Brazoria County
Pearland City Council
by Garrett Bryce
Tuesday, July 25, 2017

Pearland City Council on Monday voted unanimously to award a $1,538,265 contract to C. A. Walker Construction for construction services associated with the Orange Street Service Center Field Operations Support Building Renovation Project.

The project is part of a larger, multi-phase project to upgrade, modernize and consolidate facilities at the Orange Street Service center, which was originally an EMS building.

The construction contract includes renovation and remodel of approximately 5,300 square feet of interior space.

The city council voted 5-1, with Keith Ordeneaux opposed, to approve, on first reading, an ordinance consenting to the creation of Brazoria County Municipal Utility District No. 69, within the city's corporate boundaries.

The district is being created as part of an agreement with the Massey Oaks development.

The city council voted 4-1-1, with Derrick Reed opposed and Ordeneaux abstaining, to approve, on first reading, an ordinance establishing school speed zone limits.

The ordinance consolidates multiple ordinances that had established 25 school zones within the city limits.
The city council voted 4-2, with Reed and Ordeneaux opposed, to approve, on final reading, an ordinance changing the zoning of property from a Single-Family Estate District to a Planned Development District for the Massey Oaks subdivision.

The city council voted unanimously to approve the purchase of eight police vehicles, in the amount of $345,536, from Silsbee Ford.

The city council took no action resulting from executive session discussions regarding pending litigation with the Blue Ridge Landfill and discussions related to the construction of public facilities.

All other action items were approved by unanimous vote. Council Member Woody Owens was absent. Agenda
