City tables pipeline easement


The Fort Stockton City Council met in regular session on Tuesday, Nov. 28, where they tabled two of their four action items.

The council first called for public testimony on agenda items, and was met with none. A presentation of the Fort Stockton Police Department’s statistics for October was not given, as Interim Chief of Police Sal Rangel was unable to attend the meeting due to circumstances from earlier in the day.

The council briefly addressed a Surface-Use Agreement at Belding Well Field with B&J Air and Pump.

Mayor Chris Alexander stated the council had received documentation for this item only a short time before the meeting, and that the city’s counsel had not had time to review it. Because of this, it was moved to table this item, along with the next item discussing an Oxy Pipeline Easement at Blue Ridge Farms.

To conclude the meeting, the council met in executive session regarding the purchase of property for the placement of an AMI tower. Upon re-entering into open session, the council unanimously voted to allow City Manager Frank Rodriguez to pursue negotiations for the property placement of the tower.
