La Feria City council approved a proclamation declaring Aug. 9 National Night Out during its last meeting held Tuesday, July 24.

City Manager Jaime Sandoval said law enforcement agencies from several entities will be on hand during the event, including the U.S. Border Patrol, Immigration & Customs Enforcement as well as Emergency Medical Services.

Officers with La Feria Police Department will be handing out the goodies.
