FLORESVILLE -- The Floresville 4A Corp. is taking the reins of its own destiny after a workshop with the Floresville City Council Jan. 8 ended with a council vote to allow the 4A board to assume the procedures to execute the budget.
During the meeting, Gloria Martinez of the city’s parks department and Comptroller Lara Feagins provided an overview of the procedures and finances of the Floresville Event Center.
Councilman Jim Miller said the goal of the meeting was to begin the process of allowing the board to make decisions on its own.
“We want you to be able to decide what is best for the facility and to then bring that to the council,” Miller told the board.
The goal of the workshop and the action item approved, Miller said, would begin to take the task of managing the facility from the city and return it to the board.
“I think it went vey well and I feel we are on track with what the city wants to do,” said 4A Board President Bill Gleeson. “It’s going to be a process to get things where we want them to be, but I believe we are on the right track to make that happen. Tuesday’s meeting was to make sure we were on the same page and want to do the same things. I think that was accomplished, and we are in the process of getting things to where we want to go.”
***In attendance: Councilmen Jim Miller, Eric Rodriguez, Sherry M. Castillo, Mario Morones, and John Guerrero; 4A board members Bill Gleeson, Debra Conoly, Paige Pullin, and Melissa Popham; City Manager Andy Joslin; City Secretary Sherry Pollok; and Gloria Martinez with the city’s parks department
