Willacy County Navigation District owns and operates all of the property known as Port Mansfield, an area of approximately 1760 acres; the Navigation District enters into leases for both commercial and residential purposes for up to fifty (50) years. Each commercial lease will be for a described purpose and at rates that are set by the Board of Navigation and Canal Commissioners. The Port is governed by five commissioners that are elected by the voters of the District, which comprises the north 2/3 of Willacy County. Commissioners serve for 4 year terms and elections are held during even numbered years for the five staggered terms. The commissioners hold their monthly meetings in the Raymondville office on the second Wednesday at 9:00AM and a “public comment“segment is included in each agenda. The District has regulations and ordinances for the day to day governing of the town and harbor; a set is available for reference and copying purposes in the harbor office.
