Library coming to Poth, county bans burning
Wilson County NewsAugust 13, 2014 | 2,339 views | 1 comment
Poth is the latest municipality to benefit from the continued expansion efforts of Wilson County’s public library system. The Wilson County Commissioners Court, at its Aug. 11 meeting, approved a plan to establish a branch there.
For the past year, said Library Director Nicki Stohr, the Floresville-based Sam Fore Jr. Wilson County Public Library has operated a free book exchange. Patrons swap books via a stand-alone box located in front of the Wilson County Justice of the Peace Precinct 2 office. Stohr said the building’s owner, Gene Maeckel, wants to donate an indoor space to be used by the library. Maeckel and the county will sign a $0, one-year lease, Stohr said.
The new branch will have no budgetary impact on the county at this time, Stohr said, because Maeckel also will donate the utilities. Stohr said she will personally staff the Poth branch 12 hours per week, Tuesday through Thursday.
For more information, call the Sam Fore Jr. Wilson County Public Library in Floresville, at 830-393-7361.
In other business, the commissioners enacted a 90-day ban on outdoor burning. Until Nov. 10, residents in unincorporated areas of Wilson County only will be permitted to burn household trash in screened burn barrels during daylight hours. Any agricultural burning first must be approved by the Wilson County Health and Public Safety Office, which can be reached at 830-393-8503.
In other business, the commissioners voted to retain Pleasanton-based Beyer & Co. to perform the county’s fiscal year 2014 financial audit. According to County Auditor Tom Dupnick, the total costs are not to exceed $23,000.
