FLORESVILLE -- City Manager Andy Joslin has confirmed that Jesse Perez, executive director for the Floresville Economic Development Corp. (FEDC), has submitted his resignation, effective Jan. 15.

Joslin said Perez did not cite any specific reason, other than to say he felt it was time to move on.

“The city of Floresville is extremely appreciative of the work Jesse Perez did on behalf of the EDC,” Joslin said. “He will truly be missed.”

Perez has been employed with the FEDC since 2001.
