Wheeler Street nears completion

STOCKDALE -- After almost four years in the making, Wheeler Street is nearly complete. The road begins at S.H. 123 and proceeds west into the Stockdale Industrial Park, located off U.S. 87.

Stop signs will be placed at North Eighth, North Sixth, and North Fourth streets, due to the construction of Wheeler Street. Stop signs also will be posted at the intersection of St. Mary’s, Guerra, and West Wheeler streets. The posted speed limit for Wheeler Street will be 25 mph.

Stockdale City Council members heard an update from City Manager Banks Akin during the Sept. 3 regular council meeting on the progress of Newman & Keng Paving Co. of Giddings, the contractor of this project. Funding for the two-course chip seal and 1.5-inch hot pavement of Wheeler Street came from a U.S. Department of Agriculture Rural Development loan.

As Wheeler Street nears completion, Akin invited council input on other roads in Stockdale to be addressed. Suggestions for the 2013-14 fiscal year are Andrada Street, the street near the Baptist church, and the street that parallels the Stockdale City Cemetery. Sixth and Fourth streets also are being considered. Akin will ask for assistance from the local county commissioner for the use of paving equipment.

When Councilman Becky Adams suggested the street next to Lowe’s Super S, Akin said this street requires curbing and has drainage issues that must be addressed. And the funding necessary to improve the street may exceed the budgeted amount for annual street improvements, he said.

In addition to infrastructure, the council discussed two contracts.

The council first addressed verbiage in an August 1999 interlocal agreement between the city and Wilson County. This agreement, regarding the regulation of food service establishments and retail food stores within the city, needs to be updated. The annual fees levied by the Wilson County Health & Public Safety Office are divided, with the county receiving 80 percent and the city, 20 percent.

Stockdale Mayor Ray Wolff said the ordinance needs updating to include the addition of a city regulatory clause and the city magistrate.

The second contract involved the city’s Distribution Integrity Management Program and Distribution Facility Replacement Plan contract. Akin was advised to seek legal counsel from the city’s attorney regarding the termination clause, travel expenses, and personal liability within the contract.

The council members also held a lengthy discussion regarding the number of paid holidays for city employees, and the council voted to continue with its current 13 days. The paid holidays discussion also included reference to the city’s polling location. Because City Hall is closed for polling, staff receive paid holidays for elections. The relocation of the polling place from City Hall to the Sarah Bain Chandler Public Library was discussed as an alternative. Use of the library must receive certification from the Justice Department.

The council also approved for Akin to seek bids for the replacement of the city’s dump truck.

In attendance: Mayor Ray Wolff; councilmen Scott Soden, Saul Bosquez, Becky Adams, and Roger Armstrong; City Manager Banks Akin; and City Secretary Thania Santos.
