STOCKDALE -- While development continues in the city’s industrial park, the city council has turned its attention to improvements in downtown Stockdale, too.

During the May 6 council meeting, Stockdale City Manager Banks Akin said funds are available for upgrading the downtown sidewalks to ADA (Americans with Disability Act) standards. A $150,000 grant is available. The city has to provide matching funds of $50,000 -- for a total of $200,000.

Documentation prepared by Langford Community Management indicates an estimated $72,000 is needed for the north side of West Main Street. The estimates include engineering costs.

The council approved participating in the downtown revitalization sidewalk project grant and matching funds.

Also during the meeting, the council resolved a simmering issue.

Edwin Baker has resumed his former role as chief of the Stockdale Volunteer Fire Department (VFD), effective immediately. The council rescinded a motion from its Feb. 4 meeting, effectively not accepting Baker’s resignation.

Baker, who was present for the May meeting, outlined a number of financial matters with the council. Among those were the rural nature of the VFD’s service area, and the department’s urgent need for a tanker. For the department to go forward, he said, other requests also need to be addressed. Baker was advised to meet with the city manager to discuss this further.

In other business, Akin said he does not foresee any rate increases for the next city budget. The appraised value of taxable property for Stockdale from the Wilson County Appraisal District is estimated at $52 million -- an increase of $2 million, he said.

Also during the meeting, the council:

•Accepted the resignation of Helen Deason, who has served as a member of the Sarah Bain Chandler Memorial Library committee since its formation in January 2004.

•Heard a presentation from Karen Rego, grant administrator with Langford Community Management, regarding participation in a home program funded through the Texas Department of Housing and Community Affairs, for people with limited income.

•Approved a resolution for the city to participate in the home program as presented by Rego, and authorized the city manager to act on the city’s behalf.

•Approved the donation of two utility trucks to the Stockdale Independent School District. The city obtained two vehicles from the San Antonio River Authority.

•Approved closing West Wheeler Street between S.H. 123 N. and Eighth Street during the Stockdale Watermelon Jubilee, June 19-21.

•Set a workshop for Monday, May 19, to discuss the duties and responsibilities of the city marshal’s office. For more, see article below.

Also in attendance: Mayor Ray Wolff; councilmen Sherry D. Lambeck, Scott Soden, and Saul Bosquez; City Secretary Thania Santos, City Marshal Jim Stewart.
