City Council Recap November 16, 2021

Body worn cameras for Lockhart Police, BIG Grant for Old Pal Texas Tavern, redistricting meeting dates, incentives and expansion for Iron Ox, Titan Development in the new SH-130 Industrial Park, and the water service agreement with Polonia WSC were discussed in last night’s City Council Meeting.


Body worn cameras for Lockhart Police: City Council gave the Lockhart Police Department the green light to submit a grant application for new body worn cameras through the Office of the Governor.


Old Pal Texas Tavern BIG Grant: Council approved Old Pal Texas Tavern’s BIG Grant, amounting to $11,385, as part of its performance agreement with the Lockhart Economic Development Corporation (LEDC).


Redistricting dates: Councilmembers agreed to tentatively schedule up to four redistricting meetings for February 8, 22, March 8 and 29, 2022. A representative with Bickerstaff, Heath, Delgado & Acosta--the legal firm appointed by City Council--will assist with the redistricting process. Redistricting is required at the beginning of each decade to determine if, based on new population figures provided by the U.S. Census Bureau, the City of Lockhart’s single-member voting districts continue to conform to the U.S. Constitution’s one-person, one-vote requirement.


Iron Ox: Councilmembers approved two agenda items involving Iron Ox. First of which is Iron Ox’s performance agreement with the LEDC for its one-million square foot expansion on the 85-acre site on S. Commerce St. The agreement involves a rebate of up to $200,000 of LEDC funds for the installation of water and wastewater lines to the property. Lastly, City Council also voted to approve the five-year City property tax rebate incentive to Iron Ox once its new expansion facility on S. Commerce St. is completely developed and a certificate of occupancy has been obtained. 


Titan Development: Council approved the sale of 13.615 acres in the SH-130 Industrial Park to Titan Development. The Albuquerque-based company provides real-estate development services, which include multifamily, office, and industrial. A representative with Titan Development told Council that the company plans to further invest in industrial companies, targeting light manufacturing and distribution/logistics, in its new site in Lockhart.


Polonia Water Service Agreement: City Council authorized the City of Lockhart to enter into a Water Service Agreement with Polonia WSC to provide water services to the property on 127 Old Luling Road.
