This puppy chews on a biscuit at the Humane Society animal shelter. While the biscuit is obviously tasty, she'd love to come to dinner at your house—permanently. She
could use a permanent home, as could all the animals at the shelter, located on Kuehler Avenue. The shelter will also accept strays or unwanted pets.

Garden Ridge engineer analyzing street repair bids

Bids for Garden Ridge’s 1963 street improvement projects “came in a little higher than what we’d hoped,’’ said City Engineer Craig Hollmig. But he was more or less expecting that.
“We’ve been spoiled the last couple of years. With the economic situation the way it was, we got some low bids,’’ said the engineer. “But these look reasonable.”
The City Council got seven offers at Monday night’s meeting, at prices ranging from $39,000 to $66,000. Hollmig is now analyzing the bids, and will make a recommendation at a special council meeUng some time in the next few weeks, said Mayor Paul Davis.
Hollmig said Alvin Sa ut and the Craco company appear to be the low bidders at this point.
His specifications call for approximately 4,000 feet of rebuilt street, plus two culverts to correct existing drainage problems.
Council discussed preliminary plans for a business district on the FM 2252 corridor, which was annexed last fall.
At present, Garden Ridge has only two types of zoning: residential and agricultural. City leaders have agreed, however, that the FM 2252 area presents a natural business district. The Lone Star Ice House and Garden Ridge Taco Company are already there, and larger concerns loom in the city’s extraterritorial jurisdiction.
“We’re in the process of collecting data for (the) Planning and Zoning (Commission),” said Davis.
Anticipating development in this area, Garden Ridge voters approved a one-percent city sales tax on April 2.
