The city has reviewed the work done by Daniel White and told him to stop all his
activities. It was agreed to have the SRCC President draft a complaint about
Daniel White to be given to the Texas Agriculture Commission listing the
violations of process and negligence as well as an official letter of
disappointment to PARD for allowing the work to be done without proper
notification to SRCC. At the October meeting we will read the letters and vote

5. 7.45 Variance Request for 1304 Alta Vista Ave.
Presenters: Â Jean Mather, Chair of Zoning & Planning Committee
A variance request was made to replace a rotting covered parking area after the
applicant already started the process. The structure in question was originally
built in the side setback many years ago but had deteriorated and was in need
MOTION: Jean Mather/Jason Snell - To support the variance request to rebuild the
carport 2.5 feet into the 5 foot side setback as it originally stood = PASSED
6. 8:00 Update from the Transportation and Public Safety Committee about the
newly launched Neighborhood Watch Patrol program
Presenter: Marc Davis, Member of Transportation and Public Safety Committee
So far 24 neighbors have been trained with 12 actively participating in car,
foot and bike patrols for the last 2 months. Statistics will be compiled and
compared after 6 months of patrols. Maria Canchola has asked her constables to
pass through the area on trips between the office and the courthouse to add to
the presence. Also, after further investigation it was realized that the funds
approved for the purchase of Neighborhood Watch signs for the area were
insufficient and only served to cover the cost for the city to install the
signs. An additional $175 is needed to purchase the signs which will complete
the intention of the original vote to support the effort.
MOTION: Marc Davis/Merrell Foote - To approve an additional $175 to purchase the
signs = PASSED
7. 8:15 General Announcements
A huge thank you to Teresa Griffin for participating in the Zoning and
Planning Committee and helping to craft the guidelines and documents currently
used by the committee. Teresa is stepping down with Kent Anschutz and Russel
Fraser stepping up to join Jean Mather.
