Contrary to previous reports by other local newspapers, Port Isabel is not at this time seeking to annex Laguna Heights.
Port Isabel is, however, engaged in working with Laguna Vista to determine city limits.
“We’re still working with Laguna Vista in determining city boundaries,” Port Isabel Mayor Joe Vega said. “A few years back we encroached on Laguna Vista’s extra territorial jurisdiction, so they brought it to our attention that there were some areas they had annexed before Port Isabel did.”
