FLORESVILLE -- Following several meetings canceled due to the lack of a quorum or a presiding officer, the Floresville City Council met for a rare, 10 a.m. meeting today. The meeting followed the submission of an order by City Attorney Louis T. Rosenberg, which called for the dismissal of a lawsuit filed in district court by Mayor Daniel Tejada against four councilmen.

Tejada and councilmen Jesse Christopher Flores, Mario Morones, John W. Guerrero, and Sherry Martinez Castillo were rejoined by Johnnie R. Gomez. The former councilman was reinstated as part of the earlier court action.

During the meeting, the council discussed several items of city business. They also held public hearings on the city’s proposed budget and tax rate for fiscal year 2013. The proposed ad valorem tax rate is set to remain at 32.27 cents per $100 of assessed value. A second round of hearings is set for Monday, Sept. 17, at 7 p.m.

For more, read the Sept. 19 print edition of the Wilson County News.
