LA VERNIA -- The La Vernia City Council has honored former Councilman Bobby Richter. During the regular council meeting July 11, the council recognized Richter, who served on the council from May 2001 until his passing in March.
Council members Marie Gerlich, Randy Leonard, John Richter, Jennifer Moczygemba, and Eloi Cormier witnessed as Mayor Robert Gregory read a proclamation acknowledging Richter’s involvement with the council and the community.
Gregory then presented the proclamation and a shadow box containing Richter’s council name plate to the former councilman’s wife, Shirley, and children Robert Richter Jr. and Lindsey Herrera.
Also at the meeting, the council approved adopting the tag line, “Live Vibrantly,” for the city of La Vernia. This phrase was the winner chosen from the entries in a contest held by the city’s municipal development district. It will be used in city signage, letterheads, and other materials.
The council also addressed the city’s ongoing municipal well projects; Gregory announced that July 23 will be the opening day for bids. Bids are invited for drilling a new water well.
