KENEDY – Councilman Brandon Briones took the opportunity to voice concerns about truck route enforcement and the possibility of repairing unused fire trucks during the public comments portion of the Kenedy City Council meeting Jan. 10.

Briones said that trucks are still traveling through downtown Kenedy instead of using the established truck route and there is a concern about spills and accidents.

The councilman asked that the council consider ways to improve enforcement of the truck route ordinance.

He also asked the city council to consider repairing unused fire trucks that can be sent to accident scenes when personnel are needed for traffic control assistance.

In other business, the council approved a request regarding the DRC Housing Development located on a 11.732 acre tract behind the old Wal-Mart building.

The permit will be used to build a housing development to house employees being transferred to Karnes County for a major oil company.

The city council also approved a resolution authorizing the city manager to implement a section 3 job training, employment, and contracting opportunities program in order to be in compliance with the city’s Texas community development block grant project area.

Chuck Ramon, a representative of Ramco Water and Reagan Scott, a representative of Alpha Reclaim Technology, LLP gave presentations to the council regarding the reclamation of wastewater for the use of fracking oil wells.

The council voted to table a decision until the next scheduled meeting to give council members more time to review the written proposals given by the two companies.
