SAN ANTONIO (Oct. 17) — Today City Council voted to approve a $287,554.80 contract for improvements to Gilbert Garza Park as part of the 2017 Bond.
"Our neighbors in Culebra Park have struggled against crime and poverty for years," said Councilwoman Ana E. Sandoval. "To them, these park improvements will offer more than just additional shade on hot days—they offer a chance to establish a central gathering place where they can come together as a community. That's why I am proud to see this project moving forward."
