Meetings. This month we're going to give you all the opportunity
to tune in and participate in our monthly meeting via WebEx. Our
monthly meeting will be hosted on July 20 at 7:00 PM, and the
best part is you can join from the comfort of your own home!
We'll be joined by Deputy City Manager - Maria Villagomez, San
Antonio Chief of Police - William McManus, Northeast Neighborhood
Alliance President and former District 10 Councilman - Mike
Gallagher, and the Captain of SAPD's North Substation - Leslie

The City of San Antonio has also put together a
survey compiling feedback for the FY 2021 Trial Budget.
Unfortunately, the COVID-19 crisis has left the City's budget
with funding shortages, and they need you to tell them which
services matter most to you and to District 10. On June 26,
Director of Government and Public Affairs, Jeff Coyle presented
results of the
survey. Only 6.7% of survey respondents were from District 10 - I
know we can do better than that! The budget affects every San
Antonian, so be sure to make your voice heard by taking the quick
survey here. Please
continue to share this survey with your neighbors so the City can
get an idea of what District 10's budget priorities are. This
survey will remain open throughout July.
The FY 2020 Mid-Year Budget Review can be found here. The remainder of the Fiscal Year 2021 Budget
schedule can be found here. There will be no City Council meetings throughout
the month of July, we will resume meeting on August 6 for the FY
2021 Proposed Operating & Capital Budget Presentation.
Thank you so much to everyone who participated in
the District 10 Budget Survey. We are always so gracious for your
feedback. Over 300 of you participated in the survey! You may
view the results here. These results helped us advocate for you all at
the Budget Goal-Setting Session on June 26. You may watch the
Many of us are experiencing loss in a way that we
never have before. Our neighbor, Larry Johnson, shared a

I See It." You may watch his video "About Loss"

As always, thank you for being active community
members and leaders here in District 10. Please do not hesitate

Parents, & Guardians: Process for Decision Making Regarding
Following July 14’s announcement from the Texas
Education Agency (TEA) that local public health officials that
order Texas schools closed for in-person instruction this fall
will not risk state education funding, Metro Health with the
support of the COVID-19 Community Response Coalition will convene
a task force to make local recommendations the public health
authority for Bexar County.
“We’ve heard from many parents, teachers and
administrators with concerns about starting the school year with
in-person instruction while cases of COVID-19 are surging in
Texas,” said Assistant City Manager and Interim Metro Health
Director Dr. Colleen Bridger. “This task force will work together
to help us make an informed decision about the best way to
proceed with the health and safety of our children and all school
staff as our highest priority.”
School districts typically fall under the authority
of the State of Texas, not the City of San Antonio or Bexar
County. However, the TEA has effectively given the authority to
local communities to decide whether schools will open with
in-person learning, rather than just remote learning.
The task force will include teachers, parents,
students, teachers’ unions, school districts, universities,
pediatricians and public health professionals. The task force
will meet this week and will make recommendations about the safe
reopening of schools in Bexar County. Updates will be shared at covid19.sanantonio.gov.
