I've been silently watching this issue - and think it's important enough to write about... So here I go!
A Walmart Somewhere in Cibolo doesn't bother me. I don't like the location and think there are probably better alternatives. Rushing it and trying to move forward with giving the City Manager authority to negotiate an agreement before significant community outreach makes city leaders look greedy for tax dollars and oblivious to the citizens desires.
In this case it appears to be a calculated risk by politicians of trying to ask for forgiveness, instead of permission, and it backfired. Apparently someone didn't read the political climate very well. A recall is looming with strong support and two HOA's hired legal representation.
There is a special city council meeting at 4:00 to discuss. I will not be there - but maybe some of you will be!
