POTH -- Citizens and businesses of Poth will have the opportunity to send Christmas greetings to travelers on U.S. 181 this holiday season after the Poth Economic Development Corp. (PEDC) finalized its 2013 Christmas Card Display Project. The approval was among decisions made during the regular Aug. 5 Poth EDC meeting.
Twenty slots will be made available for the inaugural event, which will entail submitting an application for a spot on or before Nov. 1. A drawing of the proposed design is due at the time of application. The designs will be submitted to City Hall and approved by the PEDC. The cards will be a minimum of one 4-foot by 8-foot piece of plywood and no larger than the equivalent of two pieces of 4-foot by 8-foot plywood.
The city of Poth will provide the electrical power to light the cards. There is no fee for placement of the cards. For full details, call City Secretary Rose Huizar at 830-484-2111 or visit www.cityofpoth.org.
Also addressed during the meeting was PEDC approval of an expenditure to the University of Texas at San Antonio for the city of Poth and the Poth Independent School District’s joint venture in collecting and projecting demographic and economic information regarding the anticipated growth and needs of the city. Also presented was an update on the new park restrooms, followed by discussion of the 2013-14 operating budget.
The Poth EDC projects a conservative 8-percent increase in its revenue from 2013. Members anticipate pursuing proposed capital projects, such as the purchase
of additional utility poles with electric meter loops and Christmas trees for the city limit in the north, as well as a real estate savings fund for the future development of an industrial park, and the publication of a city brochure.
In attendance: President Chrystal Eckel and members Marcelo Laijas, Gene Maeckel, and Richard Harris.
