City plans sales tax vote in May for street work

The offices of mayor, three council positions and Proposition 1 (the adoption of local sales tax use in Yorktown) was approved for ballot in the general election to be held on May 9 during the regular city council meeting held on Feb. 23.

Last year Yorktown voters voted in favor of the proposition to allow the reauthorization of local sales and use tax in Yorktown at the rate of one-fourth of one percent to continue providing revenue for maintenance and repair of municipal streets. The proposition, last year, passed with 115 votes in favor and 15 against.

Yorktown city manager Robert Mendez said, “The proposition was never put into effect. The state comptroller was in disagreement in the process. Our attorney said we did everything right. We are following the procedures to meet the criteria set by the state comptroller.”

Portable public, police protection

With the new implementation of body cameras in the DeWitt County, for Yorktown it is nearly old hat.

Yorktown officer Joshua Serbin said, “We did not say anything but we were the first agency in DeWitt County to wear the body cameras. We have been wearing these since Dec. 29, 2014.”

The department was not looking to be the first in the county to have the body cameras. It was mainly to keep the city protected.

Lt. Vicente Flores said, “Chief Paul Campos started to look outside the mocks. He saw that other communities were having problems with the officers and community regarding the issues of officer’s behavior. After he did all the research he said, ‘It is a liability for the city not to have cameras.’ There are a lot of malicious complaints but not here, not in this community. Not yet.”

Lt. Flores has been in the police force since 1986. One of the major changes he has seen in his career was the word of an officer.
