Hundreds And Hundreds

City officials went to Austin three days in January: the 23rd through the 25th.  They met with people, and more people.  And then they had a nice reception with hundreds of attendees.

Of course, it was at a swanky place, the Intercontinental Stephen F. Austin Hotel.  Must be nice.

UPDATE: 3/3/2017  KGNS reports on expenses made by City of Laredo.  

Money for expenses, according to the city, comes from departmental travel budgets, the Convention & Visitors Bureau, and private donations.  KGNS reported that 28 city employees went on the trip, as well as all of city council, except Roberto Balli.  

$8,683 was spent on materials and supplies.  The itemized report provided by the City of Laredo included: $935 for souvenirs; $3,660 for ceramic bowls; and $4,088 for candies for trays and other supplies.
