Cuero City Council met last Monday to discuss a number of items on the agenda.
A presentation was made by Fisher Heck Architects, for final review of plans for the public thoroughfare at 123 East Main, formerly the Carmona Building. Several drawings, including front and back elevations, were shown to the council, as well as details of exterior landscaping. The historic architectural value of the building is to be preserved, while also providing easy access from the back city parking lot to East Main and downtown Cuero. The final drawings were passed, and the project now goes to bids.
Staying with building projects, the council also heard that the 2021 Small Community Park Grant application for state funding has been withdrawn. The application was intended for a state grant to help fund the Downtown Pocket Park at North Esplanade Street and Courthouse Street; however, it was discovered that the state has less money available for these grants, and the council felt that it would be more expensive to apply for the grant than actually proceeding with the construction without it.
