The city of La Vernia may be a step closer to completion of a new municipal water well.

A pump test was scheduled for Jan. 10, Mayor Robert Gregory told the La Vernia City Council Jan. 9 during a regular meeting. The well project, begun in 2010, was among several items addressed by the council.

The city had received a report on a chemical analysis from Southwest Engineers. This revealed that water hardness was more than expected, Gregory said, but less than the hardness of water from the Edwards Aquifer, which serves San Antonio.

“We’ve got well more GPM [gallons per minute] than expected and more water than expected,” he said, adding that filtration bids had been received and would be opened Jan. 19 at City Hall.

“We’re getting close!” he exclaimed.

Moving onto other business, the council approved former city Councilman Roger Miller to replace Marlin Tanneberger on the Floresville Electric Light & Power System’s board of directors. Tanneberger has represented the city on the board for eight years and is ineligible to continue without a break in service, he told the council. The position is more an advisory role; the director representing La Vernia cannot vote.

The council also considered contracting with Bureau Veritas to perform building inspections for the city. However, an article in the Jan. 8 Wilson County News raised the council’s concerns. The city of Floresville’s permits and code compliance office had been advised the company does not verify setbacks for commercial buildings. This created problems for a hotel in Floresville.

“I can’t recommend them at this time without further review,” Gregory told the council.

The matter was tabled, pending more information.

In other matters, the council also:

•Approved an amendment to the city’s employee handbook regarding holiday leave time for police department employees.

•Tabled creating an employee leave bank policy, following advice from attorney Jameene Banks in a brief executive session.

•Took no action after discussing a letter to the editor published in the La Vernia News from Councilman John Richter.

•Tabled any action on a proposed zoning ordinance and set a third public hearing on the matter for Jan. 30, after a lengthy second public hearing at the start of the council meeting. A quorum of the city’s Planning & Zoning Commission was present; the members convened and adjourned as required. Read more about this above.

The mayor also reported that a petition is circulating in the community to request a traffic control device at the intersection of F.M. 775 and F.M. 1346, near the post office.

La Vernia City Council Jan. 9 regular meeting and public hearing. In attendance: Mayor Robert Gregory; councilmen Marie Gerlich, Randy Leonard, John Richter, Eloi Cormier, and Jennifer Moczygemba; Planning & Zoning Commission members Gordon Bake, Viola Robles, Marlin Tanneberger, and Martin Poore; city attorney Jameene Banks, City Secretary/Treasurer Angela Cantu, Public Works Director Jason Mills, and Police Chief Bruce Ritchey.
