Letter: How about a little good news?
Re: “Auditor sounds the alarm for Floresville’s finances,” Jan. 23
I am really disturbed by the front-page article in the Wilson County News about the city of Floresville being insolvent. I am not questioning the auditor’s accuracy.
First, I don’t agree with selling the event center. I also don’t agree with the statements at the end of the article regarding cutting employee benefits.
To lift my spirits, I drove south starting at Walmart. I noticed the following very positive items:
•New construction is under way in front of Walmart.
•Work has started on the McCoy’s Building Supply site across the street from Walmart.
•Surveyors were working on the property behind Randolph-Brooks Federal Credit Union.
•Holiday Inn Express is under construction just south of H-E-B.
•Executive Suites is under construction on the left past Richardson Chevrolet.
•A new La Quinta opened recently.
•A new Department of Health & Human Services building is under construction past the post office on Paloma Drive.
•A large apartment complex is under construction nearby on Paloma Drive.
Surely I am not the only one with optimism about Floresville’s future.
