FLORESVILLE -- The city’s first budget workshop for the new fiscal year was held at Floresville City Hall on June 12. To open the meeting, Mayor Daniel Tejada called for citizen input before the meeting shifted into a working session. Tension mounted as Floresville businessman Jim Miller stood before the city council to raise questions regarding why the city of Floresville had not released recent information.

“We have yet to see any numbers for the current fiscal year,” Miller said. “It’s hard to ask for citizens’ input when we have yet to see any numbers.”

Miller raised a few more questions with regard to the water and sewer system plans for the future, as well.

“It’s hard to give citizens’ input when we don’t know the cost of the water mapping,” Miller said. “What are the costs of the sewer expansion? How are we going to fund that? Is it going to be all grant? Is it going to be a loan? If it’s a loan, even if it’s zero percent, that’s going to add to our debt structure, and that needs to be considered in this.”

Miller also brought up a rumor that progress on a proposed Holiday Inn Express was on hold, due to problems with the city’s water pressure. This was quickly dispelled by City Manager Andy Joslin.

“It’s important to separate fact from rumor,” Joslin said. “The people of Floresville should come to their appointed and elected officials with concerns they have.”

After the citizens’ input portion of the meeting, the council moved into a working session for the budget workshop.

“The city was hoping for a citizen wish list,” said Constituent Liaison Sherry Pollok. “We want to know what the citizens of Floresville would like to see in the next budget. During the next budget workshop, we will definitely start looking at numbers and dollar amounts.”

Floresville’s new comptroller, Tom Smith, outlined his progress on bringing the city up to compliance with its finances.

“There’s plenty to go, no one’s denying that,” Smith said.

Smith also is training city employees to use the Encode System, its accounting software, which was one of the deficiencies brought to light during the recent audit.

Councilman Mario Morones extended his thanks to the citizens of Floresville for their continued participation in the budget process.

“We have to thank the citizens for what they’ve done,” Morones said. “It’s because of them we are walking a little straighter.”

Chief Lorenzo Herrera of the Floresville Police Department presented a variety of items for council consideration in the budgeting process, including increases in equipment, supplies, and janitorial services.

Carolyn Leal-Palacios, marketing director of the Lauro G. De Leon III Floresville Event Center, among other things, presented proposed improvements to the event center and city swimming pool, and requested a new shredder for cutting grass.

Why is the convention center asking the City for money including a new shredder for cutting grass? The convention center (4A) receives sales tax money and is supposed to be self-sufficient. Of course, if you can't even pay ... More ›
