City organizations see benefits of bats

 

Bats often have a bad reputation of being scary, stinky, dirty and nasty and often times face poisoning, roost destruction, and habitat loss.
 
However, the City of Cuero, Keep Cuero Beautiful, Chamber of Commerce, and Cuero Main Street recognize the importance that bats are a vital part of the ecosystem. They simply agree that the bats do not belong downtown.  
 
Mayor Sara Meyer said, “I’d like to see the bats relocated to remove health concerns for those working or shopping in the downtown historic district on Main Street.”

The late Raymond Navarro’s vision for the project led to its construction this year by his grandson, Russell Oritz. Navarro was an active parishioner who expressed his wish to construct a locomotive for the youth of the Jamaica to his grandson before his passing. As a tribute to Navarro’s memory, Ortiz decided to carry his grandfather’s vision and named the locomotive, “Popo Loco,” after his grandfather.
