Border Patrol Here to Get New Buildings Two construction projects in Del Rio costing an estimated $877,000 have been submitted to Congress by the General Services Administration in Washington, a telegram from Congressman O. C. Fisher revealed. One of the construction projects would be tor a U.S. Border Patrol sector building at an estimated cost "of $535,000 and the other would be a U.S. Border Patrol station, to be built at an estimated cost of $342,000. Chief Patrol Inspector Bruce Long, in charge of the Del Rio Sector, said he had no information on the contemplated building but said he will probably receive details later. The Del Rio Sector includes approximately 120 officers with 15 • auxiliary personnel, such as clerks, stenographers, mechanics and laborers. The present headquarters building is located on Hudson Drive on a site of approximately 15 acres. Presumably the sector building would be constructed oh this site. ~"The sector is very large, extending from Jones, Shackleford and Palo Pinto Counties south of the Red River, to the north of Del Rio; west including Val Verde, Crockett, Reagan and .Nolan; east to Hamilton, Lampasas and Burnet and south to Carrizo and Crystal City areas. Possibilities were expressed that the Border Patrol station leferred to as a construction project might mean facilities at the International Bridge, where the service maintains offices. However, details were not available since the telegram from Congressman Fisher with the bare announcement was the only information to be had here.
