Updates from SAFFE Officer Brigitte Robinson (Neumann):
Hope you all are dong well. I just wanted to give you all the updated data for this past week’s directive patrol. I know there is a lot frustration and concern, but know that we are working towards making more progress. Directive patrol, specifically, for the St. Mary’s Strip including the side streets has been in effective for over a month. DWI, vice, and TABC are all aware of the issues and have been working on citations for any/all violations. The sanitary management for the city has also been included for inspections on the food trucks. I’ve been in contact with a few residents and assist on explaining the severity and concerns they have to both the chiefs office and district 1. After speaking with one of the residents today my next steps are to include the fire marshals and the historic association. If there are any other recommendations I am all for ideas. I’m trying to involve every agency and contact that I believe can help push more positive outcomes.
Tobin Hill stretches out towards Main as well and I don’t want you to think that I just focus on the strip. I’ve also been working with TXDOT for providing outreach to the homeless and cleanups. From what I was told Luby’s is staying in busy at least the location on Main. It’s been a long time coming, but the bus stop on Elmira will finally be knocked down. It been a process going through VIA to Luby’s to getting assistance with TX DOT. The Motel across the street has also been being worked on. I was told be the owners they are in the process of possibly selling the property to Budget Lodge that would remodel the whole property. The old Lulu’s is also in the process of being rented out to a chef from California whos opening up a hot dog themed restaurant.
As for the shooting that recently occurred I do not have information I can provide at this time, but as soon as I can I will relay all the details. Please let me know if you have any questions or concerns. Thank you all for your time.
