Sept. 22: Council set to adopt budget


“This is the worst budget I have ever seen...”

After a three hour workshop, Pearsall city councilors voted to approve the proposed 2019-20 fiscal year budget on Monday, August 26.

The Monday meeting was the fourth workshop council held as they combed through the budget in an effort to understand operational costs, eliminate and add positions, and restructure healthcare.

“This is my eleventh budget I go through,” Councilor Roland Segovia said during a meeting on Tuesday, August 20. “Six as mayor, four as council, and now five and this is the worst budget I have ever seen. We just spent two-and-a-half hours on the third meeting and we didn’t get nothing accomplished.”
