SAN ANTONIO -

On Wednesday, the Alamo Area Council Of Governments board of directors placed both the executive director and deputy executive director on paid administrative leave.

The board also authorized a third-party entity to initiate a fact-finding review of the relationship between AACOG and TriHM Foundation.

Finally, the board directed its legal counsel, the firm of Denton Navarro Rocha Bernal Hyde & Zech, P.C., to begin legal proceedings to terminate its tenant lease agreement with TriHM Foundation and initiate efforts to recoup unpaid rents and costs associated with its existing lease agreement with TriHM.

In keeping with its mission, AACOG will continue to provide the same level of service that the public and its member governments have come to expect.

AACOG is a voluntary association of local governments and organizations organized pursuant to Chapter 391, Texas Local Government Code as a regional planning commission. It serves the Alamo Area State Planning Region 18, which is composed of Atascosa, Bandera, Bexar, Comal, Frio, Gillespie, Guadalupe, Karnes, Kendall, Kerr, McMullen, Medina, and Wilson counties.”
