Weslaco Announces Cleaning Budget Still Available
WESLACO – The city of Weslaco said it still has 50 percent of its cleaning budget left after taking on a couple of big projects.
About three weeks ago, an alley was in bad shape compared to how it was on Thursday.
Joe Pedraza with the Code Enforcement Department told CHANNEL 5 NEWS they still have available funds after several clean sweep events.
“The bulk of it is pretty much labor, city staff labor. I believe with both events just in overtime itself was close to $11,000,” he said.
The city currently has two code enforcement officers who investigate and monitor illegal dump sites.
Pedraza said the department received 5,400 calls for service last year.
