FLORESVILLE -- The Floresville 4A Corp. board is again complete, after the Floresville City Council at its Feb. 13 meeting voted 3-1 to name five members to the board.

Current board President Bill Gleeson is the lone holdover. But he will be joined by some familiar faces, as recently resigned board members Debra Conoly, Melissa Popham, and LeAnn Drozd were reappointed to the board. One newcomer -- former Floresville City Manager Andy Joslin -- also was appointed.

Paige Pullin, who remained on the board with Gleeson following the resignations, was not reappointed.

Also during the meeting, the council heard a presentation from Time Warner Cable about the possible provision of fiber-optic Internet service for City Hall, the Floresville Police Department, and the event center.







In other business, the council:

•Recognized Gloria Estrada Martinez, administrative assistant at the Lauro G. De Leon III Floresville Event Center, as the December 2013 employee of the month.

•Recognized Johnny Luna of the city’s water department as the city’s January 2014 employee of the month.

•Witnessed a presentation of a plaque and flowers to former City Secretary Sherry Pollok, who resigned earlier this month. Applicants are being sought to fill her vacancy, along with that of a utility department supervisor.

•Heard from Mark Mitchell about the proposed residential subdivision, The Parks. Read more on page 1A.

In attendance: Mayor Diana Garza and councilmen Mario Morones, Johnny Ray Nieto, John W. Guerrero, and Eric Rodriguez; City Manager Henrietta Turner, City Attorney Louis T. Rosenberg, Interim City Secretary Monica Cordova, Cyndi Nichols of Floresville’s permits and code compliance office, and Bailiff Albert Litterio.

Might have known, he seems to be the only one we can count on! Cannot believe anyone would put him on a board after what he has done to this city. Would any of the others care to explain?????

The vote was 3-1 to approve Joslin. Who was the dissenting vote? I want to shake their hand.
