From emergency communications to economic development, some things just make sense for collaboration at the regional level, and the Middle Rio Grande Development Council helps make that happen every day. Formed in 1970 and one of 24 councils of governments in Texas, MRGDC for more than 49 years has served as an advocate, planner and coordinator on important regional issues in the 9-county area.
The MRGDC bylaws state the purpose of the council and define how it is organized and managed. Included within the bylaws are MRGDC's regulations for its membership, representation of the MRGDC General Assembly, and the selection and powers of the MRGDC Executive Committee. It also defines the MRGDC Executive Director’s authority and outlines some fiscal responsibilities of the council.
