CORPUS CHRISTI, TX – At today’s regularly scheduled City Council meeting, Mayor Paulette Guajardo and the City Council approved a $7.8 million construction contract to Clark Pipeline Services, LLC for the reconstruction of Leopard Street from the Crosstown Expressway to Palm Drive, a project located in Council District 1.
