FLORESVILLE -- A familiar face will fill the role of executive director for the Floresville Economic Development Corp. (FEDC), as the FEDC board voted unanimously Jan. 14 to appoint former Mayor Raymond “Ram” Ramirez to the position on an interim basis.

The first item on the agenda under new business was to accept the resignation of former Executive Director Jesse Perez. He tendered his resignation, effective Jan. 15.

Former FEDC board member Fred Gonzales said Perez will be working for the city of Hondo as the executive director for the Hondo Economic Development Corp. Hondo is closer to Perez’s residence in San Antonio, Gonzales said.

FEDC Treasurer Jason Talley said he believes Ramirez is a good fit while the FEDC plans its approach to filling the position.

Talley said during the meeting that there is a lot of housekeeping that needs to be done before the board considers hiring anyone on a permanent basis, but that Ramirez is someone that is familiar with the FEDC and can work to help fix things internally.

The board also voted to appoint Mary Helen Tieken, with the assistance of Andy Eubanks, to begin the search for a permanent executive director.

Tieken and Eubanks are tasked with assessing the current situation and determining the best route toward recruitment. Ideas, such as sending inquiries to the Texas Municipal League (TML) and other such agencies, were discussed.

The board also discussed the impending fiscal year 2011-12 audit and presented a letter of engagement from Pat Wagner, representing auditors Alonzo, Bacarisse, Irvine and Palmer P.C.

The letter outlined the objectives of the audit and services to be performed by Wagner.

During the course of discussion, it was revealed that during the previous audit process, Perez had stopped returning phone calls and emails from Wagner, so the footnote portion of the FEDC audit is incomplete.

Also at the meeting, the board:

•Approved the newly revised FEDC bylaws

•Tabled an agenda item referring to El Rancho Grande business park.

In attendance: Associate City Attorney Chris Hugg; board members Mary Helen Tieken, David Strozier, Andy Eubanks, Jason Talley, Ray Lamberth, Ram Ramirez, and Mike Herry.

FEDC should demand councilman Rodriguez to step up and buy the property he has kept under contract but has not purchased or put it back up for sale arrangements like this are unethical and this is the type of management that ... More ›
