Floresville 4A presses city for financial data

FLORESVILLE -- An alleged lack of cooperation from city officials regarding the release of financial data related to operating the Lauro G. De Leon III Floresville Event Center has prompted the Floresville 4A Corp.’s legal counsel to get involved. At the corporation’s Feb. 25 board meeting, the board authorized Rob Killen to draft a letter -- which will be signed by board President Bill Gleeson -- to City Manager Andy Joslin, formally requesting information about the center’s day-to-day costs and debt service.

“I’m the treasurer and I still haven’t gotten an answer,” said board Treasurer Debra Conoly, who claims officials have not honored her requests for the data.

According to the meeting’s agenda, Floresville City Comptroller Lara Feagins was set to deliver a report about the center’s operating costs. But she was unable to attend because of a concurrent meeting of the Floresville City Council and a subsequent meeting of the council’s audit committee. For more about those meetings, see related articles page 1A and right.

“When we set our meeting up, no one knew there would be other meetings [tonight],” Melissa Popham said.

Also during the meeting, the board and event center Administrator Gloria Estrada Martinez discussed possible changes in rental fees that would aid in better cost recovery. A committee including Martinez, Conoly, and Popham was tasked to create a proposal and present it at the board’s next meeting.

“We want to keep everyone happy,” Gleeson said. “But if we want to keep this facility open, we got to pay our bills.”

In attendance: Board members Bill Gleeson, Melissa Popham, Paige Pullin, and Debra Conoly; Lauro G. De Leon III Floresville Event Center Administrator Gloria Martinez, and Rob Killen and Mitsuko Ramos of Kaufman and Killen.

Yeah, DA Pena isn't going to do anything. His son just recently was married at the Event Center. The biggest upset about the whole event center, is they disgraced a fallen hero of our town by supposedly naming it after him, ... More ›

I believe the only one who can call in the Rangers is the Floresville DA Rene Pena. We all know that is not going to happen as he hasnt done much to help us out up to this point. He has been very quiet and silent. Dont understand ... More ›

Do we need to call in the Texas Rangers to investigate all this? More and more just seems to come out! When are the officials going to tell us everything? Is that why Castillo quit the audit committee? I bet she ran to Tejada ... More ›

Alvin - what a dandy idea! Except for the pesky debt it owes. I hear the payments go up to over a million dollars a year come 2016. You can thank the last regime for this big fat mess. No plan. Just spend lots of money ... More ›

Shut down the 4A - total waste of money. Nobody moves to Floresville because of any activity related to them. Any business here woud have come without them. Shut it down.

Could it be that she is backing him to help get her son help with his recent drug arrest. We all know Joslin has a lot of influence with the Floresville police and maybe even the DA? Just wondering why she would back the guy ... More ›

Of course she is they are buddies. That is why we questioned why she was allowed back on this board, she was there once and resigned. I'm sure there were other people that would be glad to sit on this board and get it straight! ... More ›
