Open carry at city hall and street closing discussed at City Council

By Glenn Rea
The Cuero Record
 
Cuero City Council covered a broad range of topics at their monthly meeting Tuesday, Jan. 26. From open carry of firearms at city hall to a dispute over closing a dead-end street.
 
Neighbors along the end of the 400 block of West Prairie Street are asking the city to close the end of that street. However, the landowner of the property at that dead-end is against closing the street.
 
Dr. Koby Reitz owns property on both sides of Prairie Street near the dead-end. He and his wife along with two other home owners in the 400 block are asking the city to close  the street to prevent through traffic.
 
Sid Duderdstadt said he has purchased one of the lots at the end of Prairie Street and his mother owns the land just beyond the end of Prairie Street.

Toddler story time at Cuero Library

Ms. Shannon began Toddler Story Time with a song to greet all the library friend and read a book entitled “Snowman.”
 
The children danced and shook their sillies out to several songs and rhymes that required eye and hand coordination. She then asked the children to sit down to read one more story entitled “The Biggest, Best, Snowman” and rounded it off with a familiar rhyme (5 Little Monkeys) about snowmen falling off a sled.
 
The children sang two more songs and then settled down to do a craft project, in which, they created melted snowmen pictures.
 
If you have children who are not school age yet, please consider bringing them to Toddler Story Time at the library on Mondays from 10-11 a.m.
 
Miss Shannon is wonderful. The children learn and have a good time, plus they are able to interact with one another and make friends. They hope to see you there.

City manager discusses McDonald's sign

By Glenn Rea
The Cuero Record
 
Cuero City Council was asked at its meeting Jan. 26 to reconsider actions that allowed McDonald’s restaurant to keep its tall sign at the intersection of Esplanade and Broadway. 
 
The restaurant opened in a new location about six months ago but continues to maintain its previous location as a parking lot. The tall McDonald’s sign is on that parking lot. The new location on Broadway is about one-half block from the previous location.
 
Following that council meeting, city manager Raymie Zella and city building official Robert Stoddard discussed the process that allowed McDonald’s to keep its sign.
 
Prior to 1995 Cuero did not have a sign ordinance. McDonald’s sign was erected in 1994.

CCH directors discuss handgun signage, air ambulance service

By Robert Proctor
The Cuero Record
 
Cuero Community Hospital directors met for their monthly meeting on Thursday, Jan. 28 with several reports and action items.
 
Handgun signage posting requirements and air ambulance services agreement were two of the key items discussed along with Regency Healthcare System assignments.
 
CEO Skip Gjolberg issued his report and legislative update with notes on Texas rural hospitals. Texas rural hospitals continue under heavy financial stress. Medicare payment cutbacks and Affordable Care Act penalties over the past four years are reducing payments to Texas’ 174 rural hospitals by an estimated $60 million a year, per the legislative report.
Hospitals in rural areas are different than urban hospitals and must be treated differently under the Medicare system, notes the report.

Arch rival?

By Glenn Rea
The Cuero Record
 
Did the City of Cuero follow proper procedure when it allowed McDonald’s to keep its tall sign  after the restaurant moved?
 
That was the question pointed at council Tuesday, Jan. 26, in their monthly meeting.
 
With over 30 people in the audience, council launched a four hour meeting with the sign dominating most of that time.
 
San Antonio attorney Brian Cromeens recalled the history of McDonald’s sign. He was speaking for Jeff  Steen, a native of Cuero who now lives in Houston.
 
He said McDonald’s opened here in 1994 at the corner of Esplanade and Broadway, downtown.
