Brownwood City Council members will consider approving approving work by Waldrop Construction and its subcontractors to improve the ride quality on the section of Fourth Street that Waldrop rebuilt last year.
    The council meets at 9 a.m. Tuesday.
    Waldrop was awarded a $528,809 bid to lay new pavement on Fourth Street from Coggin Avenue to Avenue K. After Waldrop completed the project, ride quality did not meet the standards established in contract documents, an agenda item briefing sheet states.
    At Waldrop’s expense, the company proposes to:
    • Hire a diamond grinding company (Penhall) to plane the driving surface.
    • Replace the striping and raised pavement markings.
    • Hire a consultant to verify the new surface passes ride quality standards as statement in the specifications.
    In other business Tuesday, council members will:
    • Consider ordering a May 5 election for the positions of mayor and Ward 1 and Ward 4 council members.
    • Consider ratification of the Brownwood Firemen’s Relief and Retirement Fund Board of Trustees election of a new citizen board member.
    • Consider amending the current Brownwood Professional Firefighter Association Meet and confer contract.
    • Consider authorizing the mayor to new a lease agreement with the Brownwood Bowhunting Association for a three-year term for a 63-acre tract on FM 45 South.
    • Consider authoring the police department to apply for a state grant.
    • Consider awarding a bids for a three-year agriculture lease and a three-year hunting lease, both on FM 45 West.
    • Consider authorizing the city manager to sign an agreement with the Texas Department of Agriculture Texans Feeding Texans: Home Delivered Meal Grant Program.
