FLORESVILLE -- The status of the Floresville 4A Corp.’s lawsuit against Greco Construction remains unknown, following a closed session deliberation between attorneys and the corporation’s board during its July meeting.

Attorney Michael Gavito of Gravely & Pearson met with the board and its attorney, Rob Killen of Kaufman & Killen, to discuss the suit the corporation filed against Greco in the 218th Judicial District Court in 2012. Greco built the Lauro G. De Leon III Floresville Event Center, which opened in 2010. The 4A corporation seeks to recover damages from Greco related to leaks in the building’s roof.

Also during closed session, Killen and the board discussed the proposed lease between the corporation and the Boys & Girls Clubs of Wilson County. Following the meeting, the board’s Vice President Melissa Popham said she could not release details about what was discussed in closed session. However, with regard to the lease, a subcommittee consisting of board members Leann Drozd and Debra Conoly will conduct research and present its finding to the board at its next meeting.

Popham presided over the meeting in the absence of board President Bill Gleeson, who previously informed her and City Manager Andy Joslin that he will not be participating in meetings for the next few months, due to health problems.

Much of the discussion in open session dealt with the corporation’s finances. The board plans to hold a workshop Aug. 5 at 6 p.m., in which it will discuss preparation of the fiscal year 2014 budget. The workshop will be followed by a board meeting.

Floresville city Comp-troller Lara Feagins said the corporation must adopt its own budget, which will be incorporated into the city’s overall spending plan for the coming fiscal year. The 4A corporation’s budget, she said, will be based on sales-tax revenue, concession sales, debt service, and proceeds from event-center rentals.

With regard to the current year, Feagins said the corporation has received $193,836 in sales-tax proceeds from the state comptroller’s office and $33,392 in revenue from concession sales at the event center. It has realized $96,023 in net revenue, after accounting for office supplies and janitorial, personnel, and building expenses.

Feagins warned that due to repairs being performed on the event center’s ice machine and air-conditioning system, the board will see a lot of building expenses charged during the month of May, which will be reflected in her report at next month’s meeting.

In other business, the 4A corporation is gearing up for an International Barbecue Cookers Association-sanctioned barbecue cook-off. The event center is hosting the event in November, as part of the ninth annual Floresville Fall Fest.

In attendance: Board members Melissa Popham, Leann Drozd, Paige Pullin, and Debra Conoly; attorney Rob Killen of Kaufman & Killen, attorney Michael Gavito of Gravely & Pearson, Floresville Mayor Diana Garza, Gloria Estrada Martinez of the Lauro G. De Leon III Floresville Event Center, and Floresville City Manager Andy Joslin.
