Council grants residency variance to administrator

By Carolyn B. Edwards BCC Staff Writer

Bandera City Council, meeting in special session Wednesday morning, Oct. 22, voted to grant a variance on the residence requirement for City Administrator Lamar Schulz.
The city of Bandera requires that its administrator live in city limits. Schulz advised the council that he thought he could meet the requirement within three months, which was granted by unanimous vote of the council.
There was one item on the consent agenda, which was apparently a housekeeping matter advised by the city attorney. Mayor Don Clark intimated the attorney had advised the council had not properly completed the vote on the matter regarding the resignation of City Utilities Director Mike Cardenas and his employment by the city as a consultant until he reaches his official retirement date next Spring. The vote Wednesday was unanimous.
The council also approved the appointment of Will Dietrich as Interim City Marshall and set his salary at $46,760. Both his service as interim and the salary are slated to be re-evaluated in six month. Dietrich's new role was effective immediately.
Present for the meeting were Councilmen Jim Hannah, Suzanne Scharman, and Glen Clark, and Mayor Don Clark. Councilman John Hegemeier was absent.
