Hidalgo County Urban County Director Diana Serna surprised County Judge Ramon Garcia by announcing that he had been awarded the 2016 Urban County Leadership Conference during a report on the conference, which was held April 14-18.
"The conference is for community leaders to learn about funding opportunities that are available to their respective communities," Serna said.
Agencies such as USDA Rural Development, Texas Department of Transportation, Texas Department of Health and Community Affairs, Small Business Administration and the Economic Development Administration were there to advise leaders about what kind of funding is available to smaller communities.
Attendees received updates on federal legislative issues and the conference ended with a selection of the urban county leadership awardee recipient.
"Today it is my pleasure and honor to recognize the recipient of the 2016 Urban County Leadership conference award, and that is our very own Judge Ramon Garcia," Serna said, as she presented the prestigious award to the Judge.
