Brownwood City Council members on Tuesday will consider approving a notice of intent to issue up to $3.9 million in tax and revenue certificates of obligation to pay for construction of two new landfill cells.
The projected cost of cells 12 and 13 is projected at just over $3.8 million, an agenda item briefing sheet for Tuesday's 9 a.m. meeting states. Construction is expected to begin in late September and the cells are projected to last 16 years.
The first step in issuing the certificates of obligation is notifying the public about the city's intent to issue bonds not to exceed $3.9 million, and Tuesday's action, if council members approve, is to authorize publication of notice in the Bulletin on Aug. 9 and 16.
Council members will consider approving the issuance of the bonds on Sept. 10.
The city proposes to spread the debt payments over 15 years, with annual payments projected at $345,000.
In other business Tuesday, council members will:
• Consider approving on second and third readings ordinances to change zoning at 1811 Shaw from R-1 Single Family Residential to A-1 Agricultural; the northwest corner of FM 45 and Indian Creek Road from A-1 Agricultural to Mo-1 Restrict Industrial; and property in the 2000 block of Indian Creek Road from R-1 Single Family Residential to C-1 Local Business.
