| 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.
| 20 Jan 2014 ||PUBLIC NOTIFICATION OF VIOLATION |
Public Notification Of Violation
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.
you have any questions regarding this information please contact Public Works
Director Jason Mills at (830) 779-4541 ext. 4.
