Bexar County Commissioners say yes to plans for a new public improvement district in the far western part of the county--which will include plans for a new sheriff's office substaiton in the area.
"It takes our officers every day--every shift--anywhere from 70 miles to 200 and sometimes 300 miles a day just to get to the districts in which they serve" said Sheriff Susan Pamerleau, welcoming the planned new substation. Commissioner Sergio "Chico" Rodriguez said such an improvement is clearly needed.
"It's a one way in, one way out to 1604. It takes the city fire department 18 minutes to get there from Wiseman and 151 in an emergency"Rodriguez said.
TRhe newly approved district will cover more than three-thousand acres--and include more than seven-thousand single-residence homes.
