On Jun. 3, the City of Dripping Springs put a stop work order on a portion of the Mark Black wedding venue, which is being built at 130 W. Concord Circle in Driftwood. The stop order was issued by a city inspector after he and a city engineer determined “the work being done did not match the approved site plan,” during a visit to the property.

I visited the site at Mark Black Wedding Venue yesterday afternoon. I arrived shortly after James Slone of TCEQ had left. TCEQ has put a stop to the dewatering of the foundation excavation which was leading to sediment leaving the site. The contractor is to submit a dewatering plan to TCEQ and it must be approved by TCEQ before any dewatering can continue. TCEQ will also be requiring the contractor to clean up the creek. I am not sure what the schedule is for that cleanup. For that information you will need to contact TCEQ.
If you have any other questions regarding this matter please feel free to email or call me at City Hall 512-858-4725.
Please understand that any citizen complaints must be directed through City Hall via email or phone so records can be kept.
