Elmendorf postpones zoning ordinances
The city of Elmendorf is without a zoning ordinance for another month.
The city council tabled action on the ordinance after hearing from the public Nov. 14 during the regular council meeting. Citizens voiced concerns regarding boundaries between residential and industrial areas. City Administrator Cody Dailey said the citizens’ concerns would be addressed at the next council meeting.
Dailey added that upon receiving a professional zoning map, he would be able to detail boundary lines more closely.
The council also tabled an interlocal agreement with Bexar County for police dispatch services. Police Chief Michael Pimentel and Dailey recommended tabling the item until discussing it with Bexar County Pct. 4 Commissioner Tommy Adkisson.
The agreement would charge the city’s police department for the use of Bexar County dispatch services, whether generated by a city or county officer.
In other business, the council approved a settlement with Kilowatt Park Land, LLC. The lawsuit stems from a Public Improvement District (PID) fee that was originally implemented as a tax. It was later challenged and ruled as an “illegal tax,” as it was never voted on by the residents. The city has been in negotiations with the company since mid-August.
The council also:
•Approved a bid for a professionally created zoning map.
•Approved a revised contract with Wells Fargo for banking services.
•Took no action regarding pending litigation involving Paul Moreno. No information was provided by the city on this matter prior to publication Nov. 18.
Elmendorf City Council Nov. 14 regular meeting. In attendance: Mayor Manuel Decena; councilmen Richard Rodriguez, Andy Anderson, Tommy Hicks, and Linda Ortiz; City Secretary Roxanne De Leon; City Administrator Cody Dailey; City Attorney Michael Guevara; Chief of Police Michael Pimentel.
