The board of directors for the South Padre Island Tax Increment Reinvestment Zone (TIRZ) gathered for the first time in a year during a meeting held last Wednesday, Feb. 7.
Board members present included Mayor Dennis Stahl, Mayor Pro-Tem Paul Munarriz, and Council Members Theresa Metty, Alita Bagley and Ken Medders.
After voting to approve the minutes of their February 2017 meeting, the Board moved to appoint a chair and vice chair to serve a one year term on the TIRZ board. Stahl was appointed as chair, and Munarriz was approved as vice chair.
SPI Assistant City Manager Darla Jones presented a summary of the TIRZ report to the Board. “Basically we had a very good year for the TIRZ,” summarized Jones.
