Council Member Benny Martinez introduced Mr. Anthony Tobias who gave a presentation on a proposed Jazz Festival which he would like to hold in June. The proposed event would run for three (3) days, Friday, Saturday and Sunday at Raymond Rimkus Park. Mr. Tobias is looking for sponsorship from the City of Leon Valley.

The presentation was followed by a brief discussion.

A motion was made by Council Member Benny Martinez to accept the proposed event pending approval of funds by the Leon Valley Economic Development Corporation (LVEDC) noting that if the LVEDC rejects the funding, the request would be cancelled. There being no second to the motion, the motion died.

Council Member David Edwards said he would like to study the event a little more.

A motion was made by Council Member Monica Alcocer and seconded by Council Member David Edwards, to table the item to date uncertain pending further information.
