Prettying up downtown

Main Street Manager Michelle Treviño and city worker Victor Ortiz put snake plants as well as some donated aloe in planter beds between Washington and Madison streets downtown on Wednesday, April 1. “We are going for drought-tolerant planters,” said Trevino, noting the lack of moisture in recent weeks and a practically nonexistent wildflower season this year are not so uncommon to South Texas. “We’re just trying to pretty it up a bit around here,” she added. “Maybe when all this (COVID-19 precautions) is past, we’ll kick off a huge Spring Stroll event, as we had planned for April.”
