Pleasanton city council approves Lone Oak Subdivision plat
The Pleasanton City Council voted 5-2 to approve the plat presented for the Lone Oak Subdivision, at the July 19 council meeting. Voting against were Councilmen Roger G. Garza (Dist. 5) and Jimmy Magel (Dist. 1).
City Engineer John Metting said the engineer added culverts to the road and the plat was revised to include drainage easements where they needed to have them. So Metting recommended that the plat be approved.
Councilman Magel said he was under the impression that all of the drainage was going to go under Oakhaven and come through. He learned part of the drainage is going to go down the master drainway.
Despite the study done, Magel said, he was still concerned about possible flooding and drainage problems down the road.
“I really have a problem with this,” said Magel. “It’s been a problem in years past.”
