LAREDO, TX (KGNS) - If you were a member of the Laredo Rifle and Pistol Club, you may be interested to know the club says it's one step closer to opening. Club board members will be meeting with Webb County commissioners Wednesday.
Working out a lease will be the biggest discussion the club and county will have Wednesday. The amount of rent the club will have to pay will determine if and when the club can re-open it's doors. If they can work out a lease Wednesday, commissioners will then have to approve it at the next commission meeting. Bobby Adame is the Laredo Rifle and Pistol Club's Treasurer. He said he is hopeful.
"The Rifle Club has not had a contract with the commissioners court 8-10 years and so this contract is extensive and we hope to have something solid that we can comply with and will allow us to go back into the rifle club and start opening it up members again."
Wednesdays meeting will be between Commissioners John Galo and Mike Montemayor, board members of the gun and pistol club, the county attorney's office and the county engineer.
The club was closed by commissioners in late September, because of safety concerns. The club said it is willing to comply with the county to make the environment safer for it's members.
