WESLACO – County leaders broke ground for the new Hidalgo County Precinct 1 substation offices Wednesday morning.

The office will be located at 1902 Joe Stephens Avenue in Weslaco.
Hidalgo County Pct 1 Commissioner David Fuentes said they had already set aside funding for a new building about two years ago.
