UPDATE: Condition of pond raises concern

A privately owned pond causes enough concern for the city to take action.

Other issues that will continue to be explored are the private dumping by citizens into the pond.

LAREDO, TX (KGNS) - Recently, a posting on social media regarding the state of the pond in front of the Laredo Energy Arena incorrectly identified the City of Laredo as the owner of that property.

That pond is privately owned by Glen Hart of Houston, owner of Laredo Energy and former owner of the Laredo Bucks. The maintenance of that pond is contracted locally by Jenny Beckelhymer, who was contacted by the City of Laredo to find out the status of the pond maintenance schedule. The company responsible for cleaning the pond was supposed to clean it Wednesday.

Tonight on KGNS News at Ten, reporter Christian von Preysing finds out the reason for the delay and gives us more on this story.
