CORPUS CHRISTI - INGLESIDE - A federal official on Monday told members of the Ingleside Local Redevelopment Authority they must resolve complaints about the makeup of its board before it can get federal recognition.

The American GI Forum's Johnny Canales International Chapter in Robstown mailed letters three weeks ago to Secretary of Defense Robert Gates and Patrick O’Brien, the executive director of the Office of Economic Adjustment, the federal agency established to assist communities affected by base closure or realignment.

Chapter members said in the letter that Hispanics were underrepresented in the 11-member implementation Ingleside Local Redevelopment Authority, the group charged with redeveloping 155 surplus acres of base land when then Navy leaves. Naval Station Ingleside is scheduled to close on April 30 as a result of the 2005 Base Realignment and Closure round.
