What a meeting . . . Wow, where to begin…….the citizens, residents, taxpayers and business owners of our community were again clearly told to sit down and shut up!

It is apparent that members of our local government are not listening and not hearing the Citizens much less to their own words. During the invocation the words “For the Common Good” were used. Seems they weren’t listening or hearing the invocation either.

Thank you to all who attended and spoke. Clearly all who addressed the council are in favor of the children of Floresville and Wilson County and were supportive of any actions, even debt, that insure the athletic facilities for the community’s youth are available, maintained, and safe. Our questions regarding priorities, planning, approval, and funding were answered with outright lies, misinformation, intimidation, and silence.

Although we are outraged with the actions of the Mayor, Mayor Pro Tem and Council Members Gomez and Castillo, they have set into motion our ability prevent this debt from being placed on the backs of the property tax payers of the City of Floresville. As they are unwilling to serve as representatives of the Citizens we will make them each accountable to the electorate!!

The resolution passed at last night’s meeting to publish a notice of intention to issue Certificates of Obligation starts a clock ticking! Depending upon when this notice is published we have approximately 30 days to file a petition in protest of the issuance of these certificates. The petition requires signatures of not less than 5% of the qualified voters of the City of Floresville (approximately 200 signatures). See Below: TEXAS LEGISLATIVE CODE 271.049: NOTICE OF INTENTION TO ISSUE CERTIFICATES; PETITION AND ELECTION

If presented with this petition prior to the date published for issuance of the Certificates of Obligation, the City of Floresville may not assume the debt until approved by the voters in an election (the soonest this issue could be placed on a ballot is November).

The petition is currently being circulated!!
