Citizens speak on proposed annexations

By Glenn Rea
The Cuero Record
 
A public hearing on a proposed annexation drew considerable criticism last week at Cuero City Council meeting.
 
The city had posted a map of about 123 acres south of the city along Hwy. 183. The eastern portion of the area is primarily residential and the area along the highway is primarily commercial.
 
Six people who live or have businesses in the area voiced opposition to the idea and a petition was submitted to council containing the names of 25 people from that area.
 
Carlos Gottschalt was the first to speak. He said the services Cuero said it will provide to residents, if the annexed, are not needed.
 
“We have water, we have sewer and the sheriff’s department comes out there for what we need,” he said.

Cuero Community Hospital delays vote on administrative services agreement with Methodist Healthcare System

By Glenn Rea
The Cuero Record
 
Cuero Community Hospital has delayed its vote on an administrative services agreement with Methodist Healthcare System in San Antonio.
 
At its board meeting Oct. 27, the board indicated additional information will be needed from Methodist Healthcare and from CCH attorneys before a decision can be made.
 
One of the items still to be determined concerns a contract CCH has with a bulk purchasing company now. The board wants to know whether the hospital can end that contract or whether it has to honor it.
 
At an informational meeting in October, the board indicated one of the key components of the proposed agreements with Methodist Healthcare was its bulk purchasing ability. It was stated at that meeting, an agreement with Methodist Healthcare could result in between $200,000 and $300,000 in savings for CCH.
