Remodeling of City Hall

Floresville’s City Hall is currently being prepared for remodeling. As part of the USDA Grant obtained for our water system upgrades, we must become ADA compliant as well as meet all current safety codes. This ensures that every city building is safe and handicap accessible. As anyone who has visited City Hall may have noticed, the building has received few upgrades since being acquired in 1996. Be assured, although these upgrades are required, City Council is dedicated to keeping costs low. As this project goes out for bidding soon, be on the lookout for updates.

In the interim city offices have been moved next door into portable buildings and they offer all the services we had in City Hall.

If you have any questions before your next visit, you can call ahead of time to (830) 393-3105.

Utility Rates Explained

Due to the aging water and sewer infrastructure, it became necessary for the City Council to increase the water and sewer rates. The increase was necessary to cover rising operating, maintenance, costs for electricity, chemicals, materials and equipment. The rate increase will also cover the USDA construction costs associated with a 40-year low interest loan. The USDA construction projects will upgrade the aging utilities infrastructure, facilities and will comply with the TECQ, state and federal regulatory requirements.

As Mayor, I want to provide the information to you the customers. Following a rate study, it was determined that the water and sewer rates did not provide sufficient revenues needed to support operations, maintenance and improvements to the City utilities. Therefore, new rates were required to be implemented. The new rates are as follows:

Residential Water Inside City Limits
(Ordinance No. 2016-023)
First 3,000 gallons $24.90
3,001-12,000 gallons $3.40 per thousand
12,001 gallons $3.40 per thousand

Residential Water Outside City Limits
(Ord. No. 2016-023)
First 3,000 gallons $42.60
3,001-12,000 gallons $6.15 per thousand
12,001 gallons $6.15 per thousand

Residential Sewer Rates
(Ord. No. 2015-032)
Flat rate:
2017 ($34.32)
2018 ($35.01)
2019 ($35.71)

In the spirit of better communication, the City of Floresville will be providing water bills with clear, easy-to-understand information to customers. Additionally, we will be revamping our communication to be polite, courteous, and respectful—all in an effort to provide better customer service. We want to make these efforts as a means to raise awareness, and educate customers on this important and critical information that effects your daily lives.
