PHARR — Hidalgo County Judge Ramon Garcia said the county’s drainage is one of the key initiatives in his administration at last week’s State of the County where elected officials discussed the progress and goals of the region.
“A good drainage system is badly needed,” he told the audience of elected officials, including city and school officials.
Drainage is one of the three infrastructure improvements needed here, he said. The others are transportation improvements and the renovation of the historic courthouse building.
The county’s drainage advisory committee is nearing the completion of its improvement plan. The committee serves as a link between stakeholders and residents – a mix of elected officials and community and business leaders – in the development and planning of the plan, officials said.
