Help name a Cuero street

You can help City of Cuero name a street.
 
In last week’s meeting, city council agreed to hold a contest to name a street here. 
 
The street is about one block long and is located between the GVEC Home store and the Benavidez Memorial across from Cuero High School. Currently the street has no name. It connects East Broadway and Courthouse Street.
 
Councilman Bill Matthys suggested a contest to name the street. He said people should submit their suggestions online, send them to the newspaper or by written nomination through the mail.
 
It was suggested the council would pick their top three choices and allow the public to vote for their favorite.
 
Nominations would be accepted for the next 45 days.
