Floresville businesses to see higher trash fees

Beginning with bills due Feb. 10, businesses that have trash picked up as a result of the city of Floresville’s contract with Allied Waste Services will be asked to dig a little deeper each month. The Floresville City Council, at its Dec. 12 meeting, voted unanimously to amend the city’s solid waste collection ordinance.

Comptroller Lara Feagins told the council that under the previous rates, the city was on pace to lose $45,000 in revenue from its general fund over the course of the fiscal year. This is because the ordinance had not been amended to keep pace with approved rate changes over previous years.

City Manager Henrietta Turner said the rates under the previous ordinance actually resulted in the city subsidizing trash collection for large-volume customers, such as Walmart and Whataburger.

The 176 commercial customers who utilize 96-gallon poly cart containers, who were paying $23.45 per month for the use of one container, will see that fee increase $3.57 to $27.02. Additional poly carts, which previously cost $4.62 per month, now will cost $9.65.

Most businesses that utilize dumpsters will see pricing increases varying between 25.25 percent and 66.54 percent. For instance, companies that pay $88.44 per month for once-weekly pickup of a 2-yard container will see bills increase by $22.33 to $110.77.

One customer who has a 2-yard container emptied twice weekly will see the bill increase from $124.10 to $206.68.

Those who have 8-yard containers emptied once weekly and twice weekly will see slight decreases in their bills of 3.11 percent and 7.48 percent, respectively.

The full text of the ordinance, with pricing, is available at wilsoncountynews.com (see link below to PDF).

Also during the meeting, the council approved the first reading of an ordinance related to changing the speed limit on a stretch of northbound and southbound U.S. 181 at the northern edge of the city limits. Previously, the posted speed for northbound traffic increased to 70 mph near the Law Offices of Donaho & Dockery. That zone now has been extended to north of the C.R. 331 intersection, due to recent changes in the city limits.

Southbound traffic, which previously had to slow down to 55 mph upon passing Ancira Ford, now will reduce its speed prior to passing C.R. 130.

In other business, the council voted to approve the replatting of four lots on Trail Street between Oak and Pecan streets, which will be combined into one lot. The council also voted to allow variances related to the setback of the new lot and for off-street parking.

The Floresville Planning and Zoning Commission Nov. 6 approved both the variances and the new plat, paving the way for the Sacred Heart Catholic Church -- which faces the site -- to build a 6,160- square-foot structure that will house its Society of St. Vincent de Paul ministry and children’s activities.

The council also took action related to the recent resignation of former Place 1 Councilman Jim Miller. See related article, this page.

Floresville City Council meeting Dec. 12. In attendance: Mayor Diana Garza and councilmen Mario Morones, Johnny Ray Nieto, John W. Guerrero, and Eric Rodriguez; City Manager Henrietta Turner, Administrative Assistant Monica Cordova, City Secretary Sherry Pollok, Cyndi Nichols of the Floresville Permits and Code Compliance Office, Comptroller Lara Feagins, and Police Chief Lorenzo Herrera.

How much would it cost for a container large enough to clean up city hall? Oh, sorry. That's a haz-mat job.
