Brazoria County
Brazoria County Commissioners Court
by Garrett Bryce
Thursday, September 29, 2011

Brazoria County Commissioners Court on Tuesday voted unanimously to adopt regulations for the beaches of the county.

The regulations include definitions of litter, prohibition of motor vehicle traffic on any natural or man-made sand dune or other form of shoreline protection, and affirms a previous court order prohibiting glass containers and products on the beaches.

The commissioners court voted unanimously to adopt a resolution in support of the re-opening of the San Bernard River.

According to the resolution, the closure of the original mouth of the river “is having some serious negative impacts on the Gulf Intracoastal Waterway and its safe, efficient operation by causing increased currents at the Brazos Floodgates at levels that hinder tow passage”. Resolution

The commissioners court voted unanimously to approve a lump sum expenditure of $7,500 and additional reimbursable expenses for the creation of a County Road Atlas by Brown and Gay Engineers, Inc.

The atlas will be created on the county's server and maintained by county personnel.

The commissioners court voted unanimously to award a construction management services contract to HDR Engineering, Inc. for the County Road 257 Bluewater Highway Road Repair and Shoreline Stabilization Project.

The commissioners court voted unanimously to cancel a proposal for museum exterior restorations and repair due to the proposal submitted exceeding the funds budgeted for the project.

The project will be resubmitted for the receipt of new proposals.

The commissioners court voted unanimously to reject bids on the Village of Surfside Beach Water Plant Improvement Project through the Disaster Recovery Program administered by the Texas General Land Office.

The bids received were in excess of the amount of funds budgeted for the project. The project will be revised and re-bid at a later date.

The commissioners court discussed the 2011 Grievance Committee. However, no recommendations had been made by the committee, and no action was taken on the item.

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