Kemah City Council on Wednesday voted 3-0-1, with Matt Wiggins abstaining, to move forward on the development of a hotel conference center and to take action to make the city eligible under recently-approved state legislation for additional sales tax and hotel occupancy tax revenues in the area surrounding the future convention center for a period of ten years.

House Bill 2445, which was approved during the 85th Legislative Session, allows cities to pledge tax revenue for the repayment of oblications related to hotel and hotel and convention center projects.

The city will issue requests for qualifications for a developer/operator of the convention center. The city also selected Allen Boone Humphries Robinson, LLP as legal consultants on the project.

The city council voted unanimously to take no action regarding matters with the Gulf Coast Center concerning funds advanced pursuant to an agreement with the proposed city parking garage.

The city council took no action regarding any necessary budget amendments.

All other items were approved by unanimous vote. Council Member Robin Collins was absent. Agenda
