Brazoria County
Pearland City Council
by Garrett Bryce
Tuesday, August 15, 2017

Pearland City Council on Monday voted unanimously to award a $1,263,352 construction contract to AR Turnkee Construction Co. for the Green Tee 1 to Riverstone Ranch Wastewater Diversion in the Longwood Service Area.

The contract will remove approximately 840 equivalent sewer connections from the Green Tee Terrace subdivision from the Longwood area to be diverted through the Riverstone Ranch system to the Barry Rose wastewater facility. The project is part of a project to divert wastewater flows away from the Longwood Water Reclamation Facility.

The city council voted 2-4, with only Keith Ordeneaux and J. David Little voting in favor of approval, to deny a resolution authorizing a bond order by Brazoria County Municipal Utility District No. 6 for the issuance of $4,870,000.

The city council voted unanimously to consent to the creation of Brazoria County Municipal Utility District No. 69 within the city's corporate boundaries.

The city council voted unanimously to approve, on first and final reading, an ordinance authorizing the issuance of certificates of obligation. The city will issue approximately $6.4 million in debt to fund several projects not included in the 2007 bond referendum, such as replacement and relocation of Fire Station No. 1, renovation of the City Hall Complex, the Green Tee Terrace Trail, and construction of a three lane northbound frontage road along State Highway 288 from County Road 59 to FM 518.

The city council voted 2-4, with Gary Moore and Ordeneaux voting in favor of approval, to deny granting a conditional use permit to allow a liquor/package store in the General Commercial District at 2530 East Broadway.

The city council voted 5-0-1, with Ordeneaux abstaining, to approve, on final reading, an ordinance establishing school zone speed limits.

All other items were approved by unanimous vote. Council Member Trent Perez was absent. Agenda
