Year in Review: New faces in Poth City Hall
The year just ended saw two key personnel changes in the city of Poth.
Lowell Hull took the helm as police chief for the city in January, following the resignation in September 2012 of former Chief Lambert Jendrzey. Hull, a 30-year veteran of the San Antonio Police Department, and Troy Phillips, at the time a Poth police sergeant, were interviewed by the Poth City Council after 33 applications were received.
Travis Pruski stepped down as the city’s mayor in October, citing a need for more time with his family. He had served the city for 10 years, initially as a council member and then as mayor. Paul Martinez, who had served as the city’s mayor pro tem, was sworn in to succeed Pruski.
Under Pruski’s leadership, the city also took stances on matters of national importance during 2013. The council approved an ordinance in April, outlining the city’s desire to maintain the Second Amendment rights of citizens, in the event any federal measures are put into place to limit such rights.
The city also continued its program of road repairs and improvements throughout the year and began a recycling program, in conjunction with the Poth Independent School District.
Late in the year, the council approved to spend $400,000 to install a new water tank, with a capacity between 1.2 and 1.5 million gallons. It is hoped this will alleviate some issues with hot water coming from cold taps in the summer months.
