’s 2013-14 operating budget in a workshop preceding the council meeting and during the meeting. Budgetary matters are pending certified property values from the Wilson County Appraisal District.

Police Chief Lowell Hull raised the issue of commercial vehicles parking in residential areas, blocking lines of sight near intersections and wear and tear to the shoulders of some roads by trucks. Hull cited a number of complaints by city residents regarding this matter. The council agreed to further investigation and possible future action on a parking ordinance.

Also addressed by the council was progress with seal-coating of city streets. Mayor Travis Pruski said the work has been delayed on certain roads; the work continues and will be completed in the near future.

Poth City Council June 17 regular meeting. In attendance: Mayor Travis Pruski; councilmen Eric Ramirez, Steve Martinez, Paul Martinez, and Jason Smolka; City Secretary Rose Huizar; Municipal Judge Hilda Tejada; Water Works Director Kenneth “Buck” Griffin; and Police Chief Lowell Hull.
