Tommy Baker, executive director of the Floresville Economic Development Corp. (FEDC), has asked the Floresville City Council to consider a trade in which the corporation would jettison some of its properties in exchange for office rent. Baker addressed the council about the proposal at its July 24 meeting.

The FEDC would trade the following properties in exchange for no-charge rent and continuous occupancy of its current City Hall office for 8 years, 4 months:

•The Beer Warehouse, corner of C and South Second streets

•The former San Antonio-Aransas Pass railroad depot, Trail Street

•Floresville Skate Park, corner of Sixth and A streets

•12.49 acres of the Northcrest Community Park

•0.019 acres on Peach Street near Goliad Road

•0.56 acres at 800 Plum St.

The council took no action, because Baker’s item was listed for presentation and discussion. However, City Attorney Louis T. Rosenberg suggested that City Manager Henrietta Turner should develop a plan and present it to the council as part of its upcoming budget workshops.

Turner presented her proposal for the upcoming fiscal year’s budget, which totaled slightly less than $8.3 million. The first workshop, set for July 29, she said, would include a discussion of the city’s insolvency plan with City Auditor Patricia K. Wagner. Financial Advisor Victor Quiroga is scheduled to attend the subsequent workshop to discuss Floresville’s bonds before the council works to craft a spending plan.

Turner said she is proposing a 1-percent increase for employee salaries. However, salary increases for officers of the Floresville Police Department will be greater, due to the Floresville Police Officers Association’s collective bargaining agreement.

In other business, the council:

•Voted 4-1 -- with Councilman Eric Rodriguez casting the dissenting vote -- to cancel the request for creation of a committee to review Floresville’s home-rule charter.

•Voted to approve the early voting schedule ahead of the Nov. 4 general election. City Hall will be open for voting Oct. 20-31 from 8 a.m. to 5 p.m. On Oct. 24 and Oct. 29, voting will continue until 8 p.m.
