FLORESVILLE -- The newly appointed members of the Floresville Economic Development Corp. (FEDC) board have wasted no time in their efforts to change the scope of the corporation.

Officers were elected Dec. 10 during the board’s first meeting after being appointed. The board is composed of new members recently appointed by the Floresville City Council.

Following a nomination process, the officers are David Strozier, president; Andy Eubanks, vice president; Mary Helen Tieken, secretary; and Jason Talley, treasurer.

During the meeting, the FEDC board members spent more than three hours discussing bylaws, articles of incorporation, and the Texas Open Meetings Act. The consensus among board members was that a workshop is needed to amend and update the bylaws.

“There are things in there that are out of date,” Strozier said after the meeting. “The bylaws are from the mid-’90s and there are some things that need to be updated.”

One key topic addresses the requirement that FEDC board members serve staggered terms of two years.

“The entire board is completely new,” Strozier said. “So the term issue will have to be addressed, since we are all coming in at the same time.”

The FEDC also discussed the pending sports/recreation complex in Floresville. The former FEDC board had committed to a loan of $2.1 million to finance the project.

“There is a substantial need to address the erosion and sinkholes at the Little League fields,” Executive Director Jesse Perez said.

“Having had property by water, I can tell you that you are never going to beat the river,” Talley said, referring to the San Antonio River erosion in the River Park. “You just do what you can to manage it.”

Some information regarding the FEDC came as a surprise to the new board. Among issues of concern are the corporation’s lack of any form of directors and officers insurance and the fact that neither of the two paid employees of the FEDC, Jesse Perez and Vicente Griego, has a contract.

“I was surprised to learn that they were not under contract,” Tieken said.

During the meeting, Perez informed the board that he pays Griego at a rate of $20 per hour.

Strozier said after the meeting that the initial meeting of the FEDC with its new members went well.

“The meeting was very productive,” Strozier said. “There is a long way to go to straighten everything out, but it was productive overall.”

***In attendance: Executive Director Jesse Perez; City Manager Andy Joslin; FEDC President David Strozier; board members Mary Helen Tieken, Jason Talley, Ram Ramirez, Andy Eubanks, Ray Lamberth, and Mike Herry.
