FLORESVILLE -- If the city council here grants its approval of a fee schedule proposed by the Floresville 4A Corp. board, fees associated with renting space in the Lauro G. De Leon III Floresville Event Center could increase. The board voted unanimously at its June 3 meeting to formally recommend the new fees to the Floresville City Council.

According to a draft of the schedule, there are varying percentages of increase. The most dramatic increase is that of renting Room 151 -- which has an area of 2,620 square feet -- on weekdays. It previously cost $150 per day to rent that room. If the council approves the new fee schedule, that rate will climb 167 percent to $400.

Rental of the ballroom Monday through Thursday, which currently costs $500 per day, would increase 20 percent to $600 per day. Hourly rental for that same time period would increase 50 percent, from $100 to $150.

Melissa Popham, vice president of the 4A corporation’s board, said the proposed fees are comparable with rates charged at other area venues.

“These fee schedules that we’ve proposed are not ‘out there’ whatsoever,” she said.

Also during the meeting, the board had a lengthy and at times heated discussion with Debbie Bolf of the Boys & Girls Club of Wilson County concerning its lease of space in the center. The board presented the club with a lease agreement in the fall, which board President Bill Gleeson said has not yet been signed.

Bolf expressed concerns over her group being responsible for repairing any items they damage, because they are not the only ones using the center. She recounted a recent discovery of a broken shelf in one of the restrooms following a volleyball tournament hosted by another organization.

Since the organization has been working with the 4A corporation to host its events on a space-available basis, Bolf proposed that the club assist with scheduling of the gymnasium, since it has more experience with the unique needs of sports and recreation events.

Bolf also raised issues over the Boys & Girls Club being charged a fee to lease the center, arguing that the organization provides a service to the community that the city cannot afford to facilitate on its own.

Gleeson and fellow board member Leann Drozd agreed to work with the club to see if a compromise could be reached.

In other business, the board:

•Heard a presentation on the corporation’s finances from Floresville city Comptroller Lara Feagins.

•Heard a presentation from Fidel Villegas and Jose Villafana of Floresville Baseball Country, about its desire to lease land at the event center that would enable the company to bring Select baseball tournaments to the city.

In attendance: Board members Bill Gleeson, Debra Conoly, Melissa Popham, Leann Drozd and Paige Pullin; Mitsuko Ramos of Kaufman & Killen, and Floresville city Comptroller Lara Feagins.
