STOCKDALE -- An understanding between St. Mary’s Catholic Church and the city of Stockdale regarding truck traffic should be honored, according to Stockdale Economic Development Corp. (SEDC) director L.H. West.

West and fellow SEDC director Roger Armstrong strongly advocated against placement of signs for the Stockdale Industrial Park on St. Mary’s Street during the June 10 SEDC meeting. They referenced a meeting with St. Mary’s pastor, the Rev. Dennis Jarzombek, who asked that the city discourage truck traffic on the road leading to the church. See May 8, 2013, “City Council addresses ‘good neighbors’ policy.”

Discussion included comments from past meetings, indicating that truck traffic would be directed to use S.H. 123, Guerra Street, and Wheeler Street.

Armstrong weighed in after SEDC Administrator Johnny Stahl asked the board whether to repair or update signage located off U.S. 87 and Guerra Street.

Former city Mayor Stahl said if truck traffic on St. Mary’s Street was posing a problem, “No Thru Truck Traffic” signs should be installed. Armstrong said he has seen Fox Chapel Oil Field Services’ trucks using that road. No decision was made on the placement of this first sign.

After much discussion, Stahl was directed to obtain prices for a sign advertising the Stockdale Industrial Park and a contact phone number, with no tenants listed.

There was no opposition to the placement of a second sign, along S.H. 123.

Stahl, following instructions from the Stockdale City Council June 3, provided an update regarding signage on city property located off S.H. 123. Stahl must present a design for council approval, including pricing for digital signs.

J.C. Hrubetz and Armstrong volunteered to serve on a committee with Stahl to address this.

The board also learned that the corporation’s nonprofit status has been restored. The group was notified in May 2013 that it had failed to file Internal Revenue Service paperwork for the years 2010 through 2012.

Board President Frank Bain Jr. reported that Stacy MyCue of MyCue & Brown CPA PC of Seguin has filed the needed paperwork and the SEDC has been reinstated to “nonprofit” status, though penalty fees were assessed.

The board approved MyCue & Brown to file the 2013 federal income tax paperwork, but declined other services the firm offered.

Akin said the city’s auditor -- Beyer & Co. of Pleasanton -- checks the SEDC books, since it is an “extended arm of the city of Stockdale.”

Stahl offered an industrial park tenant update, including:

•The closing for purchase of 9.719 acres by Omni Energy, aka Gibson Energy-Keeton Services, is anticipated around June 19.

•Attorney Trent Rowell will represent the SEDC during a conference call with Fox Chapel Group regarding the April 2014 closure of abandoned wells by the Texas Railroad Commission. Akin will forward data from the railroad commission to Rowell.

Also in attendance: SEDC Director Polly Stryker.
