Special City Council Meeting Commentary – Part Two

Following the agenda was obviously not the plan by the Mayor.

Agenda Item 2 C&A to request the Executive Director (not present) and Board of the Floresville Economic Development Corporation (Fred Gonzalez was the only Board member present) to work with the City Manager to develop and implement (without further Council input) alternative methods for funding the Recreation/Sports Complex with the advise and counsel of bond counsel (also not present) and financial advisor (also not present).

As I stated in Part One, the Mayor, from his microphone, yelled at the Citizens present about the NEED for a Sports Complex and all but dismissed the legal and certified petition that the Council accepted on May 14th as it only was representative of 5% of the community. Furthermore, the Mayor stated that if this issue went to the ballot there was a possibility that it wound not pass. As such the City needed to find alternative funding methods.

Both Council members Guerrero and Morones spoke to the lack of a plan by the City. Council member Gomez stated that the plan is there as “We have all talked about it”. When asked about a Feasibility Study, the Mayor stated that one had been completed by Mr. Longoria of Beeville. (Odd, I thought he was person who we paid nearly $10,000 to meet with the Little Leagues to determine what they wanted –How is that a feasibility study?)

Council member Gomez stated that all of the other needs of the City had been addressed and funded and that we now need a Sports Complex!

Really? Didn’t the City Manager state at the last Budget Workshop that the Water Model was to be put on the Wish List for the next budget cycle? Do we have a real number for the costs of the Waste Water Plant Expansion, not the 5 year old guestimate that is in the City Manager’s “Capital Improvement Plan” dated pre 2009? Do we have firm dates for utilizing the Street Maintenance Sales Tax in conjunction with the “Priorities” identified by M&S Engineering in the City’s so-called 10-Year Master Plan? Councilman Gomez, wake up! Just because you say it doesn’t make it so! And just because Danny told you that it was true also doesn’t make it a fact!

It is apparent that the City does NOT HAVE A PLAN!

It is also apparent that the City just WANTS THE PEOPLES MONEY and THEY DON’T WANT THE PEOPLE TO HAVE A SAY IN IT!

Yes Danny, SALES TAXES ARE TAXES!
