District 10 Surveys
District 10, we're already looking "down the road" for
repairs and upgrades. We've been hard at work reviewing and tweaking
the 2018 street repair schedule, but we are always on the lookout for
the big projects that can truly transform District 10. We've started
a running list of future bond projects for consideration, but we need
your help in guiding us to what District 10 needs most. Please help
us determine what your priorities are for the future 2022- 2027 Bond
by completing this survey. It's not too early for us to
start this process at our level.
like to gauge our neighbors on their desire for a homestead tax exemption,
for them to assign a monetary value to what they consider relief, and
what services they are OK with being reduced in the City Budget in
order to receive a homestead exemption. If a resident is not willing
to cut services in order to receive a tax break, that's valuable
information. If a resident considers an extra $100 in tax reduction a
real relief, that's also valuable information. The results of this
survey will help guide our office as we push forward with tax relief
options for our residents. Please participate in our survey, here.

regulations for Short Term Rentals operating in San Antonio. Please
participate in our survey, here.
Healthy Tips with Dr. Bridger
balanced? Funny how
often in life it takes losing something to really appreciate it. Stay
with me here. This is not a sad column. It is actually quite funny.
Especially if the thought of a person soaking wet with river water
and covered in mud brings a smile to your face. Recently my husband,
Chuck and I went canoeing. Before we made it out on the river,
however, we discovered the importance of balance...and what happens
when you lose it!
It started out like you'd expect. We had all our stuff
loaded in the canoe. It was chilly but sunny and I had successfully
made it to my seat in the front. Then Chuck got in and was in his
seat when suddenly and for no apparent reason the boat lurched to the
right and before I knew it I was completely submerged in the very
cold river water and mud. My pride feels the need for me to mention
that Chuck and I go canoeing a lot and had previously never once
tipped or even come close to tipping. In fact, it never even occurred
to me that we might tip until I was jumping out the water wondering
what the heck just happened.
Well, there we were cold, wet, shocked and suffering from
the after-effects of being unbalanced. The first thing each of us did
was check in with the other. No major wounds were discovered so then
we checked in with the canoe. It was completely full of water. A
paddle was escaping into the current so I raced back into the river
to get it. After rescuing most of the bait (poor crickets) and the
rest of the submerged items in the canoe we headed back to the cabin
to regroup and re-clothe.
At this point we had an important decision to make...we
could: 1) ditch the outing entirely, 2) continue with our fishing
plans, but take the much more stable bass boat instead or 3) try it
again. I've always been of the "get back on the horse"
mentality so option 3 won the day. With some modifications to our
embarking methods, we made it back into the canoe and out onto the
river with no further incident, caught a gazillion fish and saw some
Unbalanced is such a loaded word. We all work hard to avoid
even the appearance of being unbalanced. One of my first thoughts
after I fell out of the canoe, was "I'm sure glad nobody was
here to see that!" In retrospect, however, I've realized that
occasionally being unbalanced is just what everybody needs. Because
after you lose your balance you work a little harder to find it.
