SEDC nixes charter change, approves utility easement
A division among the directors of the Stockdale Economic Development Corp. (SEDC) is now settled, after the board met April 8 for its monthly meeting.
SEDC directors Roger Armstrong and L.H. West reminded members that an agenda item stemming from the Jan. 14 meeting, “requiring a standing monthly board meeting,” required discussion. (See March 11, “Will SEDC directors’ division hamper business expansion?”)
SEDC Administrator Johnny Stahl asked if a change in the charter was necessary to meet West and Armstrong’s request for monthly meetings.
Discussion ranged from whether interoffice memos sufficed between meetings to a suggestion by Stahl that in three or four years, the board would need less frequent meetings, as its activity will dwindle.
Director J.C. Hrubetz suggested no change to the charter, but that directors should meet monthly when activity requires it.
While the board president tried to move the agenda on without any formal decision, Armstrong questioned the lack of action.
The issue was settled when a motion was made and approved by the board to meet monthly, when needed, and not to change the charter’s minimum stipulation of quarterly meetings.
The board also discussed interest in removing fill material in the park, and approved authorizing Stahl to explore interest from parties wishing to do so. The board will have final approval for such arrangements.
The board also approved a utility easement on the west side of Business Park Avenue.
The 10-foot easement for an 8-inch wastewater line would assist tenants, such as Gibson Energy and Stockdale Trucking Service.
L.H. West made a motion to approve the easement, and to authorize the city manager to spend up to $5,000 in materials, such as pipes and manholes. The motion carried unanimously.
Also discussed during the meeting was the expansion of Fox Chapel Oil Field Services and Gibson Energy’s interest in building in the park. See page 4A for more.
Also in attendance: Stockdale EDC directors Polly Stryker and Ginger Coleman; and Stockdale City Manager Banks Akin.
