Sugar Land City Council on Tuesday voted unanimously to award a $644,401 contract to Matula and Matula Construction, Inc. for the rehabilitation lift stations in Oyster Point, Grants Lake, Larkwood, Knights Bridge, Deer Run and Palm Royale.
The city council voted to approve, on first reading, an amendment to the FY2012 budget to revise the amount of funds received through seizures during a recent Drug Enforcement Agency investigation, in which the city participated.
The investigation resulted in the seizure of $78,485.
“Of this amount, 20 percent was shared with the police department, and funds were received in the amount of $15,680,” Assistant Chief Eric Robins said.
The funds will be used for the purchase of video equipment for the police department’s interview room.
The city council voted to approve, on first and final reading, an ordinance establishing standards of care for the city’s Summer Day Camp Program.
“The purpose is to clearly delineate that the city is providing a youth ‘program’ with a recreational purpose and not providing a ‘day care’ facility or program,” Recreation Manager Heather Bluejacket said. “As a youth program, the city will be required to apply for an exemption from the Texas Department of Family and Protective Services which regulates child-care facilities.”
A public hearing was held prior to consideration of the ordinance. No members of the public came forward to speak during the public hearing.
All items were approved. All votes were unanimous with all members present. Agenda
