City of Cuero offering paddle boat rental

 

   Those looking for something to do this summer can stop by the city park for a new activity. The City of Cuero recently purchased paddle boats for use on the Cuero lake.
   “We’re trying to bring people to our park,” said David Danish, parks superintendent. “Not too many cities have paddle boats, so I think it’s intriguing to people and hopefully they come enjoy the park and see more of it.”
   Danish said the interest in the paddle boats has slowly piqued.
   “More rentals are being made during the weekends. Last weekend it was rented six different times, which is good because the most it had been rented was three different times. So I think it’s doing better and better.”

City leaders identify strengths, weaknesses

  There was a team in operation in the Citizens Bank Community Room recently, but they weren’t decked out in tactical gear.  And even though this group was into strategic planning, they weren’t jumping out of the back of an armored truck.  This wasn’t another episode of “S.W.A.T.” – the popular TV series from the 1970’s –  this was a meeting of the Yorktown S.W.O.T. team.

   Headed up by Alan Rasco, executive director of the Yorktown Chamber of Commerce and Yorktown Economic Development Corporation, and Amy Lamprecht, president of the Yorktown Chamber of Commerce,  Yorktown’s SWOT team consisted of approximately 30 citizens – ranging from city managers to business owners to city residents – who attended the meeting and were interested in providing input on the community’s strengths, weaknesses, opportunities and threats.
