PI to match SPI to move equipment


It took a special meet­ing, a plea from the Mayor and a push from representatives from Tx­DOT (Texas Department of Transportation), but Tuesday night city of­ficials in Port Isabel ap­proved to match the funds from South Padre Island that will assist in opening up the second lane of the Queen Isabella Memorial Causeway before spring break.

Mayor Joe Vega mo­tioned at the beginning of the meeting to match the $15,000 pledged last week by the Island, but there was no second.

The Mayor reasserted his concerns and asked once again with the same result.

“This is something I think the city needs to do,” said Vega.
