Fort Bend County
Fort Bend County Commissioners Court
by Garrett Bryce
Tuesday, February 14, 2012

Fort Bend County Commissioners Court today voted unanimously to approve an agreement with the City of Arcola for the build-out of an existing warehouse facility for use as a multi-purpose community center.

The county will pay $114,405 toward the project, which will be funded through Community Development Block Grant money.  The building is located to the rear of Arcola City Hall on Highway 6.

A contract for landscape maintenance for the Eugene Heiman Circle facilities was pulled from the agenda for no action.  The item will be considered further at a future meeting.

The commissioners court voted unanimously to approve a prepaid maintenance agreement with DataVox Technology Center.  The item was changed to approve a one-year agreement, as opposed to the three-year agreement proposed in the agenda.

The commissioners court voted unanimously to approve a request from ELI.FIN Development, Inc. and OMB Valves, Inc. for a delay in the construction of improvements as required under a tax abatement agreement with the county.  The delay deadline was moved from January 31, 2012 to April 30, 2012.

The development was delayed due to “an unknown and unforeseen storm water detention issue”, according to a letter from ELI.Fin Development requesting the delay.  Construction will commence in April.

The commissioners court voted unanimously to approve an amendment to a intergovernmental cooperative reimbursement agreement with the Texas Commission on Environmental Quality for operation and administration of the Low Income Vehicle Repair Assistance, Retrofit and Accelerated Vehicle Retirement Program.

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