A message from East Travis Gateway Library District:
The decision to terminate the Library District’s relationship with the Hit the Spot Cafe wasn’t one the Board took lightly, and the Board deliberated this issue at several public Board meetings. The Library was notified that Jesse Solis, owner of the Hit the Spot Café, was visited at our Garfield location by agents from the Texas Comptroller and the Sheriff's office. Conversation with those agents revealed that Mr. Solis had not been paying his sales tax and that the Comptroller’s office was planning to take action for nonpayment. These agents could not guarantee that the Library operation wouldn’t be affected by their actions and that we could lose access to the building until the issue was resolved, which could be months in duration.
The Board made the decision to terminate its relationship with the Hit the Spot Café through two unanimous votes in an effort to protect the interests of the Library. We wish Mr. Solis the best of luck in his future endeavors. As always, the Library District remains committed to serving our community; offering library services and programming that advances and enriches the lives of District residents.
