Council District 9 Initiatives

Our Councilman, John Courage, and his Staff are working on several initiatives that affect us here in NCTONA. These include action on Participatory Budgeting, stiffening local penalties on criminals who break into local mailboxes or steal parcels, consideration of the “T-21 Initiative” and moving forward on a City “Homestead Exemption” similar to these provisions for rural areas of Texas.

Where Is This NCTONA Neighbor?

Check out where this NCTONA neighbor went recently - the Panama Canal! Next time you go somewhere, take a picture of yourself with your NCTONA Notes and we'll post it on the website and maybe even in the newsletter! Dick and his wife Sue had a great time, and brought their NCTONA Notes to read, but totally forgot to take a picture with them.  So, Ok, the photo is edited a bit (no way - it looks perfect!).  It's the thought that counts!


Are You Ready For Any Emergency?

Many of our neighborhood residents heard Autumn Lotze, a disaster resilience and recovery specialist, speak on emergency preparedness at the November 2016 General Meeting. The resources she talked about, which include a checklist for home owners and business owners as well as a link to San Antonio area resources, can be found at:

Did You Know?

On April 30, 2015, the San Antonio City Council unanimously approved the elimination of the City's pet licensing program. An ordinance amendment was approved making a registered microchip the primary means of licensing for pets living within the San Antonio city limits. Residents do not have to formally register their pet's microchip with the City or ACS - microchips only need to be registered with the microchip manufacturer.

Recycle Plastic Bags!

Beginning August 1, 2014, San Antonio residents who receive recycling and garbage service from the Solid Waste Management Department will be able to recycle plastic bags in their blue recycling cart. Simply bundle the bags, make sure the bags are free of paper and receipts and that they are completely dry before placing the bags inside your main bag. Then tie the handles securely (See photo).
