Today’s newsletter is going out to our full subscriber list, but if you don’t pay for our newsletter Monday-Wednesday these are some of the stories you would have missed: 

  • The race is on for the Kerrville City Council: Incumbent Roman Garcia was formally certified on Monday. Garcia faces challenger and marketing executive Layng Guerriero for the Place 1 race. In the Place 2 race, Barbara Dewell Ferguson and Jeff Harris are facing off. The deadline for filing is Friday. 
  • Another fast-food place is coming, and yes, they serve chicken: A source close to the matter said Freddy’s Custard and Steakburger would be moving into the former Jack in the Box location at the corner of Schreiner and Sidney Baker streets. 
  • More sidewalks: The Kerrville City Council carefully approved a final plan from the Texas Department of Transportation to construct sidewalks on Hill Country, Cully and Wesley drives near and around Peterson Regional Medical Center. 
  • Fixing the roads by limiting utility cuts: The Kerrville City Council tackled an issue that troubles many people, not just in Kerr County but all motorists who want to navigate a smooth tarmac pathway. During the 4 p.m. workshop, the City Council discussed limiting the amount of damage developers, and utility crews can do to the roadways through an improved ordinance or technology. 
  • Is the Hill Country Youth Event Center’s indoor arena about to be closed? After the defeat of a pair of bond initiatives in November, Kerr County Judge Rob Kelly said Monday the Hill Country Youth Event Center’s indoor arena might have to be closed because it’s no longer safe. Updating and repairing the aging structure, built with volunteer labor in the 1980s, was estimated to cost $8 million, but the voters rejected Prop. B, which would have paid for the renovations. “We know we have a dangerous facility, and we’re letting people use it,” Kelly said. “We may need to consider closing down the indoor arena. We’ve got to do something, but it’s dangerous for the public.”
