 23 Jan 2014  Notice to the Public  

It has been reported that over the past several days telephone calls have been received from a phone number listed as the City of La Vernia.  These reported telephone calls are not being made by representatives of the City of La Vernia.  If you should receive such a telephone call, please use caution when providing information. 


This practice is termed as ‘spoofing’ a telephone number. Such activity is illegal in accordance with the Truth in Caller ID Act.  What occurs is that another person and/or company uses technology to display an erroneous phone number on a receiver’s caller id display.  According to the FCC, this is a ploy that is used by persons engaged in Identity Theft.


The City of La Vernia apologizes for any inconvenience or intrusion that these telephone calls may cause.  It is also recommended that if you believe the call to be a hoax, get the name of the caller and then advise them that you will call them back.  If the call is a hoax, the caller will likely be uncooperative.  Record as much information as possible and then report it to the FCC Consumer Line at 1-888-225-5322, option 1 then option 5.  You may also notify the La Vernia Police Department at (830) 779-4541 X1.  Please have the reference number that the FCC representative provides.


Public Notification Of Violation


The City of La Vernia would like to inform all of our customers and close residents that we have received a violation from the TCEQ (Texas Commission on Environmental Quality). This violation is due to a clerical error that occurred on the Disinfectant Level Quarterly Operating Report (DLQOR) which is a routine chlorine monitoring form. There has been no change in the water throughout our system and the water is and has been safe to drink. This was simply a failure on our part to insure all paperwork was correct. We hope everyone has a safe and wonderful new year, and the City of La Vernia looks forward to serving each and every one of you.


If you have any questions regarding this information please contact Public Works Director Jason Mills at (830) 779-4541 ext. 4.
