Brazoria County
Pearland City Council
by Garrett Bryce
Tuesday, October 24, 2017

Pearland City Council on Monday voted unanimously to award a $6,797,521 contract to SER Construction Partners, LLC for the construction of the Max Road Extension Project.

The project will extend Max Road from Hughes Ranch Road to Reid Road, widening the road from two to four lanes, with a traffic signal at Hughes Ranch Road and bridges over Hickory Slough.

The city council voted unanimously to reject any and all bids for construction services associated with the Corrigan Ditch Sub-basin at Mary's Creek Drainage Improvements.

The project is intended to address chronic flooding within the Wagon Trail-Ochoa-Cantu area south of Broadway.

The city received two proposals for the project. Staff concluded the lower of the two bids was by a contractor that had not demonstrated sufficient experience to manage the work, while the other bid exceeded the budget for construction and was 20 percent higher than the low bidder.

The city council voted 4-3, with Tony Carbone, Derrick Reed and Trent Perez opposed, to deny a motion to approve, on final reading, a request to rezone property at 6518 Rice Road from a Single Family Residential District to a General Commercial District.

The item had required a super-majority for approval, and therefore the motion failed.

The city council voted 6-1, with Reed opposed, to approve an amended development agreement with Savannah Development, LTD.

The city council voted unanimously to authorize participation in a cooperative contract through the Texas BuyBoard with Kraftsman Commercial Playgrounds and Water Parks for the purchase and construction of an event stage and dressing rooms associated with the Independence Park Project, in an amount not to exceed $380,321.

The stage is part of an amphitheater for the park for special events.

The city council voted unanimously to approve contracts with Kraftsman for the purchase and installation of playground equipment for the Independence Park Project, in an amount not to exceed $308,728.

The city council voted unanimously to appoint Erum Jivani and Thomas Pfeifer as associate municipal court judges, as discussed in closed session.

The city council voted unanimously to authorize staff to proceed in litigation as discussed in closed session.

All other items were approved by unanimous vote. All members were present. Agenda
