FEDC, Sunko Water hash out utilities agreement

FLORESVILLE -- The Floresville Economic Development Corp. (FEDC) continues to pick up the pieces from the previous administration, run by former FEDC Executive Director Jesse Perez, especially in relation to the Rancho Grande Industrial Park. This was the subject of lengthy discussion April 25, during a special meeting of the corporation’s board.

The board approved a contract with Sunko Water Supply regarding the water utilities at Rancho Grande.

“Sunko is wanting a contract with us as to who is responsible for the maintenance of the pipelines and with them selling water [to know] if that’s their water,” said FEDC President Andy Eubanks.

The agreement, drafted by the corporation’s real estate attorney, Howard Berger, makes clear that while the FEDC owns the land at Rancho Grande, Sunko would be responsible for selling the water.

The Sunko contract is another step toward full utilization of the business park, which suffered a lack of planning and management in years past.

“There is money to be made in this park,” said Treasurer Jason Talley after the meeting. “We are still in the clean-up stages of our business as an economic development corporation.”

After a lengthy executive session, in which the FEDC conferred with attorneys Lou Rosenberg and Berger, more decisions regarding the park’s future were read into the open session minutes, including the authorization to advise interim Executive Director Raymond “Ram” Ramirez to execute a mineral rights lease for Rancho Grande.

A representative with Talisman Energy attended the April 15 FEDC meeting to offer a lease on the mineral rights for the industrial park.

The corporation’s board authorized Ramirez to execute an oil, gas, and mineral lease for Rancho Grande after negotiations by Berger are completed.

The previous offer was $750 per acre for a three-year lease, which includes a one-fifth royalty of everything taken out through the Eagle Ford and three-sixteenths for anything below.

Also during the meeting, the board:

•Authorized Ramirez to contact landowners at Rancho Grande to set up restrictions based on their needs.

•Began the process of discovering rights of recovery regarding F&W Electric through reversionary clauses. Due to a clause in the contract negotiated between F&W Electric and the FEDC, nonperformance on the part of F&W has reverted the property back to the FEDC. Members of the FEDC have decided to work to find an amicable solution to the issue.

•Hired Rosenberg to represent the FEDC for litigation with J.D. Ramming Paving Co. for alleged funds owed, amounting to approximately $17,000 plus court costs.

•Accepted the resignations of board President David Strozier and Andy Eubanks as vice president; both remain on the board.

•Appointed Andy Eubanks as president and Ray Lamberth as vice president.

Fed wont answer, he always comes on writes his opinion of the great Kernel and runs and hides. Never replies to questions. Why don't you move on to Hondo with the Kernel, maybe he can get you a job there as well
