Universal City Police Department

Universal City Police Department

Have you heard of "Bank Jugging" or "Jugging"? A "jugging" is when an offender sits at a bank and watches for patrons to leave with money bags, or what they believe may be money bags, cashed checks, etc.

The offender will follow the victim from the bank to the victim's next destination. This could be home, the grocery store, etc. After the victim stops and leaves the vehicle, the offender will break a window to get into the vehicle and search for, and often steal, the money just picked up from the bank.

In the past couple of months we have had 2 incidents of "jugging" here in Universal City.

Please be mindful of where you are, if anyone is following you, don't leave the money (or any valuables) in the vehicle, and call police if you suspect you are being followed. Even better, call police and then drive to the PD. If the offender does follow you, they will probably not stop at the PD!

Be alert! Stay safe!!

11/18/2020

The following items were mentioned under the City Manager’s Report at the November 17th City Council meeting:

Texas Demographer: City population from the 2010 Census is 18,530; City projected population as of January 2020 is 22,058 according to the Texas State Demographer. Anticipated growth of 3,528 residents over a ten-year period.

Cares Relief Funds: Monies provided to Universal City for CARES Relief Funds were used for Small Businesses Stimulus Grants $500,000; Household Stabilization Program (86 families) $150,000; Facility Modification $149,500; Technology $125,000; and COVID-19 Personal Protective Equipment (PPE) and Compliance with regulations $226,888.

Library: Curbside service continues; Thursdays from 2:00 PM to 7:00 pm library open for book browsing and check-out, and computer use. Computer use requires a reservation by calling 210-659-7048. Mask and occupancy regulations are in effect.

Fire Department Pancake Breakfast: COVID cautious, the annual event has been cancelled. Residents may see an advertisement indicating the event will take place. However, the decision has been made to cancel the event until next year.

Christmas Tree Lighting: Greatly modified tree lighting ceremony on Tuesday, 01 December from 6:00 to 8:00 PM.

Mobile Food Pantry: New Life Fellowship Church is the local host. Project is a partnership between House of Mercy and the San Antonio Food Bank. Dates are November 23rd and December 21st from 10:00AM to 3:00 PM. Register at www.SAFoodBank.org.

Aviation Revitalization Golden Nuggets—The City recently had a consulting firm look at the Aviation District of the City to determine the best approach to redeveloping the residential and commercial area. A lot of interesting information about the City came out of the final report. To share this information with everyone, bits of the data will periodically be shared with residents. The City will also consider the data when developing strategies for redevelopment.

Recent Growth: Approaching Buildout—As build-out approaches, Universal City’s growth will slow unless strategies to support infill redevelopment at higher densities are pursued. The City’s older stock of apartments was of great concern to the consultants.

Older Housing Stock—Reflective of an older community approaching buildout, a majority of the existing commercial and residential real estate in Universal City is older than the neighboring communities. For example, about 50% of Universal City’s housing stock was built before 1978. Further, median gross rent for apartments is $927 per month which is less than the San Antonio MSA and the US average, and well below the median rent in Live Oak.

Age-In-Place—Many people in the City had modest concerns about the availability of more diverse housing options, particularly so aging adults can remain and age-in-place within Universal City.

The following items were mentioned under the City Manager’s Report at the October 20th City Council meeting:

November 3rd Election: Election lines are long at the Universal City Library, but the lines move quickly. Voters have been doing an excellent job of complying with COVID-19 regulations. Online discussion regarding City’s proposition to sell 32 acres of parkland has been lively and robust. Early voting by personal appearance will continues through Friday, October 30, 2020.

Sales Tax: Sales tax for August 2020 was up 10% percent over August 2019. This is a good indication that some businesses are rebounding after the shutdowns brought about by COVID-19.

Pumpkin Patch: The Patch is open until 31 October--Tuesday thru Thursday 3PM-7PM; Friday thru Sunday 11AM-7PM; closed on Monday and inclement weather days. Pumpkin supplies are short at retail stores this year. Therefore, Pumpkin Patches in the area are well attended by the community.

Water Department: The Water Department at City Hall has adjusted its hours to provide better service to the residents and businesses of Universal City. Starting on 19 October, the Water Department is open from 7:00 AM to 6:00 PM, Monday thru Friday.

Don't forget to vote on ☑️Preposition A on the November 2020 ballot.
FOR/AGAINST: Selling approximately thirty-two (32) acres of parkland located near the intersection of Kitty Hawk and Universal City Blvd with the proceeds from the sale to be used to purchase or improve parkland elsewhere in the City.

🤔What are the anticipated proceeds from the sale of the park land?
By law, a City is required to conduct a market valuation of property prior to it being sold. The market valuation will not be conducted until after the November 2020 election. The proceeds from the sale will be used to purchase or improve park land elsewhere within the City limits.

🎡What is the impact on existing parks and park land?
None. Proceeds from the sale of the 32-acres would be used to make improvements to existing parks or to purchase more parkland elsewhere in the City.

🌳How much parkland does the City have?
Including the 32-acre tract, the City has approximately 152 acres of parkland and another 14 acres soon to be dedicated to the City.

The following items are to be mentioned under the City Manager’s Report at the October 6th City Council meeting:

1. Library/Northview Park Fence—work is complete on the iron fence where the property line adjoins the businesses. Benches being added outside the library so people can sit and use the free wi-fi access.

2. Water Tank Rehabilitation-Utilities Division has been sandblasting, cleaning, and painting the elevated water tanks on Pat Booker and Centerbrook and the standpipe on Pat Booker. These tanks are a source of pressurized drinking water for the community. Routine inspection and cleaning are key to preventing corrosion and sediment build-up in water storage tanks to make them last longer.

3. Household Stabilization Funds: Both GRASP and RACAP are continuing to assist Universal City residents with rent, mortgage, utility, and food funding. The program expires on 15 October. Universal City residents that have been financially impacted by COVID-19 are encouraged to contact these agencies.

4. Fall Clean-Up: October 16th thru Oct 25th. Excellent opportunity to rid households of unused or unwanted items that cannot be put in the regular trash.

5. E. Lindbergh Demolition Project: It has been nearly four years since the Department of Defense (DOD) bought the seven homes on E. Lindbergh. All the required contracts with the government have been signed. The City will demolish the structures and get reimbursed by the DOD. Neighbors adjoining the properties have been notified that demolition will start in a few days.

6. November 3rd Election: Universal City Proposition will be on the last page of the ballot. Voters are being asked to authorize the sale of approximately thirty-two (32) acres of parkland located near the intersection of Kitty Hawk and Universal City Blvd with the proceeds from the sale to be used to purchase or improve parkland elsewhere in the City. Early voting by personal appearance will begin on Tuesday, October 13, 2020, and continue through Friday, October 30, 2020.

7. The Universal City Pumpkin Patch will open on Saturday, October 10 with proceeds benefiting the Universal City Fire Department.

A very friendly male (neutered)tabby with white socks is hanging out on my screened porch. He has a collar and if you can describe it to me, I will release him to you. He will go to the shelter if no one claims him. I cannot keep him. I am near Kitty Hawk and Sunrise Canyon.

I have a question about an abandon house on my street. It appears that who ever lived there just left. The garage door is open about 6 inches and has been for quite some time now, so me and the neighbors wonder what might be living there. The lawn is over grown and the tree in the front yard is hanging on the sidewalk. There is an American flag on the balcony that is dirty and twisted. If no one is living there or the place is abandoned I'd like to know what you guys can do so maybe we can at least lock up the place better and maybe straighten up the area.
