From the archives of The Daily News for Feb. 13:

In 1914, Galveston commissioners approved a payment of about $35,000 for property at 11th Street and Avenue A that was to become the future site of the municipal incinerator. Commissioners also gave the go-ahead for continued inspection of island buildings by the Dilapidated Buildings Committee.

In 1964, the Galveston City Council delayed by a week opening bids for building a hotel on the Galveston Pleasure Pier as to allow for more bidders. Bids were asked for the construction of a six- or-seven-story hotel with 200 to 240 rooms and a floor area of about 100,000 to 120,00 square feet.

In 1989, the Galveston Seawall Association, a group comprised of about 75 percent of the businesses along the Galveston Seawall, were rallying to stop the city from banning parking on the south side of the seawall.
