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. Nolan, assistant general counsel of the comptroller’s Open Records Section confirmed that an investigation was ongoing into alleged misappropriation of sales-tax dollars designated for streets maintenance. Spokesman Brooke Botello confirmed two days later that the office’s criminal investigative division was conducting the probe.
