No ban on aerial fireworks locally, jail earns compliance certificate

 

This holiday season will be the first in a long time that has not been under a burn ban.
 
At Monday’s DeWitt County commissioners court meeting, it was agreed there has been sufficient rain to allow the sell of aerial fireworks for the Christmas and New Year’s holidays.
 
Also at the meeting the court took no action on a general burn ban in the rural portions of the county.
 
In other discussions, Sheriff Jode Zavesky reported the Texas Commission on Jail Standards has again issued a certificate of compliance on the county jail following their inspection earlier this year. 
 
Zavesky said the jail has had continuous compliance certifications since the jail was built in 2010.
 
The court also chose Naismith Engineering, Inc. as the county’s official engineer for county road and bridge related projects.

Construction to begin on new DeWitt County bridge

 

YOAKUM, Texas — The Texas Department of Transportation has awarded a $202,141.00 contract to Constar Construction of Victoria to replace a bridge on Old Gonzales Road just north of Cuero. Construction is due to begin the first week of December, with completion scheduled in February 2015.
 
The project will require the complete closure of the intersection of Old Gonzales Road and Ed Blackwell Road. Motorists will need to find alternate routes around the project area.
 
The bridge, built in 1940, has been deemed structurally deficient and cannot accommodate vehicles weighing more than 21,000 pounds. The new bridge will have no weight limitations.

Construction complete at GVEC, grand opening follows

 

There is a new business in Cuero. Recognizable for its bright red roof, GVEC Customer Service Center and Home Showroom opened its new facility here last week.
 
Located across from Cuero High School, the Guadalupe Valley Electric Cooperative service center is actually a relocation from about two  blocks away but the appliance showroom is new.
 
Also celebrating an opening last week was the GVEC Southern Operations Center located just north of Cuero on Hwy. 183. It will serve as a centralized operations, warehousing and transportation facility for GVEC here.
 
Both the service center and operations center were re-located because their previous location has been purchased and will become the site of a new HEB grocery store.
