La Vernia Connections: LV is a city on the move
Mayor of La VerniaSeptember 12, 2012 | 1,432 views | 2 comments
Hello, La Vernia Citizens,
I apologize for tardiness for this, my first Mayor’s Corner article! A couple of months have passed since I was sworn in back on May 17, and I want to start by saying “thank you” for giving me the opportunity to serve you and help make our community a great place to live in. I have to say, Harold Schott counseled me on some of the ups and downs of the job, but he left a few things out. Who knew I might find myself chasing down forgery suspects, or having to throw on some rubber boots to help the public works department repair a troublesome water leak on a pretty Sunday afternoon and so on.
Writing a job description would be tough for this position, but I’ll say “it’s all part of the job and I love it!”
As for what’s going on, have you noticed the crews working along U.S. 87 trenching and burying pipe? That’s a natural gas pipeline, which is a very needed utility to attract and enhance business growth in our area. Be on the lookout for La Vernia Crossing to start developing soon, adding more options to our shopping fun, and more importantly, jobs to our community. On that note, did you know that with the efforts of our Municipal Development District, more than 160 jobs have been added to our area in the last year?
The city of La Vernia has a Facebook page, so please “Like” us so that you can keep up with important events going on within La Vernia.
Folks, we’re a city on the move, with a city council and staff all working hard with one common goal in mind, and that’s to make this the most desirable place to live and work.
I’ll end this month’s Mayor’s Corner with Go Bears! Make La Vernia Proud!
Robert Gregory is the mayor of La Vernia.
