Brownwood City Council members will consider hiring an executive director for the Brownwood Municipal Development District when they meet at 9 a.m. Tuesday.
The position has been vacant since last month when Guy Andrews resigned to become economic developer for the City of San Angelo.
Brownwood Municipal Development Board (BMDD) board members will meet at 3:30 p.m. Monday to consider approving the new executive director. Council members will meet in executive session when they meet Tuesday to discuss the selection and will consider ratifying the BMDD board’s action when the council reconvenes into open session.
In other business Tuesday, council members will:
• Conduct two consecutive public hearings for a voluntary annexation request from Micam Development LLC to annex just under 110 acres into Brownwood city limits.
• Review and discuss a proposed traffic plan for Vincent Street in front of East Elementary School. No action will be taken. A come-and-go public information session will be held from 4-6 p.m. Tuesday at the school.
• Consider authorizing hot mix paving on the streets around Coggin Park and East Elementary. The total cost will be $155,500, with funds coming from the street maintenance and streets rehab funds.
• Consider authorizing the purchase of a new backup generator for the 9-1-1 system for $22,050 and approve the receipt of a grant for $20,000 toward the purchase. The existing generator has quit working and cannot be repaired.
• Consider approving an ordinance on first reading to revise the Drought Contingency Plan. The Texas Commission on Environmental Quality requires all water utilities to update conservation and drought contingency plans every five years. The major change in the Brownwood plan includes wording to allow the City Council the flexibility to encourage water conservation through temporary rates increases during a drought, if necessary.
• Consider awarding a $40,962 bid to Lydic-Hooks Roofing for the re-roofing of the City Service Center warehouse building. The roof is in poor condition and has had several patch repairs performed in previous years and continues to develop leaks when it rains. Funds for the project were included in a 2016 Certificates of Obligation.
