FLORESVILLE -- The Floresville Economic Development Corp. is helping to put a new face on the building that houses City Cleaners and Curves on Third Street here. At its June 9 meeting, the FEDC board voted unanimously to award up to $7,500 in matching funds for the building’s owners to renovate its façade.

Leona Maples, who said she has owned the building since 1989. It formerly housed the Lable Stable and Maple Tree. Maples said she wants its exterior to complement the Wilson County Courthouse, located across the street. She said she wanted to spruce things up after seeing the ongoing façade work being performed next door at the Arcadia Theatre -- which was the first recipient this year of an FEDC façade grant. (See “FEDC pledges $30K for renovation projects,” Jan. 22.)

The current painted wood façade on Curves and the cleaners was part of a downtown revitalization project undertaken during the tenure of former FEDC Executive Director Jesse Perez. In addition to painting facades to give the downtown a more historic aesthetic, Alazan Construction also replaced awnings on buildings on C and Third streets.

However, the wood applied to the exterior of Maples’ building is rotting and falling down, which is why her daughter, Stacy, said stucco will be applied in its place.

The FEDC’s grant to Leona Maples is part of its commitment to allocate $30,000 in aid this fiscal year to Floresville businesses. Those wishing to benefit from the program are asked to submit proposals before making presentations to the FEDC’s seven-member board.

Also during the meeting, the board:

•Received a report of its fiscal year 2013 financial audit -- which was part of the city of Floresville’s overall audit -- from accountant Pat Wagner, who reported no material weakness or deficiencies.

•Learned of Dallas-based investment group Blue Steer’s interest in building detention ponds in the El Rancho Grande Industrial Park in exchange for 23.77 acres of land there. The ponds, required to prevent flooding of those located downstream of the park, would otherwise cost an estimated $700,000.

In attendance: Board members Andy Eubanks, David Johns, Ray Lamberth, Mary Helen Tieken, Jason Talley, Raymond “Ram” Ramirez, and Roland Castro; Executive Director Tommy Baker, and Floresville City Manager Henrietta Turner.

That's nice.. does that mean the cost of cleaning will come back down? I recently stayed at a Marriott Resort and brought home the hotel's dry-cleaning price list for my wife to see. It was cheaper to get stuff cleaned at ... More ›
