FLORESVILLE -- While the city of Floresville continues its transition to new leadership, the city council, at its Jan. 10 meeting, has appointed members to its ordinance and audit committees.
The appointments will feature a mix of city councilmen and the relevant boards and city staff. Appointments include:

The audit committee will work to direct an independent auditor as to the scope of the city’s annual audit. The group also will receive the report before presenting it to the city council after the audit has been completed.
Also at the meeting, the city council heard quarterly updates from various committees, including the 4A corporation, Floresville Economic Development Corp., Planning and Zoning Commission, the city’s Parks Foundation, municipal court, and Allied Waste, as well as updates on the street maintenance plan.
