Webb County Making a Lease for the Laredo Rifle & Pistol Club

LAREDO It's been a long five months for the Laredo Rifle and Pistol Club members.
The club was shut down by Webb County in September, and they are still unsure about reopening their doors.
Webb County has drawn up a new lease for the club, but club board members are unsure if they can accept it.
The lease is ten pages long and club board members are unsure about some things on the lease.
The club used to pay $115 a year for rent.
They said they realize that is an unrealistic amount but now the rent the county wants on the lease is unclear.
The exact reading on the lease is, "thousand four hundred eleven dollars and ten cents" a month.
But board members are unsure what to make of the blank space before the word thousand.
"So it will be blank thousand and some odd dollars. Right now we have no money. We have to start selling memberships again. And so we would hope that the final contract will take this into consideration and work with the club."
Club Treasurer Bobby Adame said he does understand the county's concern with the range because it went without liability insurance for almost two years.
The club currently has a lawyer looking at the contract.
They should know more on Friday as to whether or not the club can afford to reopen it's doors.
Because the club needs security there, if the club does re open it's doors, they said they might have to save money by limiting the range hours.
