Council takes care of business
During their regular meeting on September 6, the Bandera City Council voted unanimously to approve a street closure, made decisions regarding bank accounts and addressed park revenue.
A portion of 11th Street, from Cypress to Cedar, will be closed Friday, Sept. 30, at 11:00 am. through Sunday, October 3, at 6:00 a.m. for the 20th Annual Rumble on the River Bike Rally Event at the 11th Street Cowboy Bar.
In other business, the council also unanimously voted in favor to: add City Administrator William Cox as a signer to all city bank accounts; to authorize MayorSuzanne Schauman, to open a bank account for the Wastewater Treatment Plant Fund at Bandera Bank; and to transfer $61,058.00 from the Pooled Cash account to the new Wastewater Treatment Plant Fund account.
City Secretary Jill Shelton provided an update on the seasonal park revenue. “As you know we had closed the park so the numbers that I gave you were through before we stopped charging at the park so our total revenue for this past summer was $96, 499.01, and that was 2,939 people coming through the park,” Shelton said. “We had discussions about charging (Labor Day weekend), but the river was still really murky, so it was the consensus not to do that. The park is officially closed for the season for charging.”
