Brazoria County
Brazoria County Commissioners Court
by Garrett Bryce
Wednesday, August 10, 2011

Brazoria County Commissioners Court on Tuesday voted unanimously to grant a tax abatement to Ascend Performance Materials, LLC.

The county will abate 100 percent of property taxes for Ascend Performance Materials for a period of seven years.

The abatement agreement will be combined with a tax abatement granted to Cyanco International, LLC, which was approved on July 12.

A public hearing was held prior to approval of the item.

The commissioners court voted to reappoint Pearland Mayor Tom Reid to the Tax Abatement Review Committee for an additional two-year term.

The commissioners court voted to grant permission to Dole Fresh Fruit Company to use and occupy the Brazoria County Fairgrounds for the temporary staging of equipment in the event of a major storm evacuation event.

The commissioners court voted to cancel a bid for the Treasure Island Water Plant Improvements Project due to the bids received on the project being over the budgeted amount.  The county will modify the project design to reduce costs and re-bid the project at a future date.

The commissioners court voted to approve a settlement with J.E. Dunn, Johnston LLC, Alan Johnston and Hostetler Johnson LLC.  The item was discussed during an executive session.

All items were approved.  All votes were unanimous with all members present.  Agenda
