After 25 years, an order approved by Aransas County commissioners, will finally be carried out.

Commissioners, at their regular meeting Monday, June 10, approved amending an Order saying Mimosa Street is to be changed honorably to Galindo Lane.

On May 25, 1994 the court approved an Order that Mimosa Street be honorably changed to Galindo Lane in honor of PFC Guadalupe Galindo, Jr.

Galindo gave his life August 24, 1969 in defense of his Country in Vietnam.

To date, the street name, or signs have not been changed as ordered.

Commissioner Bubba Casterline said he “ran across this” several weeks ago.

“I’m quite surprised someone dropped the ball one this 25 years ago,” said Casterline.
