FLORESVILLE -- The Floresville Economic Development Corp. (FEDC) continues to research its options related to a lawsuit filed Aug. 30 against the corporation’s board members by County Attorney Russell Wilson. The lawsuit was the subject of a closed session discussion at the board’s Sept. 6 meeting.

Upon reconvening in open session, board member Fred Gonzales made a motion to authorize FEDC’s Executive Director Jesse Perez to seek the advice of the corporation’s attorney, Dominic Carvajal, and to report back to the board with any recommendations. The motion, which was seconded by Freddy Amaro, passed 3-1. Juan Ortiz was the dissenting vote.

Following the meeting, Perez had no comment about the lawsuit, in which Wilson -- in his official capacity as county attorney -- alleges that actions taken during the board’s July 23 meeting violated the Texas Open Meetings Act. During that meeting, the board voted to borrow $2.1 million, which it would give to the city to finance construction of an outdoor sports complex. (See “Wilson County sues Floresville EDC over sports complex,” Sept. 5.)

Under Section 41.009 of the Texas Government Code, the county attorney, under certain circumstances, can file suit against an officer entrusted with the collection or safekeeping of public funds.

***In attendance: FEDC board members Sarah Mendoza, Fred Gonzales, Juan Ortiz, Freddy Amaro, and David Longoria; Executive Director Jesse Perez, and attorney Dominic Carvajal.

If this were simply a case of an open meeting held without full and proper notification, the issue would be easily solved by ratifying the decisions made in a subsequent legal meeting. This goes far deeper.

It's strange that Danny (uh I mean Juan Ortiz) would not want to seek advice from legal advice when he's being sued. I wonder who is giving him advice?

FEDC is researching its options? The only option they have is to tell the truth. That the Mayor bullied them into taking out the loan to bypass the petition. If only one person would have the courage to tell all it would all ... More ›

Each member should get his own lawyer. Otherwise it's a conflict of interest. And the lawyer should be the brother, sister, cousin, neice or nephew of the district judge. Well, you need all the help you can get.
