County attorney debunks rumors of FEDC lawsuit
FLORESVILLE -- Wilson County Attorney Russell Wilson is denying rumors that he has filed a lawsuit against the Floresville Economic Development Corp. (FEDC).
Wilson said April 2 that he recently filed an affidavit with the Wilson County District Court because a copy of an interlocal agreement between the FEDC and the county related to the El Rancho Grande Industrial Park was not filed along with the property’s deed. The Wilson County Commissioners Court, on April 13, 2009, approved the agreement, because the 304.38-acre property is located entirely outside Floresville’s extraterritorial jurisdiction.
The FEDC’s attorney, Dominic Carvajal, filed a similar affidavit March 22. Wilson said the matter has since been corrected. Wilson’s affidavit -- of which he provided a copy to the Wilson County News -- also reaffirms that the interlocal agreement still is in effect.
Under normal circumstances, properties located in unincorporated areas of the county would be governed by the county’s subdivision regulations with regard to the establishment of roads and infrastructure. The agreement allows the FEDC to build and maintain the roads and infrastructure, while the county would approve road names and assign road numbers.
In addition, the county attorney said the agreement requires deed restrictions against further subdivision of each plot sold within the industrial park. Wilson said it also requires the FEDC to supply the county with a plat that describes the locations of roads within El Rancho Grande.
