August 31, 2012 - City of La Joya

                     Application No. 37326-C

Notice for Publication


The City of La Joya has filed an application to obtain CCN with the Texas Commission on Environmental Quality to provide sewer utility service in Hidalgo County.

The purposed utility service area is located approximately 1.8 miles west of downtown La Joya, Texas and the other proposed utility service area is located approximately 1.2 miles east of downtown La Joya, Texas and is generally bounded on the north by La Joya Lake; on the east by Alex Ave; on the south by approximately 700ft. south of Military Rd., and on the west by approximately 1500ft. west of Patricio Perez Rd.

The total area being requested includes approximately 799.14 acres and 140 current customers.

The proposed amendment affects customers and/or areas located in the following zip code: 78572, 78576

A copy of the proposed service area map is available at 3120 N. Abram Rd., Palmview, TX.

A request for a public hearing must be in writing.  You must state (1) your name, mailing address, and daytime telephone number; (2) the applicant’s name, application number or another recognizable reference to this application; (3) the statement, “I/we request a public hearing”; (4) a brief description of how you or the persons you represent, would be adversely affected by the granting of the application for a CNN which would satisfy your concerns and cause you to withdraw your request for a hearing.

Persons who wish to intervene or comment should write the:

Texas Commission on Environmental Quality
Water Supply Division
Utilities and Districts Section, MC153
P. O. Box 13087
Austin, TX 78711-3087

within thirty (30) days from date of this publication or notice.  A public hearing will be held only if a legally sufficient hearing request is received or if the Commission on its own motion requests a hearing.  Only those individuals who submit a written hearing request to be notified if a hearing is set will receive notice if a hearing is scheduled.

If a public hearing is requested, the Executive Director will not issue the CNN and will forward the application to the State Office of Administrative Hearings (SOAH) for a hearing.  If an evidentiary hearing is held, the SOAH will submit a recommendation to the Commission for final decision.  If an evidentiary hearing is held, it will be a legal proceeding similar to a civil trial in state district court.

If you are a landowner with a tract of land at least 25 acres or more, that is partially or wholly located within the proposed area, you may request to be excluded from the proposed area (or “opt out”) by providing written notice to the Commission within (30) days from the date that notice was provided by applicant.  All request to opt out of the requested service area must include a scaled, general location map and a metes and bounds description of the tract of land.

Persons who meet the requirements to opt out, and wish to request this option should file the required documents with the:

Texas Commission on Environmental Quality
Water Supply Division
Utilities and Districts Section, MC153
P. O. Box 13087
Austin, TX 78711-3087

A copy of the request to opt out of the proposed area must also be sent to the applicant.  Staff may request additional information regarding your request.
