KYLE — Hays County Precinct 2 Commissioner Jeff Barton (D-Kyle) received next to a hero’s welcome Tuesday night in the Kyle city council chambers, where the city’s legislators passed a resolution in favor of pursuing a new pass-through road financing proposal between the county and the state.
Kyle councilmembers sat spellbound and entranced as Barton told the exciting story of one-way access roads along Interstate 35, as well as a re-alignment of SH 150 to the east, which would take motorists directly from the interstate to the main highway through the city’s southeastern section.
“Why would anyone be against this?” Kyle Mayor Mike Gonzalez asked.
Said Barton, “In the interest of decorum, I should not answer that question.”Email | Print
