Brazoria County
Pearland City Council
by Garrett Bryce
Tuesday, March 01, 2011

Pearland City Council on Monday voted unanimously to authorize a $319,220 contract with Charles D. Gooden Consulting Engineers, Inc. for engineering services associated with the Old Alvin Waterline Project.

“The project generally includes 13,200 feet of 20-inch water line with connections to existing service lines along Old Alvin Road from McHard Road to John Lizer,” Assistant City Engineer Trent Epperson said.  “Abandonment of a 12-inch line and a 10-inch line along this alignment is also included.  The purpose of the new line is to distribute water from the Alice Street Water Plant, which receives water through the 30-inch interconnect from the City of Houston.”

The city council voted unanimously to award a $105,998 contract with Pate Engineers, Inc. for preliminary engineering services associated with the Twin Creek Regional Lift Station Project.

“Construction of the Twin Creek Regional Lift Station will replace the aged Twin Creek Waste Water Treatment Plant influent lift station and eliminate the Twin Woods and Glastonbury lift stations,” Epperson said.

The city council voted unanimously to award a $207,005 contract to GC Engineering, Inc. for a preliminary engineering report for the Cullen/FM 518 Regional Detention Pond Project.

The city council voted 4-1, with Felicia Kyle opposed, to approve the final reading of an ordinance for annexation of 117.4456 acres of land by Brazoria County Municipal Utility District No. 28.

The utility district currently consists of 638 acres of land. The property being annexed is planned for a residential development.

The city council voted unanimously to appoint Iris Benavides to serve on Position 2 and Tori Landis on Position 1 of the Library Board.

Benavides will fill an unexpired term that continues through November 1, 2013. The position was previously held by Victoria Jones. Landis will fill a term that expires on November 1 of this year that had been held by Vick Prebilsky.

An item regarding the appointment of Jason Byers to the Parks, Recreation and Beautification Board was pulled from the agenda for no action. The item will be considered at a future meeting.

A resolution authorizing the city’s continued participation in the Victims Assistance Grant through the Office of the Attorney General was pulled for no action.

The city council took no action regarding pending litigation associated with Othon Engineering. The city council also took no action regarding economic development negotiations. Both items were discussed during an executive session.

All other items were approved by unanimous vote. All members were present. Agenda
