Mills is new public works director
LA VERNIA -- Jason Mills has been named the city’s new public works director.
The decision was made by the La Vernia City Council July 26 during a special meeting, said City Secretary-Treasurer Angela Cantu after the meeting.
Mills, who has worked for the city since March 2008, has been serving in an interim capacity in this role since the resignation in May of former Public Works Director Richard Fryer, who continues to recover from injuries sustained in a motorcycle accident.
Prior to his employment with the city of La Vernia, Mills worked in the public works department for the city of Floresville, as well as roles with the Greyhawk Group, the Picosa Water Supply Corp., and Rodney Wiatrek Services. All the jobs involved working with aspects of water supply. He is licensed as a water operator with the Texas Commission on Environmental Quality.
As public works director, Mills will receive an annual salary of $36,500, plus health benefits and retirement, and use of a city vehicle, Cantu said.
In other business, the council approved the language of a request for qualification (RFQ) for “water well design, filtration design, hydrology, infrastructure, water delivery system, contract bid documents, and construction phase management” regarding the city’s ongoing municipal well project. Ads regarding the RFQ have been placed; documents are available from City Hall. Statements of qualification for this project must be submitted by 2 p.m. Friday, Aug. 17. Full details are available from City Hall.
The new request follows the council’s decision in March to sever its ties with LBG Guyton, after numerous delays hampered progress on a proposed replacement well and new municipal well.
The city’s zoning board of adjustment was set to meet Aug. 6, followed by a city council budget workshop.
