and Memorial Primary schools will have a new set of stop signs to make their journey safer starting Thursday The city council unanimously approved the first reading of an ordi nance that will put two stop signs on South Walnut Avenue at its intersec tion with Northpark Ridge A crosswalk going across Walnut and one across Northpark Ridge will appear as well as a crossing guard at that intersection Weve spent all this time amending the parade ordinance for the safety of children on an event that happens once or twice a said Dist 2 Council man C Ray Schoch There are chil dren crossing at this intersection every The city council decided to use an ordinance with three readings and let the stop signs be installed quickly under the emergency powers of the police chief rather than emergency ordinance That will get the stop signs up right away but give an opportunity for pub lic input before the ordinance passes completely said Councilwoman Bren da Freeman The move came after 25 Northpark Heights residents took a petition to the Transportation and Traf fic Advisory Boards September meet ing stressing the need for the new safety measures I dont see why taking a second out of someones day to stop at a stop sign is more important than the safety of a little a resident said The ordinance will have two more readings before it is law The city is looking for land The Little League has outgrown its field on Common Street next to the cemetery and that would be an ideal place for a badly needed new station building Gity Manager Mike Shands said Whats needed is an eightto 12 acre piece of land for new Little League fields ideally big enough to include Softball and soccer and maybe an eventual youth center The city seeks an outright donation or a lowprice sale by a civicminded individual or group which has land available Shands said Anyone inter ested should contact Shands at 608 2100 In other business the city council finished tinkering with an improved parade conduct ordinance The paragraph dealing with parade interference was struck completely from the ordinance Approved was a section that pro hibits throwing objects like gifts and candy from the parade The amended ordinance gives the police chief con trol of parade movement after the parade starts The third and final reading of the changes in the parade ordinance passed unanimously last night in time to be in effect for the Comal County Fair Marion gets tough with building code violations By DAVID DE KUNDER Staff Writer The Marion City Council took action on Monday night to crack down on owners who it says are not following the citys building ordinance The council approved a motion to take corrective measures proposed by Building Inspector Dennis Kucherka Kucherka came before the council to talk about three properties he said do not comply with the citys ordinance Kucherka said the first property on the list is a wooden structure located on Meadow Drive in the Marion North Subdivision The problem with this structure is that it has a corrugated tin roof Kucherka said Also the building is not made with 50 percent masonry and the foundation is not placed on concrete making the structure not lev el Kucherka said The second property at 212 Krueger Street is a boardedup house which has overgrown weeds on the property The structure has not been completed the foundation is not stable and the building is starting to sway Kucherka said The third property a carport at Meadow is built with wood which is making the water flow into the center of the roof and going over the port Kucherka said Kucherka said that in all instances he warned the owners verbally or through a letter that they must take care of the alleged violations Kucherka told the council they could give the owners more time to comply if they chose to However following the strong advice of Councilmen Clarence Jackson and Felix Arambula the council decid ed to act now We need to take corrective mea sures and tell them the owners that we are not just talking about Jackson said It is not fair to the other citizens who are following the Kucherka agreed with Jackson Weve got to be tough and firm on Kucherka said Rosemary Hernandez a resident of the Marion North Subdivision came before the council because she received a letter from Kucherka Hernandez had applied for aspermit to build a fence and sidewalk on her property In his let ter to Hernandez Kucherka said that there was a question of whether or not Hernandez built her fence too far away from her property line in an alleyway Kucherka also said that her fence posts are not deep enough and that a side walk she was building in her yard was not level Hernandez was not happy she had to appear before the council She said that Kucherka never contacted her or personally talked to her The only time she knew of her violations Hernan dez said was when she received the let ter I have never met this man Hernandez said He should have con tacted me personally instead of forcing me to come to this meeting I go to the school work for the Marion school district and I am in the reserves But I am home most of the time I have already torn down the Kucherka said that he had tried to contact Hernandez but was not suc cessful The permit you applied for never had a work number where I could have contacted Kucherka said Look I am not here to harass people but to help Mayor Glenn Hild suggested that Kucherka meet with Hernandez after the meeting and advise her on how she should build her fence so that it will comply with the city code Hild said that Hernandez should look at her plot and see where her property line ends so that there is no question on whether or not she is building the fence on her property After the discussion was fin ished the council approved the motion which would send certified letters to the owners asking them to take action on their property or the city will take legal action to do something about it School emptied
