Beaumont City Council today voted unanimously to award a $726,162 contract to Allco, LLC for the Keith Road 16-inch Water Line Project.

The project includes the installation of the water line from Phelan Boulevard to Dishman Road.

The city council voted to cast the city's 480 votes for the re-election of Lauren Mason to the Jefferson Central Appraisal District Board of Directors.

Mason, Eugene Landry, Charles Lankford, Dr. Louis Reed and Jefferson County Tax Assessor-Collector Allison Nathan Getz have been nominated for election.
