Executive Director, Cuero Development Corporation
I’m frequently asked what the Cuero Development Corporation does and where do we get our money. Simply put, the voters of the City approved, in the mid-1990’s, ½ cent of the sales tax remittance to be utilized for economic development. Our mission statement is to promote, develop, and enhance economic and community development. The seven (7) member board is appointed, and serves at the pleasure of the City Council.
All members are appointed for a two (2) year term and must meet residency requirements.
Presently, the Board of Directors are: Charles Papacek, President; Dennis Jemelka, Vice President; Will Carbonara, Secretary/Treasurer; Randy Jochim, Sara Post-Meyer, Mike Weaver and Richard Weber.
