est building,” said Vidaurri.
The city manager proposed the city
stack all of its burnable debris south of
City Park #3 on the east side of Castro
Avenue. The second brush disposal site
is the restricted access location adja-
cent to the Medina County jail.
“We gave the fire marshal and
TNRCC a site map and we hope to
have approval this week to proceed
with a controlled bum," said Vidaurri.
“If we get approval tonight, we can start
taking debris to those two locations.”
Vidaurri told council he wanted to
start the city wide collection of debris
and time it so that when and if the
city receives TDHC A approval, they
will still have plenty of work on
which to spend the $350,000.
The city manager said he was also
considering asking the Texas Depart-
ment of Criminal Justice if they will
loan the city the labor of clients re-
siding in the Ney Unit.
“Hopefully, we can get TDCJ cli-
ents and other volunteers and use the
streets and parks department person-
nel to pickup brush and take it to the
staging areas,” said Vidaurri.
The cleanup process will take 90
to 120 days, estimated Vidaurri.
“People are growing impatient,”
said Mayor Jim Barden. “The sooner
we clean the streets and alleys and at-
Here comes Santa!
Former mayor's
Christmas Eve
tradition to be revived
Santa Claus will be back in town
Christmas Eve - distributing candy
to young people as he travels up and
down the streets.
Years ago the late Mary Lopez con-
vinced her sister to dress up as Santa
Claus and, with a few young acquain-
tances riding along as elves, they
would drive around the community
playing Christmas music and hand-
ing out candy to children.
The Christmas Eve tradition con-
tinued until about 1994
The former Hondo mayor and
owner of Flowers and More flower
shop delighted in giving something
back to the community she loved,
according to her sister, Adelina
Lopez, who continues to operate the
shop with the help of their long-time
designer Dorothy Mason.
Mary’s life ended suddenly nearly
two years ago and Adelina has de-
cided to revive the Santa tradition in
her memory.
Beginning around dusk on Christ-
mas Eve, the entourage will board a
lighted and decorated flatbed trailer,
turn on Christmas music, and begin
driving slowly up and down Hondo
streets. They intend to travel every
street in town.

tack brush piles, the better we serve
our taxpayers. It may take a long time
to do it ourselves, but we need to dem-
onstrate we are doing something.”
Vidaurri said he would erect signs
directing people to dump burnable
debris at the Castro Ave. location.
“I’ll hire contract labor and we will
rent two chippers and try to start mak-
ing headway,” he said.
Low bidder Joe Ramon Jr. told
council he thought a contractor could
do the work for less money than the
city and warned council they were
making a mistake by rejecting the
bids. However, City Attorney Rene
Ruiz said all options would still be
open if council rejected the bids from
contractors because the city could act
under emergency provisions.
“We want progress and, if we wait
on state aid like we waited on FEMA,
we may not have any work done,”
said Barden. “We should be able to
do significant work and still have
$350,000 worth of work remaining.”
Councilman Todd Hargrove made
the motion to reject all burnable de-
bris removal bids and authorized the
city manager to proceed with the in-
house cleanup as discussed.
Barrientes seconded the motion
which passed by unanimous vote.
The decision regarding nonbum-
able debris was evident after the pro-
longed discussion. Barrientes made
the motion to reject all nonbumable
debris removal bids. The motion
passed by unanimous consent after
being seconded by Rivers.
Mayor Barden said he hoped the
city manager used all the resources
of the city to conduct the cleanup and
also would consider using the ser-
vices of low bidder J.R. Ramon and
Sons Inc. He also encouraged
Vidaurri to determine what role vol-
unteers could play in the cleanup.
“We can start rolling if we don't mind
losing some reimbursement from the
state. But, so be it,” the mayor said.
“We can’t dilly-dally anymore."
