MARBLE FALLS — Thanks to almost $100,000 from the Economic Development Corp., the city will be able to buy land for a new visitors center at the gateway to Marble Falls, officials said.

The city is also looking at overhauling animal ordinances, including one that would limit how many pets can live in a household and help control wild animals such as feral hogs.

As part of plans to build the new visitors center, which will be managed by the Marble Falls/Lake LBJ Chamber of Commerce, the City Council July 5 agreed to transfer $99,500 from the EDC budget.
