District 10 Update 22 May, 2018

District 10 Newsflash
Brought to you by Clayton Perry, District 10

May 22, 2018

Howdy Neighbors, 

Last night's attendance at the District 10 Community Meeting was excellent. I was so glad to see so many residents turn out to hear our speakers and bring thoughtful questions. We heard from Metro Health regarding Zika and how to best avoid and prevent mosquitoes this summer, Officer Zach Knox with tips on park safety, Diana Kenny with an update regarding the District 10 Homeless and Panhandling Task Force, and Transportation and Capital Improvements regarding the intersection of Randolph at Weidner. If you have questions regarding the intersection improvements, please contact Joey Doctor at

Last night, I had the opportunity to speak with you all about the upcoming Budget Goal Setting Session for Fiscal Year 2019. My priorities for the upcoming fiscal year include implementing a Homestead Tax Exemption, additional public safety officers, and better streets here in District 10. Please email us and let us know where our District and City need attention. I'd also like to take this opportunity to remind you all to call in issues to 3-1-1. By calling 3-1-1, issues can be tracked along and across district lines and patterns can be determined for future manpower, funding, or to determine if a new program can be implemented.

SAWS has announced that Stage 1 water restrictions are in place. Watering with an irrigation system is only allowed once a week before 11 a.m. or after 7 p.m. and is determined by the last digit of your address. The schedule is as follows: Addresses ending in a -0 or 1 can water on Monday, 2 or 3 on Tuesday, 4 or 5 on Wednesday, 6 or 7 on Thursday, 8 or 9 on Friday. Hand watering is allowed at any time. For more information, click here.

The Runoff Election is today, May 22nd. As a reminder, you can vote in this election even if you did not participate in the Primary Election. Check your county elections website for voting information and locations. 

The District 10 Field Office will be closed on Monday, May 28th in observation of Memorial Day. We hope that you all enjoy your Memorial Day weekend and take some time to remember those who made the ultimate sacrifice for our country.

As always, thank you for being active community members and leaders here in District 10, and do not hesitate to contact our office if we can be of any assistance to you.

Open Surveys

District 10 Surveys

Here in 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. 

We'd 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.

City Council met during B-Session on April 11th to review the proposed short term rental ordinance for operators in San Antonio. The ordinance received a variety of feedback from City Council and will move back to Governance Committee for additional comments and review. This survey is to gauge District 10 residents' thoughts on the proposed regulations for Short Term Rentals operating in San Antonio. Please participate in our survey, here
