    Just in time for the summer heat leaders in Hidalgo County are unveiling a new sports park. The grand opening for the county's indoor sports complex in Pharr was held on Wednesday May 1. Several leaders were in attendance including Pct. 2 Commissioner Eddie Cantu.

    The complex will provide indoor, air conditioned baseball and softball facilities to residents free of charge. "It'll benefit obviously the kids, coaches, and parents that are participating in baseball, softball, and they are able to register online," Cantu said. "And everyone is able to use the facility for free." The County has also hired a baseball coach to oversee the facility and offer free one-on-one hitting lessons.

  • Grand Opening - Regional Detention Facility

    Hidalgo County Precinct 1 Commissioner David L. Fuentes joined by Drainage District 1 General Manager Raul E. Sesin and City of Weslaco Mayor David Suarez in breaking ground on a critical drainage project at 10 a.m. Wednesday on Mile 9 Road and FM 1015 in Weslaco.

    “This project was identified as one of the most important in order to facilitate drainage during flood events in Weslaco,” said Fuentes. “This couldn’t come at a better time as we prepare for Hurricane Season in June.” Funding for the project was included in the $190 million Drainage District bond approved by voters in November. The total project cost is estimated at $10.6 million and will begin with the construction of detention ponds for the Las Brisas and Chapa subdivisions and Onyx Drive neighborhoods, which were among the most impacted during the 500-year rain event in June 2018.
