FLORESVILLE -- The Floresville Parks Foundation Committee is considering a request to help the city purchase mowers for its parks department, according to President Doug Jones following the committee’s Aug. 20 meeting. The committee could recommend that $15,000 be allocated toward the expenditure.

Jones said City Manager Henrietta Turner presented some of the concerns raised during a city council budget workshop the night before, in which it was revealed that city workers are down to just one functioning mower.

However, Jones said, the committee would like to see Turner work with the parks department to create a long-term plan for the city’s parks.

This is the first meeting the committee has held since recent notification from the U.S. Internal Revenue Service that its status as a 501(c)(3) nonprofit corporation has been reinstated. Jones and other members of the committee have worked for more than a year to address issues such as tax liability status, state certification to conduct business, and various financial ambiguities. Now that the final hurdle has been cleared, Jones is hopeful that Floresville will embrace the foundation and its goal of enhancing the city’s parks.

As city water consumers, we each pay $1 per month for a Parks fee that is included in our City water bill. At the very minimum, there are 3,000 customers. Where does that $36,000 per year go to?
