FLORESVILLE -- Mayor Daniel Tejada has filed a lawsuit in district court against Floresville councilmen Jesse C. Flores, Mario Morones, John Guerrero, and Sherry Castillo. The suit states that their absences from recent scheduled city council meetings, resulting in the failure to muster a quorum, has limited “... the ability of the city to function, namely to set a budget and collect taxes, and this will cause immediate and irreparable harm to the residents of the city. No adequate remedy exists at law directing council members to appear as a quorum ...”

The defendants listed are ordered to appear Thursday, Sept. 13, in district court, to show cause “... as to why their presence should not be mandated at the next city council meetings to fulfill the obligations of their office under the city charter ...” and the oaths they took to uphold the charter.

The suit also outlines actions that could result from the council’s failure to muster a quorum and attend to city business. Items pending council attention include:

•Annexation of the recreation corridor -- which includes the Floresville Event Center

•Adoption of the city’s ad valorem tax rate and budget for the new fiscal year. The suit states the city will be “in breach of state law and unable to collect any tax revenue.”

The suit seeks to compel the councilmen “... to attend city council meetings pursuant to the terms of the city charter ...”

Floresville, the Crystal City Raza Unida cancer is now located and eating at your city. Do not listen to them. They will bankrupt and destroy your town. All for their own purposes. They have no honor.
