Business owners asked to help keep city clean

 

According to City of Cuero building official Robert Stoddard, business owners are asked to make sure the trash on their property is picked up.
 
“If a customer walks outside with a bag and throws the bag on the ground, once the bag is on the ground, it becomes the responsibility of the business,” Stoddard said.
 
Trash is a problem, Stoddard said, because it blows into the streets and onto other properties.
 
“A recent example — we found trash from a restaurant blow four blocks away onto someone’s yard,” Stoddard said. “We want [business owners] to work with the city to create a cleaner Cuero.”
 
The city offers several methods of collection services. For more info, contact environmental waste superintendent Cheryl Merzbacher at 361-275-6266.

CDC deliberates sale of building

The Cuero Development Corporation held a regular meeting on July 21. With a full agenda the public was primarily interested in the deliberation of the sale of 11.89 acre tract of land close to Pebble Ridge Estates and the sale of a 35,000 square foot building and the land of 3.948 acres it sits on.
 
Lillian Smith, vice president of Turnquist Partners Realtors and realtor agent for Geo Southern Holding said, “[Geo Southern Holding] is extremely interested. We presented to the board (via email on July 21) an offer of $675,000. That is $450,000 for the building and $225,000 for the land.”
 
During a special CDC meeting held on July 7, a motion was made by Shay Iacoponelli, seconded by Richard Weber, to accept an offer from Geo Southern Holding, contingent on earnest money, a contract for the 35,000 square foot building and property for $625,000. The board voted unanimously for it.

County looks at holding tax rate

Although about a month remains before DeWitt County Commissioners Court adopts its tax rate and budget for the new budget year, the court is previewing what it will do.
 
In meetings last week and Monday, the court showed what the county can expect in tax revenue and estimated what the tax rate will be.
 
Preliminary discussions indicate the county will keep the same tax rate it has used for this year.
 
Reviewing the process at last week’s meeting, County Judge Daryl Fowler said the net taxable values in this county continues to grow. He said in 2013 the net values totalled $5.5 billion and the current year’s total is $7.1 billion, an increase of $1.6 billion.

Burn ban, budget plans top county discussions

 

Budget talks continue for the county and there was no action on a burn ban at Monday’s commissioner’s court meeting.
 
Although the heat index continues to rise, commissioners delayed taking any action on a rural burn ban. Each indicated there has not been any requests from residents or fire departments to adopt a burn ban at this time.
 
With about a month remaining before the county adopts its new budget, the court heard more discussions on the proposed document.
 
Sheriff Jode Zavesky reported his office continues to lose deputies and jailers. He said an informal survey of area counties indicates some are paying signing bonuses and/or stipends.
