Kudos to to the County Attorney, Russell Wilson who through this lawsuit against the City Manager - Andy Joslin, got the City of Floresville to admit that the historical numbers presented in their budgets WERE WRONG and to FIX THE NUMBERS!

On December 27, 2011 the City Attorney filed a Revised Budget Worksheet with the District Court. On January 12, 2012, the attorneys, auditors and city officials met to review these documents. Russell Wilson was convinced that the numbers presented in this Revised Budget Worksheet accurately reflected the audits of FY 2007/2008, 2008/2009, and 2009/2010 (As of this morning, the City of Floresville has yet to post this on their website). As a result the actions demanded of the City of Floresville in the lawsuit were completed and the County Attorney withdrew the lawsuit.

Again, we applaud the County Attorney for his actions and fortitude in this matter.

These updated numbers with their adjustments lead to several questions, not limited to:

1) Why did it take over five months for this to occur? Why were Citizens, Taxpayers, and Business Owners told that they were wrong, did not understand, and to sit down and shut up? Why did no investigation into these numbers occur until a lawsuit was filed by the County Attorney?

2) Why were the Citizens, Taxpayers and Business Owners the only ones to see these OBVIOUS DISCREPANCIES IN THE NUMBERS? Who at the City is responsible for reviewing these numbers for accuracy and why was it not done?

2) How wrong were the numbers?
-- I have compared the approved budget on the City's Website to this Revised Budget Worksheet:

OVER $5.1 MILLION IN ADJUSTMENTS WERE MADE FOR THESE THREE FISCAL YEARS!!!

Some of what this Revised Budget Worksheet revealed about the historical numbers presented in the City's Budget approved on 8/25/2011 by a unanimous vote of the City Council:

Tax Revenue was OVER REPORTED by $1,418,217.00

Transfers to the General Fund from the Water/Sewer Fund, Refuse Fund, and CAPITAL PROJECTS (a.k.a. CAPITAL RESERVES) were UNDER REPORTED by $2,110,974.00 ($883,096 from the Reserves of the CIty).

Administrative Expenses were UNDER REPORTED by $199,608.00

Streets Expenses were UNDER REPORTED by $676,561

$5.1 Million in required adjustments to the City's books represents MATERIAL MISSTATEMENTS of Revenue, Expenses and Other City Funds. As a result of the actions of the County Attorney, documents filed in the District Court by the City Attorney, and the most recent actions of the City the charges of incompetence, misconduct or malfeasance state in the Petition to Recall Them All have been validated!
