The family hired an engineer who said there are plenty of alternatives to the proposed lift station.
SAN ANTONIO — KENS 5 has learned about a plan by San Antonio Water System to take over land owned by a local business for more than half a century. SAWS wants to build a lift station on private property that belongs to Piedras Negras de Noche restaurant.
The owner, Juan Rodriguez Sr. said the restaurant located on S. Laredo is more than a family-owned restaurant.
“It’s all I’ve been doing since I came out of the service in the service for years in the Navy, in Vietnam,” Rodriguez Sr. said.
The family, as well as supporters, spoke during public comment at the monthly SAWS Board Meeting.
