Blanco-based Ruvalcabas Paving Co. has been chosen from among three bidders to perform repairs to various St. Hedwig streets, as a result of a unanimous vote by the St. Hedwig City Council at its Aug. 7 meeting.

The company quoted a total price of $283,360 to repair:

•East Lupon Road

•East Gable Road

•North Gable Road

•Gable Road

•Mergele Road (including a portion inside the Wilson County line).

According to Jason Staudt of Rakowitz Engineering, Ruvalcabas not only was the apparent low bidder, but the family- owned company tends to focus on one project at a time. Ruvalcabas pledged to start work immediately and estimated that the project would take up to four to six weeks to complete.

Also during the meeting, Councilman Susann Baker presented the crime statistics from June 26 to July 24, from the Bexar County Sheriff’s Office. The report included one burglary of a habitation reported July 17 on U.S. 87 East, three thefts, and two reports of criminal mischief.

Officials also are investigating a July 7 arson fire. Fire Chief Larry Padalecki said a vehicle was reported as on fire on Loop 1604 near its intersection with F.M. 1346 at 3:14 a.m. When firefighters arrived, they found a fully engulfed passenger car parked against a fence. No one was nearby.

A subsequent investigation by the Bexar County Fire Marshal’s Office determined that the fire had been set.

Budget, tax rate

In other business, the council has set a public hearing on the city’s budget and tax rate for Thursday, Sept. 4, at 7 p.m., with the regular council meeting to follow at 7:30 p.m.

Mayor Dee Grimm said that if the city continues for a ninth consecutive year with the ad valorem tax rate of 47.9895 cents per $100 of taxable property value, it would yield $22,696 in additional revenue.

According to the Bexar County Appraisal District, the average value of a residence in St. Hedwig was certified at $139,752. Therefore, the average property owner will pay $670.66 in city taxes. This is an increase of almost $42, based on last year’s certified average-taxable value of $131,070.

The proposed tax rate will yield an approximate total levy of $531,052.64, according to appraisal district data.
