FLORESVILLE -- Following lengthy discussions and some tough questions, the city council here has approved a fiscal year 2013 budget for the Floresville Economic Development Corp. and a salary increase for the city manager.

Questions abounded during the Oct. 4 meeting of the Floresville City Council as Jesse Perez, executive director of the Floresville Economic Development Corp. (FEDC) stepped up to the podium to present the corporation’s budget.

Perez faced detailed questioning from both the audience and three members of the city council regarding the details of his budget numbers.

“We need more specifics,” said Councilman John Guerrero after the meeting. “If he says he has $350,000 allocated for Rancho Grande [Industrial Park], but he doesn’t present to us how that money will be spent, then how do we know how that money will be utilized?”

“All of those numbers I can provide to you,” Perez said.

The proposed budget passed with a 3-1 vote, with councilmen Jesse Chris Flores, Sherry M. Castillo, and Johnnie R. Gomez voting for and Guerrero against.

The council convened an executive session for 86 minutes during the meeting to discuss the evaluation of City Manager Andy Joslin. After the executive session, the council agreed to renew Joslin’s contract for two years and increase his salary by 3 percent in fiscal year 2013, set retroactively to Oct. 1, and 5 percent in each of the next two years, pending evaluation.

“The raise comes out to about $2,400,” Gomez said.

Also during the meeting, the council:

•Recognized new City Secretary Sherry Pollock as employee of the year and Edelmiro Chapa as employee of the month.

•Approved a prolife proclamation sponsored by the Knights of Columbus. A prolife march will take place Nov. 17, beginning at 7:30 a.m. at the Knights of Columbus Hall.

•Provided the second readings for ordinances regarding the franchise fee for solid waste disposal and regulating recreational vehicles within Floresville’s extra-territorial jurisdiction.

•Tabled two agenda items, including the appointment of a member to the FEDC board to replace Rebecca Silva.

***In attendance: councilmen Sherry M. Castillo, John Guerrero, Johnnie R. Gomez, and Jesse Chris Flores; Mayor Daniel Tejada; City Manager Andy Joslin; City Secretary Sherry Pollock; Administrative Services Director Margaret Aranda; FEDC Executive Director Jesse Perez and board President Sarah Mendoza; and Cyndi Nichols of the city’s permits office.
