Mayor Melissa Northern, council members Al Filidoro, Steve Lyda and Mark Wise and planning and zoning commissioner Jeff Whittaker recently filed for a specific purpose action committee to make a push to get the renewal passed, called "Flower Mound Yes!."
"It cost us $4,000 to send out the literature, and we have only collected $3,075," Filidoro said. "So we'll be paying the rest out of our pockets. But that's because community leaders lead. What is everyone else doing?"
Filidoro said businesses had discussed this idea with the mayor a while back.
"We didn't approach the businesses. They approached us," Filidoro said. "A lot of this started happening at the Texas Municipal League [TML] Conference."
