A meet and greet was held on Thursday evening to meet the three finalist for the community's new Economic Development Corp director and a decision could come by Friday.

From 24 applicants to three finalists, each with their unique successes, board members said. On Thursday, the public was invited to city hall to meet:

Vicki Hughes of Naylor, Ga; Janet Miller of Laredo and Warren Ketteman of Buda, Texas.

"It's been a pretty good process," said Ike Ornelas, EDC board member.

EDC president Ralph Gomez said the process will come to an end soon with the interview taking place Friday.

"We hope to have someone very, very soon," he said.
