LA VERNIA -- The La Vernia City Council met April 11, for the first time since the passing of former council member Bobby Richter.
Mayor Robert Gregory asked for a moment of silence to remember and honor the councilman, community member, and friend.
During the meeting, Gregory volunteered to serve as a new member on the Canyon Regional Water Authority (CRWA) board of trustees. The city of La Vernia purchases water from CRWA and is eligible to have two members on the board of trustees.
John Richter is serving on the board until his term ends in May. Richter and fellow council members Marie Gerlich, Eloi Cormier, and Randy Leonard approved Gregory to represent the city.
The council also approved Public Works Manager Jason Mills to serve on the water authority’s board of managers for a one-year term.
Also during the meeting, the council withdrew into executive session, where they discussed a base salary for a new position with a combination water and wastewater license in the public works department. This was approved upon reconvening in open session.
In addition, the council recognized Christa Gehlhaar of Redhawk Designs, in appreciation for her work in designing new patches for the La Vernia Police Department. Police Chief Bruce Ritchey presented the designer with a plaque.
