Have you heard about te 100 homes they are planning to build behind the school? Have you seen the first house? The city has called two special meetings tonight (wed.) If you have question or concerns, now is the time to show up!

Jourdanton should focus on the dilapidated buildings near the annex (the back of the town). The city should make something out of those to make Jourdanton worth living in. But of course, the people running this city are more concerned with the building of over priced homes. I'm getting tired of this ignorant, worthless town.

Sounds like the same old crew that craps on anything anyone does in Jourdanton to move the city forward.
The town has been sorely lacking in housing for years. Now we have an oil boom and we are getting new houses and you cry babies are complaining. If you dont like them, dont buy them, someone else will.

As far as the old houses, it is not the city that needs to do something, it is the owners.

You people that are constant complainers even when good things are going on in Atascosa County make me ill.

LOL...They know who they are. They complained about a new hospital, they complained about Highway 16 getting re-paved, they complain about water leaks, and when the city replaced the water lines, they complained about the cost of the new lines. They complained about the old sewer plant and now the city is getting a new sewer plant, you guessed it...they are complaining about it.
They NEVER EVER have a positive word to say about anything and they see conspiracies around every corner. It is truly sad that they are occasionally able to hobble progress the way they do.

Conspiracy? I mentioned nothing of that nature. I'm just saying, the city should focus on cleaning up the part of town that has those unpleasant buildings. Right? If Jourdanton had nice things back there, we would attract people to actually like living here. But of course, it's not going to happen. And of course my post wasn't read correctly.

Those with the junkiest properties tend to be the ones that fight the hardest against cleaning them up.

I, for one, am glad to see now housing come to Jourdanton, especially near the school where kids can walk to class. Let the free market work. If the homes are overpriced they wont sell. If they are priced properly they will. Period.

New housing is a plus in any small community. How someone can possible link a new subdivision and the cleaning up of old run down areas is curious to say the least. The two issues have nothing to do with each other.

I agree with the above poster... Some folks will complain about any and everything.

All I'm saying is that the "bad" side of town needs a clean up, it's so unpleasant to drive by.

It would indeed be nice if some of the run down homes would get fixed up but it is the responsibility of the owners.

I am one for personal responsibility. If it is your property, clean it up. If the city can facilitate that then great.

This is an exciting time to live in Jourdanton. This economic boom will help lots of native Atascosa County be able to raise the next generation without having to move away for want of a decent paying job. It will help the small communities of the area fund much needed infrastructure improvements.
I for one have no complaints about the city,(except for potholes and even those have been mostly repaired lately). If they do something I dont agree with I will be the first to jump on them about it, but right now I am satified that they are doing what they can with the funds that are available.

I for one am glad for the boom. New things are good. My biggest concern with Indian Crossing is what may happen if we ever get serious rain again. But I guess the home owners will deal with that when it happens.

To the critics. The city is not in the business of building or refurbishing personal property. That's not their function. They are here for infrastructure. Water, police, etc.

I too am greatful for the boom has given alot of people jobs and people the chance to do better for their families but this city does slack in alot of ways the roads r horriable and the park is not maintained very well and now the swimming pool is closed besides somewhere to live what does this city have to offer to the many famlies moving to this area? and just a question we pay taxes every year to the city for what ??? I always thought that money was to go to maintaining the city such as roads and parks and city public pool but all i see is a bunch of new cop cars and city trucks driving around all day and i hear of city reps and employees getting raises for what the city still looks poor and crappy just saying!

You see "a bunch of new cop cars and city trucks"? Shows how little you know. The last few vehicles the city bought were used cars and used trucks...both for the police and public works. When I saw them it struck me as odd, so I inquired. The city has never bought more than one NEW car in any given calendar year. At least not in the 20+ years I have been around the area. The employees of the city regardless of their job, make FAR less than they would at most any other city in Texas, so to claim salaries are high is beyond absurd. The reality is that the city paid to have a salary study done and was told that they were far behind where they should be in respect to salaries.
These are FACTS that anyone can simply walk into city hall and verify. Instead most will lurk around the internet spouting crap they know nothing about.
I drove around Jourdanton this weekend and saw heavy equipment all over....equipment that is paving streets and building a new parking lot at the park. People need to be realistic...they dont want to pay higher taxes but they want more and better services. Clueless they are....
