LA VERNIA -- Motorcyclists may feel more appreciated in La Vernia, after the May 10 city council meeting.

Mayor Harold Schott and the council presented a proclamation to members of area motorcycle clubs, declaring May as Motorcycle Safety and Awareness Month in La Vernia.

That was preceded by an emotional proclamation from the city to nurse James Wright, whose selfless actions undoubtedly saved the life of La Vernia Public Works Director Richard Fryer March 4, when he suffered head trauma and other injuries in a motorcycle accident.

Wright accepted the proclamation to applause, receiving hugs from Fryer, who attended on temporary release from a rehabilitation facility. Fryer’s wife, Irene, also hugged and thanked Wright for his assistance and support following the accident.

The council also voted to accept Fryer’s resignation, “with our regrets and our prayers,” said Councilman D. Bradford Beck. Fryer and his wife made the difficult decision, as he works to recover following the accident.

It was an evening of acclamation, as Gilbert de la Fuente, representing U.S. Rep. Henry Cuellar, presented Schott with a special recognition from Congress for his contributions to the city as mayor, former councilman, and citizen. The minute, read into the permanent congressional record, especially noted Schott’s efforts to secure sufficient municipal water for La Vernia, and his efforts on behalf of the city to fund a new municipal well.

In other business, the council considered rezoning a property at 130 Bluebonnet Road from residential to retail. Beck made a motion to approve the measure, based on the recommendation of the Planning and Zoning Commission. It died for lack of a second, however.

Two public hearings were held regarding ordinance changes affecting transportation and street design and off-street parking and loading. No one addressed the council during either hearing; both measures met with council approval. Off-street parking, such as queuing at drive-through lines at banks, car washes, and drive-through restaurants must now meet new guidelines for new construction; the measures do not affect existing businesses. The full ordinances are available at City Hall or by visiting the city’s website, www.lavernia-tx.gov.

As the meeting concluded, Beck asked for a moment to recognize Schott, who presided over his final meeting as mayor.

“Thank you for your service, sir!” Beck offered, on behalf of the entire council.

“It’s been a great ride,” Schott said. “And we will adjourn.”
