Council accepts petition
PALACIOS BEACON, WED., AUG. 15,1984-PAGE 3
Annexation expands city limits
201 Main Si.
Palacios city limits grew a bit
larger last week, and will likely
grow even more in the next two
weeks after the city council
accepted one annexation petition
and is waiting on a second.
In their meeting last week, the
council accepted an annexation
petition for 25.3642 acres north of
McGlothlin adjacent to the east
side of HWY 35 from Jack
Maddox. At the same time, the
council table accepted an annexa-
tion petition from three "resi-
dents” of Bethany Park Subdivi-
sion, a 24.8889-acre development
on the northside of the Maddox
The petition for Bethany Park
was submitted by three register-
ed voters who supposedly were
residing on the property. Howev-
er, after councilman Cliff Elliott
questioned whether the three
“residents” actually lived in the
small trailer located at the site,
the council agreed to review the
Elliott recommended that the
owner of the property, Felter-
Pham, Inc. of Houston, be the
ones to petition for annexation.
On Monday, the owners were
notified of council's concern and
agreed to submit a new petition
The annexation of the Maddox
property extends the city’s city
limits 1034-feet north along
HWY 35 and 1077-feet in an
east-west direction at the north
side. Elliott voted against accept-
ance with Tom Templeman,
Margaret McElrath, Johnny Sar-
delich and Johnny Heard in
Once the Bethany Park area is
annexed, the boundary for the
city will stretch another 1034 feet
further north along HWY 35 and
1077 east and west at the
Both annexations will require
the formality of being approved
by the U.S. Justice Department.
Construction work has already

begun on Bethany Park which is
being designed as a 79-unit
residential area. The developme-
nt is primarily a Vietnamese
undertaking which will include
four concrete streets and a
community house. Completion of
the project, krjown as "Lang
Betania" in Vietnamese, is expe-
cted later this year.
In other action taken at last
week's regular meeting and the
ensuing special session on Thurs-
day, the council accepted a right
of way utility easement from
Maddox for approximately 16,
551 sq. ft. Elliott cast the only
dissenting vote on the matter.
Following a lengthy discussion
on whether to purchase two used
police cars from the Department
of Public Safety or wait for the
new 1985 models to come out, the
council came hack on Thursday
and agreed to advertise for new
The council voted unanimously
to obtain prices for extending the
concrete ramp at the landfill
along with a roof for the animal
shelter, closing the drains in the
shop and for a cover over the
Approval was given for draw-
ing up specifications and for
obtaining prices for the restorati-
on of the wooden building next to
city hall. The council had consid-
ered using the building as an
office for the public works
director. Elliott has been against
restoration, noting that the build-
ing was an "eyesore".
A work session in the near
future was planned by the council
to discuss furnishing city servic-
es outside the city limits. Lamar
has stated he felt there would be
no problems in providing the
services if there was no financial
burden placed on the city. Elliott
recommended that the city set a
surcharge on usage instead of
setting a flat fee.
