1928
Abandonment of Mitchell Lake as a unit in the sewage disposal system and the erection of a sludge type sewage disposal plant today seemed to be the solution to the city's sewer problem

1938
San Antonio's zoning ordinance, 13 months in the making, was given the City Council's approval today. San Antonio and Houston are the only two major cities in the U.S. without a zoning ordinance.
