Stockdale city marshal’s report identifies major traffic concerns

The number of vehicles with outdated license plates or inspection stickers was among the many complaints the Stockdale City Council heard in the city marshal’s report during the council’s Jan. 7 meeting. One of the most disturbing concerns is 18-wheelers not stopping for school buses loading and unloading children.

To assist with traffic problems, including speeding, the Stockdale City Council approved the purchase of a radar unit to help the city marshal and deputy marshal to enforce the speed limits. The radar will be purchased as soon as enough funds are available from fines assessed by the municipal court.

City Manager Banks Akin said this avenue is “not to build a [police] department, just a basic need to cover.”

Councilman Scott Soden said he, too, is concerned for the public safety, with so many violations being noted. He called the situation “overwhelming.”

Mayor Ray Wolff addressed the lack of school zone signage near the Stockdale Independent School District campuses, as well as on U.S. 87 and S.H. 97. Since the city has to approve these, a workshop will be held to identify the areas to be zoned. Akin was instructed to review where school zone signage can be placed.

Also to be enforced is the city’s recreational vehicles (RV) policy that was discussed last year and gained council approval Jan. 7. Prior to the approval, Akin gave an overview of the transitory living fee policy for RVs located inside RV parks within the city limits. The council adopted a policy that includes a penalty exemption for park owners, if 48 months are paid in full. Penalties will be assessed when units are closed and then reopened before a designated time, or for not notifying the city of the change.

The council also:

•Reappointed David Rice as the city’s fire marshal.

•Approved the extension of wastewater service along S.H. 123 North approximately 1,300 feet, with the landowners reimbursing the city for the costs involved.

•Approved an interlocal agreement with Wilson County to place a master-degreed librarian in the Sarah Bain Chandler Memorial Library. See related article, below.

In other matters, Akin reported an increase in natural gas sold by the city. Due to the series of cold fronts that the area experienced beginning Nov. 22 and continuing into December, the city sold more natural gas in one month than in 10 years, he said.

Also, City Secretary Thania Santos announced that the filing dates for the May election are Wednesday, Jan. 29, through Friday, Feb. 28. Council seats up for election are Place III, currently held by Scott Soden; Place IV, Becky Adams; and Place V, Roger Armstrong.

In attendance: Mayor Ray Wolff; councilmen Scott Soden, Saul Bosquez, and Roger Armstrong; City Manager Banks Akin, City Secretary Thania Santos, Stockdale Fire Marshal David Rice, Sam Fore Jr. Wilson County Public Library Director Nicki Stohr, and Sarah Bain Chandler Memorial Library Director Kay Deagen.
