4A proposes bigger board

FLORESVILLE -- The Floresville 4A Corp. board, which oversees the Lauro G. De Leon III Floresville Event Center on S.H. 97, could soon increase in size from five to seven members. The board, at its Feb. 20 meeting, voted unanimously to amend a section of the corporation’s bylaws that relates to the group’s size.
The 4A corporation’s attorney, Rob Killen, said that state law requires the board of a Type A economic development corporation to have a minimum of five members. There is no maximum size.
Also during the meeting, the board voted to select Melissa Popham as its president. Former President Bill Gleeson now will serve as vice president. Nominations for secretary and treasurer were tabled.
In other business, the board met for one hour in closed session with Killen and with attorney Michael Gavito of Gravely & Pearson to discuss the status of the corporation’s lawsuit against Greco Construction. Nothing was mentioned of the litigation when the board reconvened in open session.
The 4A corporation in 2012 filed a suit against Greco in the 218th Judicial District Court, in which it seeks to recover damages from Greco related to roof leaks and other perceived deficiencies within the center’s structure. Court documents reveal that Greco blames the issues on a subcontractor. A civil trial is set for later this year.
In attendance: Board members Bill Gleeson, LeAnn Drozd, Melissa Popham, and Andy Joslin; attorney Rob Killen of Kaufman & Killen, attorney Michael Gavito of Gravely & Pearson, Floresville City Manager Henrietta Turner, and administrative assistant Gloria Estrada Martinez of the Lauro G. De Leon III Floresville Event Center.
