An interlocal agreement between Guadalupe County and the city of Cibolo for the participation in the reconstruction of Bolton Road, Dean Road and Lower Seguin Road was approved Jan. 30.

The details

This agenda item was put forth by the city of Cibolo to request county funding for the sections of the roads that fall under the county’s jurisdiction. The total amount requested from the county was $1,147,755.

Within this agreement, the city of Cibolo would annex the county portions of the roads following the reconstruction effort, meaning they would be the city’s responsibility going forward.

What they’re saying

While the members of Commissioners Court were in favor of the interlocal agreement, Judge Kyle Kutscher raised concern about the agenda item coming to the court outside of the budget cycle.

To help alleviate some of the concern, the agenda item was passed with an amendment that the county could pay the total amount over the course of multiple payments rather than allocating the entire $1.1 million in the upcoming budget.

“I support the effort, and I support what y’all are trying to do. It just creates a tremendous amount of challenges and tension for us outside of our normal process,” Kutscher said.

What residents should know

Work on Bolton Road and Dean Road began Jan. 29 with the expectation that the first phase of these two road projects would be completed in late March.

City Manager Wayne Reed said the total project timeline is expected to take 300 days. Information on the construction of the roads can be found here.
