Mayor’s Message – Pleasanton

I hope you are all having a great week. At our last meeting on June. 16, we discussed a few items that were a result of our Washington D.C. visit. If you remember, through our connection with the Office of Congressman Henry Cuellar (TX-28), we arranged meetings with several federal agencies. One of the meetings was with the Department of Justice COPS Division. In the meeting, we discussed the Community Oriented Policing Services program (COPS) hiring program. This program will pay for the salary and benefits costs of four new hire police officers for a period of three years. EMC Strategy Group submitted the grant application last week and we expect to find out the results in late August or early September. This grant will save the city about $546,720 over the three-year period. This equates to 68% of the money required to employ the four officers. This would be a direct result of our visit to D.C. In addition, we are also applying for a grant from the Corps of Engineers to mitigate flooding in the Atascosa River. This grant could help to make the river more accessible, visually pleasing, and safer. We still have additional opportunities to take advantage of funding discovered on the trip to D.C. The city will continue to explore state and federal grants. These grants will help support local projects and save our local tax-payers tens of thousands of dollars. This elevates or reduces the burden to the taxpayers. As we continue to explore funding opportunities, I will keep you posted. I am also pleased to report that the city’s request for a federally appropriated project to support the construction of a new Pleasanton Police Department and Municipal Court, Justice Center, was included in the U.S. House of Representatives draft version of the FY2023 Appropriations bill. EMC Strategy Group worked with the Office of Congressman Henry Cuellar to submit this $2,975,000 federal request. We continue to foster a great relationship with our state and federal legislative delegation. I hope you all continue to have a great week.

All too often, men neglect their health, and, unfortunately, that all too often leads to serious health conditions and untimely deaths. On average, men die almost six years younger than women and suffer higher mortality rates for the top causes of death. It doesn’t have to be this way.
