FLORESVILLE -- The Floresville Independent School District (ISD) board of trustees has joined counterparts in the Nixon-Smiley Consolidated, Poth, and Stockdale ISDs in passing a resolution against a Texas Department of Environmental Quality TCEQ) wastewater disposal permit submitted by Gordon Swenson. Floresville Alternative Education Center Principal Bud Box, who is a member of the Nixon-Smiley Consolidated ISD school board, addressed Floresville’s board about the issue during its Feb. 20 meeting.

Box said Swenson’s request calls for dumping 23 million gallons of domestic septage onto a property located on the Gonzales-Wilson county line.

“[The amount of human waste] is equivalent to more than 100 Olympic-sized swimming pools,” Box said.

He also said that Swenson has applied for a preliminary permit to dump the material on another 600-acre property he owns. Box said citizens continue to ask TCEQ to have a public hearing on the proposal.

The Wilson County Commissioners Court also has approved a resolution opposing Swenson’s plan.

Also during the meeting, the board approved six new courses for the 2013-14 school year at Floresville High School:

•Statistics and Risk Management, a fourth-year mathematics course

•Advanced Automotive Technology

•Principles of Arts, Audio/Video Technology and Communications

•Advanced Audio-Video Production

•Principles of Hospitality and Tourism

•Audio-Video Production

In other business, the board convened in closed session to discuss many items. These were among the personnel decisions approved when the board reconvened in open session:

•Mike McSwain was hired as the Assistant Superintendent for Finance, effective July 1. He replaces Ken Barber, who will resign at the end of the current school year.

•Accepted resignations for Floresville High School teacher Rolando Riojas and Floresville North Elementary School teacher Gabriel Morin. Both resignations are effective in June.

•Accepted the retirement of CHOICES teacher Gary Butschek, which is effective in June.

In attendance: Board members Freddy Carrillo, Bill Meuth, John Raabe, Ryan Bippert, Neysa Choate, and Doug Shoemaker; Superintendent Jerry Lee Hunkapiller, Assistant Superintendent Sherri Bays, Director of Personnel Jacquelyn Baker, Business Manager Linnci Angle, Superintendent’s Secretary Kim Cathey, Director of Special Education Paige Fuller, Director of Special Programs Jackie Kutac, Director of Maintenance Charles Bump, Floresville Alternative Education Center Principal Bud Box, Floresville High School Principal Sandra Galinzoga, Floresville Middle School Principal Sara Mann

Not to worry. Much of the cost is covered by government grants. You know, that free money stuff. Besides, do you want to deprive the kids? Why where would they be if they were only taught reading, writing and arithmatic and the ... More ›
