Pearland City Council on Monday voted unanimously to approve a new library services agreement with Brazoria County for the establishment of obligations for the city’s future Pearland West Side Library.
Under the agreement, the city will provide the initial library book collection, the facility, furnishings and telephone related services. The county will provide library management services, materials, personnel, supplies and computers.
The city council voted to approve a $320,000 expenditure for the purchase of books for the West Side Library.
The city council voted to amend a library services agreement with Brazoria County to extend the operation of the city’s West Side Substation Library until the new Pearland West Library branch opens for service.
The city council voted to award a $1,083,680 bid to Reddico Construction Company for construction services associated with the Cowart’s Creek Regional Detention Pump Station.
The project is part of a multi-phase project that also includes a storm water detention facility and diversion channels.
“The overall Cowart Creek project is a high priority due to current floodplain issues in the area,” City Manager Bill Eisen said. “The main benefit of the project is that it provides the detention capacity for the Bailey Road project and will significantly reduce the cost of the storm water drainage portion of the Bailey Road project. In addition, construction of the Cowart Creek Diversion project increases regional detention capacity and removes significant developable acreage from the floodplain.”
The city council voted to approve an $86,456 contract with Freese-Nichols, Inc. for engineering services associated with the Water and Sewer Impact Fee Study Update.
The city council voted to appoint Linda Cowles to the Planning and Zoning Commission. The item was discussed during an executive session.
All items were approved. All votes were unanimous with Mayor Tom Reid and Council Member Felicia Harris absent. Mayor Pro Tem Scott Sherman presided over the meeting. Agenda
