EDINBURG – People living in the Edinburg area and precinct four of Hidalgo County have a chance to learn about where your tax dollars are being used. 

Hidalgo County leaders will be putting on a series of town hall meetings, and the first one will happen Wednesday night. 

Hidalgo County Commissioner Joseph Palacios will be talking about improvements throughout Pct. 4. Flooding was a big issue in 2015, and since then multiple projects were completed on drainage and road repairs. 

This will be an opportunity for residents to learn about the projects and ask questions. In addition, county leaders will talk about the county's tax rate cut and economic development.

"It's to give exposure for taxpayers so we can tell them what county government is doing to them," Palacios said. "We want to present our comprehensive budget on how we are going to continue in doing this while still addressing major projects like the courthouse and some of the others." 

The town hall will start at 6 p.m. at UTRGV in Edinburg, 1201 West University Drive inside the Student Union Theatre.
