GONZALES, TX – The Gonzales Economic Development Corporation (GEDC) board of directors received a report from Southwest Engineers at its October board meeting. The study, commissioned by the corporation in October 2020, was done to address water pressure issues that are impeding growth in the Industrial Park and some properties in the northern portion of the community. The study includes pressure plane scenarios for the entire City of Gonzales and sets forth a plan for future capital improvement projects.
The study is a recommendation from the Gonzales Economic Development Expansion/Enhancement Committee (GEDEEC.) This was a committee comprised of GEDC, GVEC, City of Gonzales, Gonzales County officials, and the Gonzales Area Development Corporation. The GEDEEC met in 2019 with the vision to guide growth for the future through collaboration and planning.
The water plane study has now been handed over to the City Manager, Tim Patek and will be presented to the City Council.
