Senator Zaffirini Announces Funding for Webb County Improvements

(AUSTIN) —Senator Judith Zaffirini, D-Laredo, announced today (Friday) that
Webb County will receive a $420,000 grant from the Texas Community
Development Block Grant Program (TxCDBG). The grant will allow Webb County
to contract for the drilling of a new water well in Mirando City and the expansion of
the fire station located between Oilton and Bruni.

“The Office of Rural Community Affairs (ORCA) was established to administer
these funds and to provide these critical services to local communities,” Senator
Zaffirini said. “I am delighted that Webb County will use these funds to enhance
water service and fire protection, thereby improving greatly public health and safety
for Quad Cities constituents.”

TxCDBG is administered by ORCA for the U.S. Department of Housing and Urban
Development.
