SHEPHERD — While a proposal for a park was found to be a good idea, ultimately it was stalled as Shepherd City Council members had no way to assist in the request.

City Secretary Debra Hagler said that at the March 11 meeting, the council heard a proposal from Cary Stallings about the creation of a disc golf course. Stallings said a course could be a tourism draw, as there are groups in the area that travel to different sites to play the game.

Stallings asked the council to give the blessing of 10-20 acres to create the park; however, Hagler said the city does not have any available land.

Hagler said Stallings will next approach the County Commissioners Court to see if there was any land available.

In other business, the council:

•denied a request from Tammy Russell to abandon a portion of Ross Avenue;

•discussed drainage in the Biddle development on the south end of Bird Avenue;

•tabled a request from Jose Martinez to place a manufactured home at 51 Page Ave. Hagler said the home is a premade home from Amazon, and information is needed to see if the home meets city codes;

•took no action on potholes and resurfacing of Richey Road, but will have the street evaluated for repair;

•approved the reimbursement of sewer fees to Tyler Stowe since he is not connected to the city sewer system but was being charged; and

•approved the waiver of rental fees for at the Community Center for a benefit for Justin Pitrucha.
