STOCKDALE -- The Stockdale City Council July 2 gave its seal of approval to advance a $130,000 loan to the Stockdale Economic Development Corp.

Also related to the industrial park, Stockdale City Manager Banks Akin updated the council on the status of the road construction of Wheeler and Guerra streets and the city’s water plant project.
