Sierra Industries downsizing

 
 
 
by Craig Garnett, publisher
The company that lifted Garner Field Airport from a sleepy runway flanked by a handful of small businesses to a thriving aircraft modification, repair and refurbishment destination is being downsized after 30 years.
 
According to Sierra Industries founder Mark Huffstutler, his partner of 18 months decided recently to consolidate Uvalde operations with a facility in St. Genevieve, Missouri.
 
“In a short period of time we went from what I thought were methodical discussions about how to best consolidate business operations to a significant downsizing in Uvalde,” Huffstutler said of the decision that was announced the morning of Sept. 30 to Sierra employees in Uvalde.

Signs, bags may be installed at parks to combat animal waste

 
 
 
 
Animal excrement in city-owned parks, particularly at the Memorial and De Leon parks, was a topic of discussion Sept. 27 when Uvalde City Council members met for a regularly scheduled meeting at city hall.
 
Councilman Steve Balke said he has received multiple complaints from city residents regarding animal excrement at the East Main and Silvestre Street parks.
 
As a solution, Susan Anderson, director of community planning, suggested placing signage at the parks reminding owners to clean up after their animals.
 
Council members also suggested placing plastic bags and waste buckets near the signage.
 
The signs were priced at $170 a sign and plastic bags would run .20 cents each.
