Hello everyone! I thought it worthwhile to let everyone know about some work that has been going on. Robert Gomez, one of our neighbors, is a pump installer/maintainer with Lonestar Pump in Fredericksburg and has responded to several Friday and weekend problems we have had in the past. For emergencies, Robert’s number is (830) 998-7807 or (830) 428-8761.
A few weeks ago Robert had to come over again and in a conversation he told me about Cypress Creek Drilling near Comfort. Charlie Weygand, the owner, offered us some very good rates since we were doing several wells. My son, my daughter and I all needed wells bored, and by the time we finished this week five other Alamo Springs folks have drilled with two more to go. If you are interested you can Contact Charlie at 830 995-3001.
At the same time we needed to put in a new septic system. Rocky Simpson did the work for us on Oak Road and is also putting one in this week for my son on Deer Road. Rocky also put in a driveway for us – surfaced with crushed limestone road base and did an outstanding job inexpensively. He also used his big tractor/backhoe dig a 6x6x6 hole for a “jogging” pool and to level some ground that we were unable to do with a normal bucket tractor. His prices beat all other estimates I had for the work. He will be on the ranch with his equipment the rest of this week if you need some driveway or larger than “normal” work done. Rocky’s number is 830 385-6374.
Finally I have a number of yellow Community Watch signs available and will be happy to give them to anyone who wants one. I feel that it will work best if you put the sign where you would like it to be instead of my going around and doing it. I have put up a number of them already on Oak Road, the end of Deer Road, and the end of Alamo Road. Please give me a call if you would like one.
I am also having some larger custom made metal signs made that have “Alamo Springs Ranch” on them. They cost $20 and for anyone who wants one of those we’ll be happy to pay $5 out of some of the money that has been contributed.
My best regards to all,
