San Antonio City Council voted to move forward with plans to spend millions on a well-known mansion. City leaders plan to buy Red Berry Mansion and the 84 acres it sits on. It won't be cheap, though. The city will shell out more than $2.2 million in tax dollars for the east side property. No official plans have been decided for mansion, but city leaders say it could be part of a larger housing development or park.
