Poth council orders election
POTH -- Voters here in May will select a mayor and three councilmen. The Poth City Council has ordered a general election and a special election for Saturday, May 10.
Darren Dylla and Eric Ramirez will be up for re-election to their council seats. Mayor Paul Martinez, who was appointed earlier this year to replace Travis Pruski, also will be up for election to a full, two-year term.
A special election for a one-year, unexpired term also will take place. Keith Rodgers, who currently holds the seat, was appointed to replace Martinez when he was appointed mayor.
Also during the meeting, Municipal Judge Hilda Tejada informed the council that the city’s warrant roundup soon will begin. The mailing of collection notices is set to commence by mid-February. Those with outstanding municipal court fines are urged to contact Tejada at 830-484-2521, or visit http://bit.ly/1fmtBLo.
In other business, the council tabled discussion of the city’s annual scholarship for graduating Poth High School students. In years past, students have designed the city’s logo and have written essays about ideas to improve life in Poth. One recent proposal led to the creation of the city’s recycling center on Railroad Street.
In attendance: Mayor Paul Martinez and councilmen Steve Martinez, Jason Smolka, and Keith Rodgers; City Secretary Rose Huizar, Chief Lowell Hull and Sgt. Jonathan Kurtz of the Poth Police Department, Public Works Supervisor Kenneth “Buck” Griffin, City Clerk Misty Fish, Municipal Judge Hilda Tejada, and City Engineer Dean Bayer.
