FLORESVILLE -- The Texas Department of Transportation (TxDOT) soon will lower the posted speed on a stretch of U.S. 181 on the city’s northern edge.

TxDOT Maintenance Supervisor Tim Lowak reported to the Floresville City Council at its Nov. 14 meeting that the 55 mph speed zone on northbound and southbound U.S. 181 will be moved to just north of the C.R. 130/C.R. 330 intersection. The change will reflect recent expansions of the city limits due to the Walmart shopping center and McCoy’s Building Supply. The speed zone currently starts and ends near the Connally Memorial Medical Center.

Also during the meeting, the council voted unanimously that Councilman John W. Guerrero continue as the city’s mayor pro tem. Guerrero, on Nov. 5, was elected to his third, two-year term on the council. He, along with councilmen Johnny Ray Nieto and Eric Rodriguez, was administered the oath of office by Mayor Diana Garza. This was after City Secretary Sherry Pollok reported the results of the city’s election canvass, which were certified by the council. See page 11A for photos of the oaths.

In other business, Kyle Dicke of the Floresville Electric Light & Power System presented the utility’s operating and capital budgets for the 2014 fiscal year, which begins Jan. 1.

Floresville City Council, Nov. 14 meetings. In attendance: Mayor Diana Garza and councilmen Mario Morones, John W. Guerrero, Johnny Ray Nieto, and Eric Rodriguez; former Councilman Sherry Martinez Castillo; Comptroller Lara Feagins, City Manager Henrietta Turner, City Attorney Louis T. Rosenberg, City Secretary Sherry Pollok, and Police Chief Lorenzo Herrera.

This speed limit change has been sorely needed for awhile and has been discussed before on this website. The question is: when will this speed limit change occur?
