The General and Special Charter Amendment election in Laguna Vista culminates here on Saturday.

Voting will be conducted on May 5 from 7 a.m.-7 p.m. at City Hall. Early voting ended Tuesday.

On the ballot for the Place 5 position is Councilman Victor Worrell and challenger Abel Delgadillo.

Two other incumbents, Rolando Gonzalez who holds the place 4, and Nadine Smith who has the Place 6 seat on the Town Council, are unopposed in their bids for election to the Board.

The Special Election was called to consider a proposed amendment to the Town’s Home Rule Charter to spell-out boundaries and uses of the Town’s marina.

At issue is the long-standing dispute over the Town-owned marina which is by lease, operated by the Laguna Vista Recreation Association (LVRA). Officials have worked for the past two years to reach a resolution that would extend the lease.
