Once again, the City is look- ing for a City Secretary. Several years ago the pay was upped from $25/month to $50/month. The primary responsibilities• are the minutes of the monthly city council meetings and posting the council agenda the weekend before the council meeting. Contact Jim Herrmann, if you're interested. Other news from Tuesday night's council meeting includes taxes, road improvements and animal control. There.wl be no increase in the rate of the city tax this year. Soon the streets of the entire city will be repaved with black- top (not "chip seal"). The City had planned to do one-third of the streets at a time, but got such a deal that they'll all be done in the next month or two. The work is being paid for with money that has been saved for this purpose for years. Please don't park on the street during the time of the resurfacing. Please be aware that you could be delayed a half hour or so in getting out of your driveway when your street is repaved. The blacktop will be safe to drive on immediately. This work is needed now before the road structure is dam- aged to such a point that the streets would have to be torn up and completely replaced. The city council will not get into animal control because the interlocal agreement the city has with the county would be inval- idated if the city set up its own set of rules. The "Fourth Amended Hays County Animal Control Ordinance" has provisions that prohibit animals from being a public nuisance. Animals are not permitted to molest or intim- idate pedestrians or passersby; chase vehicles or bicycles; or make unprovoked disturbing noises. Required restraint may be accomplished by tying the ani- mal in a way to prevent the ani- mal from leaving the owner's premises and from being within ten feet of a public right-of-way. An animal may also be totally enclosed in a fence (wireless fences are not considered a means of restraint); or, the pet may be accompanied by a responsible person who is able to control it on a leash. The document is 14 pages long, so this Only hits some highlights. To report a violation, contact the Sheriff's office. Most would agree that the neighborly thing to do is to talk with the owner of the animal. Happy 1st Birthday to The Fellowship at Plum Creek (www.plumcreekchurch.org) which meets at The Rocking Horse Academy. The young church recently added a sec- ond worship service (now 9:00 a.m. and 11:00 a.m.), and the attendance has reached close to 250. Please provide birthdays, anniversaries and other tidbits to Montage. Phone 268-5678 or e- mail backporch@ austin.rr.com. embers and visitors of St. John United Church were greeted Sunday morning by a beautiful concrete parking lot.

More than 50% of summer water use in a single family home occurs outdoors. To impact water bills next summer, reduce your landsca. 's thirst by reducing grassy areas and creating bigger and mulched beds with native plants.
