CCR Report

Verona Special Utility District is required by TCEQ to provide to all our water customers a copy of the 2016 Consumer Confidence Report (CCR).  Click here to read our report and then click on DOWNLOAD FILE in order to read the report.

WATER BILLS

Some customers are not getting their water bills.  I assure you all water bills are being mailed out around the 30th of each month and you should receive them no later than the 6th of the month.  If you have not received your bill by the 10th of the month, please call the office to see what is due as your bill is due by the 20th of the month.  These postcard bills are so easy to get stuck to another bill and sometimes they even are found in the road and ditches.  If the problem continues, please contact your local postmaster as this is not a problem of this office.  As always, please call us for any concerns you might have.

Ruth’s mother, who was only three years old, could not even leave the bed because she had no shoes to wear. Late that Christmas Eve night, Ruth’s uncle Gyuri, a young boy of 12 at the time, snuck out of the concentration camp and walked four miles to the nearest town. When he arrived in Deutsch-Wagram, he came upon a house and, knocking at the door, he begged the sleepy woman who answered for some food for his family. She whispered, “Come back tomorrow.” When Gyuri returned on Christmas day, the smiling Austrian lady gave him food, clothing, shoes, and warm woolen socks that she had knitted for his young sister.
