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 Joe.Doctor@SanAntonio.gov.
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.

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.
Council met during B-Session on April 11th to review the proposed short term rental

regulations for Short Term Rentals operating in San Antonio. Please
participate in our survey, here.
