• Community Recognition

    Dear Citizens,

    For those of you who were unable to attend last night’s City Council meeting (or watch on TV), we handed out some very nice recognition to several special people in our community.

    The local Cub Scouts and Boy Scouts were recognized for their work in helping keeping our creeks clean of trash during our Keep Texas Beautiful day in April.


    Mr. Zeke Contreras was recognized by the City or his award from Keep Texas Beautiful for encouraging and demonstrating efforts to promote the KTB mission through environmental education.


    And our local High School Fighting Buck Baseball squad and their coaches were recognized for their accomplishments during the playoffs this year.  They were one series away from advancing to the State Final Four and did that with a relatively young squad.


    It’s so nice to see the recognition of our community members who work so hard to make our City great.  Have a super week and remember to congratulate these folks on their contribution to our community.

  • Free Mulch

    Dear Citizens,

    We’ve had some recent questions regarding brush/limb drop-off and acquisition of free mulch from our Hal Flanders Recycle Center.

    Here are some bullet points to help answer those questions:

    • The City has recently received a $9221 grant from our Rio Grande Council of Government Solid Waste Advisory Committee (SWAC Grant) to pick up brush around the City and mulch the materials for City resident usage.
    • The City has hired a vendor to pick up the brush adjacent to dumpsters and parkways throughout the City.  They will be picking up that brush through next Friday (June 17th).
    • We have re-opened the Recycle Center for resident brush and limb drop off.  The hours that we are open for drop off are 8a-12p Tuesday through Saturday.
    • We currently have a lot of mulch already at the Recycle Center and you can pick that up between 8a-12p Tuesday through Saturday.  That mulch was made last year and is still available at no charge.
    • Between June 20th and July 15th, we will have a ‘tub-grinder’ mobilized to Alpine and mulch all the new brush and limbs at the Recycle Center.   This is part of the SWAC Grant.
    • After completion of the mulching, we will have even more for folks to utilize across the City.  I do anticipate Patsy McWilliams and our Keep Alpine Beautiful Team to come up with some sort of contest on mulching usage in the City.

    Thank you for the questions.  If I was unable to answer them all, or you have additional questions, please call me at City Hall.

    Thank you and have a wonderful day in Alpine,

    Erik Zimmer, City Manager

  • Texas-Pacifico City Council Presentation

    Dear Citizens,

    At last evenings City Council meeting we had Elizabeth Grindstaff from Texas-Pacifico present to the Council and Community the recent activity and usage of their rail line traversing through Alpine.

    Here is a copy of their presentation along with her contact information.  We appreciate Liz and Fernan making the trip to Alpine to share this important messaging.  If you have any further questions, please do not hesitate in calling my office or reaching out to them directly.

    Have a great day!

    Erik Zimmer, City Manager
