CALEXICO, Calif. (KYMA, KECY) - The City of Calexico announced the re-opening of Carnegie Library which has been closed for about two years, and Heber Park.

The City also applied for two state grants.

One is for $10 million to renovate Kiki Camarena Library and $5 million for Heber Park.

The Mayor of Calexico said the city is still from financial struggles after they had to make repairs due to a major storm last October.

Including repairs for Fire Station #2.

“We had a very difficult fiscal year. We are about to end this June 30th, we have been able to make strong commitments towards social activities, recreation, and our library programs," stated Calexico Mayor Raul Ureña.

The city also announced its new summer programs, including pride month activities, as well as a pool that's free of charge.

The summer programs are set to start next week.
