The newly added property is in the final stages of purchase, and will go into the ‘second and final reading’ to approve the purchase on Monday, March 5 during the scheduled City Commission meeting at Port Isabel City Hall. City Manager Edward Meza said, “The purchase of the property has been approved, and on Monday we will read the resolution, stating that the city manager can sign for all the paperwork/contracts, and purchase the property.”
After the resolution, the city will close on the purchase of the property, and begin plans for the groundbreaking. City leaders have been working on this purchase with Dalor limited partnership, and have agreed to a purchase price of $550,000 USD – of which $110,000 USD, or 20 percent of the purchase price, will be paid up front. “The remaining amount will be paid over 30 years,” said Meza.
