Under the dome of the new recessed ceiling with shiny new lights, Yorktown Mayor Rene Hernandez welcomed a nice gathering at the open house event at the newly refurbished Yorktown City Hall at the corner of S. Riedel and Main on Sunday afternoon.
Hernandez said “It’s been eight years” since the city moved out of the building in 2006, “There’s been a lot of sleepless nights. It’s very fulfilling to be moving back into our home.” Hernandez thanked the city council members for their support of their project. “I also praise God for His help,” he said, “Business will resume at 8 a.m.” at the impressively-remodeled facility.
Hernandez, Yorktown City Secretary Robert Mendez and Councilmen Jerry Alvarez, Ruben “BB” Garcia, Larry Mueller, and Councilwomen Frances Villa and Shawna Lamprecht took their places at their council seats under the State of Texas/City of Yorktown seal in the council chamber. The newly tiled floor and polished wood gleamed in the afternoon lighting, which was shaded by new wooden blinds.
