FLORESVILLE -- The latest chapter in an ongoing saga unfolded during the April 11 Floresville City Council meeting, as the council convened an executive session to again discuss the proposed Pecan Springs RV Park at 1956 Sutherland Springs Road.

Approval for the park was tabled during the March 14 council meeting, which is when the situation took an odd twist.

After the council tabled the issue in March, requesting completion of a water model to understand the impact the new development would have on the surrounding area, City Attorney Lou Rosenberg -- who had not been present -- appeared and requested an executive session to discuss the council’s decision.

Rosenberg advised the council that he had received a phone call that evening regarding the matter; he requested the issue be reviewed.

During the April 11 meeting, the issue was again on the agenda. Rosenberg, however, advised Councilman Eric Rodriguez that it would be in the councilman’s best interest to exclude himself from the executive session.

“I gave you the statute [which explains your exclusion],” Rosenberg told Rodriguez.

Rodriguez would not comment on the issue; however, he and his wife, Lisa, own the Brickwall Apartments, which are in the general area of the proposed RV park.

Upon returning from executive session, the council directed City Manager Andy Joslin to oversee the composition of a water model to outline the impact of the proposed RV park on the area.

While the area is not in the city limits, it falls within the city’s extraterritorial jurisdiction.

Controversy also arose over a request to approve rezoning property at 1716 and 1718 C St. from R-1 residential to commercial.

The rezoning matter was addressed the previous evening by the city’s Planning and Zoning Committee, but was tabled, said Planning and Zoning President Philip Vipond.

Vipond said the area in question was not clearly outlined and a land dispute had arisen. In this light, the Planning and Zoning Committee elected to table the matter until a more precise description of the properties is available.

Councilman Mario Morones felt the members of the Planning and Zoning Committee had tabled the item too hastily and entered a motion to approve the rezone, essentially sidestepping the Planning and Zoning Committee.

Rosenberg, however, said that, in his opinion, the council did not have jurisdiction yet over the issue, since it had not passed Planning and Zoning.

On this advice, Morones withdrew his motion and no action was taken.

Also at the meeting, the council:

•Approved an air-monitoring agreement with the Texas Commission on Environmental Quality (TCEQ) to place a monitoring device at 1404 Hospital Blvd.

•Approved the closure of half of C Street adjacent to the Wilson County Courthouse May 18, for the Floresville Chamber of Commerce Market Days and NOW Ministries’ Health Fair

•Appointed councilmen Rodriguez and Jim Miller to serve on the city’s ordinance committee

•Recognized Rudy Vasquez as the Floresville employee of the month

•Authorized the release of attorney-client privileged information in the form of a demand letter from William T. Avila to the city of Floresville for professional fees related to a proposed sports complex

•Received updates from several boards, including the 4A, 4B (Floresville Economic Development Corp.), Parks Foundation, and the Planning and Zoning Committee. The 4A presented its proposed fee increases for the Floresville Event Center. See story 2A.

In attendance: City Manager Andy Joslin; councilmen Eric Rodriguez, Sherry M. Castillo, Mario Morones, John Guerrero, and Jim Miller; City Secretary Sherry Pollok; and Cyndi Nichols with the city’s Permits Office.
