Peñitas, TX – Congressman Henry Cuellar (D-TX28) along with City of Peñitas Mayor Marcos Ochoa, State Representative Oscar Longoria (D-TX35), and the United States Department of Agriculture (USDA) Rural Department State Director Paco Valentin awarded the City of Peñitas with a $2,995,000 loan, to be used towards the reconstruction of the city’s deteriorating city hall and police department.


These funds will go towards the construction of a new city hall and police station which is needed to expand city operations.

“I am very proud of the progress and leadership that the City Of Peñitas, city administration and council have shown these past few years,” said Oscar Longoria (D-TX35). “With access to this new capital, the city will have the opportunity to expand and construct new city buildings to accommodate personnel and public access for the tremendous growth they have experienced as of late. I would like to thank Congressman Henry Cuellar, State USDA Director Paco Valentin and all the USDA and city staff for all the hard work that made all of this possible. As we move forward, I urge the City Of Peñitas to look into the future and continue the great work they have been doing. I look forward to breaking ground and ribbon cutting in the years to come. Congratulations.”
