Tuesday was a busy day for both the City of Port Isabel and the Laguna Madre Humane Society as the two continue to work on a plan for the operation of the animal shelter. A luncheon attended by both sides led to added communication and a workshop later in the day appears to be showing signs that the two sides are working towards an agreement.
“We are talking now,” said City Manager Ed Mesa, “and that is the first step. We both are sitting down now and trying to get this worked out.”
The workshop was heavily attended by members of the community and while not near as large as a previous crowd the interest in the proceedings was just as intense. A major concern by the Humane Society Board is a lawsuit which is in place for a hearing on Monday. Both sides seemed to talk as if this would be worked out between attorneys from each side and neither had a formal comment on the suit.
