Stockdale marshal to enforce traffic laws
Commuters driving near the Stockdale Independent School District campuses and the Stockdale Industrial Park, beware. The Stockdale City Council has approved ordinances for additional stop signs and has lowered the speed limit in the industrial park. These actions were taken during the Feb. 4 city council meeting.
As reported last month, the city council approved the purchase of a radar unit to help enforce the speed limits. During City Marshal Jim Stewart’s report, Stewart said a radar unit has been purchased and was due to be installed Feb. 6.
Mayor Ray Wolff asked Stewart to patrol the school zones, since he is concerned around the schools. He expressed concern not only about speeders, but also those running through stop signs.
In a related issue, the council amended an ordinance to authorize additional stop signs throughout the city.
The council also lowered the speed limit from 30 mph to 25 mph on the roads located within Stockdale Industrial Park -- West Wheeler and Business Park Avenue. This includes West Wheeler Street from its intersection at S.H. 123 on the east to its intersection with the U.S. 87 bypass on the west end.
The council took no action regarding an issue discussed during executive session.
City attorney Elizabeth Provencio of Denton, Navarro, Rocha & Bernal PC of San Antonio met with the council for almost two hours to discuss the “results of an investigation into grievances against city staff and potential claims against the city based on personnel matters in the public works department.”
After the council reconvened into regular session, Wolff noted for the record that Councilman Roger Armstrong -- who was present for the executive session -- had left and resigned. Wolff also noted Councilman Saul Bosquez was absent for the meeting, but a quorum was present and the meeting continued.
Also during the meeting, the council accepted a proposal for a truck wash on the former Birdsong property. See above for more.
