slander and defamation of character

The Yellow Store is another business here in San Marcos that seems to treat it's employee's like cold turds.

Atleast that's what I heard through the grapevine.

I don't really know the details, and don't really care, I just wanted to join in the Slandering and Defamating.

It was fun, what local business is next???

I stop by every day. If you've got something else you'd rather talk about, I'm all for it.

How about we talk about the recent parking enforcement on the square? It seems that if you park in the spaces adjacent to the old courthouse, you get a ticket, period. No time limit, no nothing. The parking is supposed to be for county business only, but even people on county business are getting ticketed. If you're parked there when they are writing tickets, you get one. That's about the extent of the system, as I understand it.

There is a movement to try to reduce LBJ and Guadalupe to two lanes, in order to add a handful of parking spaces. I wonder if the two are related somehow.

When the fire department moves out of their building (behind Tap Room), there are plans to build a garage there. This is probably a few years out, as I do not believe the details have been sorted out for moving the firehouse yet.

The question then becomes, what will traffic on and around the square be like if LBJ and Guadalupe are reduced to two lanes and parking is added on Guadalupe, in addition to this parking garage?

Parking garage downtown

It has not been approved by the City yet. They are currently "studying the need".

Studying the need for a new fire department, a parking garage, or reduced lanes on LBJ and Guadalupe?

I've heard the Yellow Store doesn't stand by their employees at all. Heard some bad stories directly not through the grapevine. I refuse to go there.

Studying the need

Sorry, they are studying the need for a new parking garage. You should take the Downtown Master Plan survey here, and let them know what you think about the parking, lanes and so forth.
