Port Lavaca gets new interim city manager focusing on rebuilding

Posted: Updated:

At the Bayfront in Port Lavaca the pier was almost completely washed away after Harvey. Port Lavaca's new interim city manager says his focus is rebuilding structures like these and the marina to bring in revenue.

Port Lavaca's new interim city manager William Dilibero says the marinas need the most work in Port Lavaca. Just recently, the Texas General Land Office removed boats from the marina, but there are still boats left. He says its always a longer process to remove and repairs structures in and around water.

With oyster season coming up, its a priority to fix the piers and marinas for the boats to get in and out.

Dilibero says council has just approved firms to continue the rebuilding process.

Another major concern is the Bauer Community Center, which has been closed due to Harvey damages.

City manager believes construction and repairs should take another couple of months.

Dilibero says the RV park at lighthouse beach should be open soon just in time for winter Texans.
