Cuero citizen thanks Lantz Tire

Dear Editor,
 
A big thank you to Lantz Tire. I locked my keys in my car. I called the Sheriff’s Dept. They gave me two numbers to call. One did not answer. The other did not open locked cars. I called a friend and she said to call Lantz. They were there in 20 minutes.
 
It was a Saturday morning also. Thanks again Lantz Tire for coming to my rescue.

Perception or high electricity rates

Dear Editor,
 
I am not one to write letters to the editor. As a matter of fact, I think this is the first one I have ever written in my life. I am writing in response to the letter regarding the electric rates within the City of Cuero. There is a perceived notion that because there is a monopoly on the electrical distribution and power costs within the city that it must be more expensive than anything else out there. That is just not the case.   When comparing what you pay in Cuero to what your friends in Yoakum, Victoria, or San Antonio pay, don’t ask them how much their total bill is. It is virtually impossible to have two identical houses in two different towns to compare.

Dreyer wants better utility prices

Dear Editor,
 
Stop sitting on the couch complaining about the utility bill, wondering how you are going to pay it.
 
A united front is needed to impress the necessity of change to the Council. What are the council members for the City of Cuero (elected by the citizens) willing to do to reduce the utility bills?
 
Something I did not know is that you have to have the approval of three council members before you can be on the agenda for the Council meetings.
 
The City of Cuero has signed a 25 year contract with LCRA. Who signs 25 year contracts? There must be alternative options so the citizens of Cuero can afford to live here. If you check the surrounding towns, their utility bills are not nearly what the average homeowner pays in Cuero.

'You shall reap what you sow'

Dear Editor,
This message is for the public on behalf of the Outreach for Souls Church, 702 E. Broadway Street. Our church and church grounds are dedicated for Godly worship. Please stop littering on God’s property. These outrageous acts of disrespect are not pleasing in the sight of God. Remember, you shall reap what you sow, whether good or evil.
Sincerely,
Outreach for Souls Church

Traffic issues studied

Dear Editor,

The City of Yorktown, along with the Yorktown Police Department, are conducting a traffic study. The purpose of this study is to identify traffic issues on residential streets and to ensure the local residents are safe.

There have been several complaints since the influx of oil field traffic. The current configuration of the city streets was not designed to handle the amount of traffic that is experienced today.

Over the last year or so, the City of Yorktown has invested a lot of tax payer money in new streets. When the traffic study is complete, the results will be reviewed by city leaders and the appropriate actions will be taken. Some of the possible changes to accomplish this may be lowering the speed limit on our residential streets, adding stop signs, and possibly changing some yield signs to stop signs.

Ruiz against privatizing garbage service

Dear Editor,
 
To the citizens of Cuero. We must not let the city privatize our garbage pick-up service. 
 
I learned early in 1990 while attending a meeting in Gonzales on trash burning systems, the Chamber manager asked me if we still haul our own garbage: I said yes we do.
 
You should hold on to that. Don’t do what we did. We turned over our garbage service over to Garbage Gobbler, and we have dreaded it ever since.
