FLORESVILLE -- The state comptroller’s office has confirmed to the Wilson County News that the city of Floresville is the subject of an active investigation.

In an Oct. 3 response to an open records request dated Sept. 23, James G.

Spokesman Brooke Botello confirmed two days later that the office’s criminal investigative division was conducting the probe.
