everyone who came out to our District 10 Community Meeting on
Monday. I was so pleased with SAPD's participation and the
audience's applause for our neighborhood SAFFE officers.
We heard from
Chief of Police William McManus on department policy and public
perception, and both he and Assistant Chief of Police Anthony
Trevino answered questions from the audience. After the meeting
concluded, our SAFFE officers stayed behind to talk one-on-one with
neighbors and address their concerns. The new police contract has
been approved by police union members (70% approval), and is
expected to come before City Council early September.
We also heard
from our city-wide and District 10 National Night Out coordinators
on why National Night Out is so important. Last year, San Antonio
came second in the nation for city-wide National Night Out events,
and we aim to take first place this year. If your neighborhood has
not yet registered as participating in National Night Out, now is
the time. We've included a list of currently registered District 10
neighborhoods in this newsletter, as well as contact information
for our District 10 coordinator. If your neighborhood would like to
request our office to stop by, please email firstname.lastname@example.org
as soon as possible.
I'm pleased to
announce that District 10's own Bud Little has been nominated to be
inducted into the Texas Radio Hall of Fame. Bud's famous voice
could be heard on local talk radio station WOAI; he retired after
38 years in 2010. Since then, he has been an active District 10
resident, participating in neighborhood organizations and the
revitalization efforts along Perrin Beitel and Nacogdoches. We
congratulate Bud, and thank him and his wife Faye for continuing to
be a voice for the community.
As a reminder,
next month's Northeast Neighborhood Alliance will be on September
19th, 7PM, at the Northeast Senior Center (instead of the Tool
Yard). As with every September NNA meeting, it will be a potluck
Thank you for
staying actively involved in our community and for your strong
support of District 10.

Notice your water bill is higher
than usual? This may be why: This year's rainy spring
resulted in green lawns, but recent dry weather means customers may
be using more water in irrigation systems to keep it green.
Higher summer water bills are an
annual occurrence, but SAWS is seeing many bills with high water use
this year. So it's worth another reminder that SAWS charges more per
gallon as water use increases.
This year, SAWS started using an
eight-tier pricing structure to encourage water conservation. The
structure allows customers to save money quickly with small
reductions to water use but it also means that those who use large
amounts of water will see higher per-gallon costs, causing bills to
An in-ground irrigation system,
which can use more than 3,000 gallons each time it runs, is one of
the major culprits. And systems not properly programmed or maintained
can use a lot more.
A free irrigation checkup may help
reduce your bill. SAWS conservation technicians can visit your
home by appointment to help you save water. Call 704-SAVE (704-7283)
for an appointment or more information.

Power Plant Demolition
CPS has begun the final phase of
the Tuttle Power Plant demolition project. From July-December 2016,
neighbors of the Tuttle Power Plant can expect to hear some noise and
construction traffic at the entrance along Perrin Beitel. Please

dust-suppression measures are in place.
To address traffic concerns, CPS
has shared the following:
contractor vehicles carrying personnel will enter/exit through
the North Gate at 9911 Perrin Beitel Rd.
demolition traffic will exit by making a right turn only onto
Perrin Beitel Rd.
trucks will be scheduled so that high traffic times are not
delivery of heavy equipment, flagmen wearing high-visibility
vests and TxDOT approved flags will be used to assist trucks
entering and exiting the property.
CPS has also established a hotline
that provides weekly updates on the project. You can call (210)
