To the Citizens of Poth:

We have finished up our budget for the 2013-14 year. We are proud to announce that for the eighth year out of the past nine years, we will be able to lower your tax rate. The rate will drop from 26.10 cents to 25.30 cents. We work very hard to use your money as wisely as possible.

We have had an increase in sales-tax revenue from our growing local economy. We will still be able to continue our road-improvement plans and our park-improvement plans. Please remember to shop locally and we will try to make next year the ninth year of lower taxes.

We are also keeping the same rates for sewer, refuse, and the base water rates. We will only be going up on the usage over the 3,000-gallon base rate. The increase will be $1 for every 1,000 gallons. This will mostly affect those who water their yards. Even with the increase, we are still 25 percent below the state average. The increase in revenues will be put into our saving funds for the drilling of the new water well. This fall we will be adding a new 1.5 million gallon water storage tank and a new aerator for the water treatment plant. This will help to improve the temperature of the water next summer.

Due to the long hot summer, we are also asking everyone to join us in our voluntary water restrictions. We are asking for odd-numbered homes to water on Saturday and Wednesday, even-numbered homes on Sunday and Thursday from 8 p.m. to 10 a.m. This is only voluntary; please do what you can to help preserve our water resources.

Please remember to join us for our sixth annual Ride to Remember Saturday, Sept. 7. We have a 5-K run and bicycle rides of 12, 22, 44, and 66 miles. Sign up online at www.cityofpoth.org or at Poth City Hall. Barbecue plates will also be sold to the public. All proceeds go to parks improvements, like the bathroom, and to the Alzheimer’s Association San Antonio Chapter.

Thank you and God Bless.

Travis Pruski is the mayor of Poth.
