New East Side road, sidewalks, curbs torn up after miscommunication between Public Works, SAWS
The Public Works Department and San Antonio Water System have given conflicting timelines on why a $972,000 road repair project in an east San Antonio neighborhood was interrupted earlier this year to make way for the installation of a new water main.
Program to help struggling San Antonio families still flush with cash
SAN ANTONIO – A program to help residents who are struggling because of the pandemic pay their rent and other bills still has tens of millions of dollars to dole out. The Emergency Housing Assistance Program (EHAP) has received a total of $133.6 million in chunks over the past year from various funding sources. That’s before any additional rent assistance money from a stimulus bill passed by Congress is added to the mix. Bexar County residents appear only to be eligible for rental assistance, while city residents can also get help with water, power and internet service. However, they won’t be able to get assistance for the same period of time for which they already got help.
