Citizens’ park watch group considered

At the August 21 Pleasanton City Council meeting, Councilmember Jeanne B. Israel asked to have a sign-up sheet and a flyer explaining the duties and criteria needed for a Citizen’s Park Watch Group at the annual National Night Out which will be held Tuesday, October 7 at the Atascosa River Park.

Councilmember J.R. Gallegos, agreeing that it was a good idea, expressed his concerns on the volunteers that may be interested in signing up – especially if these members would think of themselves as above the law.

Mayor Clint Powell understands that Chief Ronald Sanchez would explain the responsibilities to the volunteers and training (3-6 weeks) would be given, too.

The motion passed with all voting for it.
