Open Forum:
Richard Cedillo address the council with a petition regarding the things that need to be done at the park and couple weeks ago, I came to the meeting to discuss the park. Dora had mentioned "The city will be receiving a grant for the playground equipment." I found out that St. Patrick Church had donated this piece of land to the city. The fence would still need to be replaced around the baseball field and the other park with the playground equipment. I'm looking at a 6 ft. link fence. The old playground equipment needs to be removed. I asked the District Clerk and Judge about any requirements regarding a petition for the park. I have here a petition for the changes of the park and there are 61 signatures. I am giving it to the council and mayor, so that you can take a look at it. Mayor said, "Council, does anyone have any questions?" Council did not response. Robert Stluka: I am here on behalf of Texas Disposal System.
