The January 12, 2017 Membership meeting of the Del Rio Hispanic Chamber of Commerce was hosted by the City of Del Rio. The presentations by the City Manager Mr. Henry Arredondo and the Honorable Mayor Robert Garza were well received by those in attendance. An overview of all major projects presently in progress is an indication of the positive development that is taking place in our community. Mayor Garza also spoke of the importance and the impact that having commercial air service out of Del Rio has for attracting potential businesses and commercial enterprises.
As a Chamber of Commerce, we understand the need for improvement projects that make our community attractive to commercial as well as to residential growth. As individual citizens, our power and responsibility are to support progressive municipal undertakings and realize that today’s inconveniences represent improvements for tomorrow.
