Pearland City Council
by Garrett Bryce
Tuesday, December 12, 2017

Pearland City Council on Monday voted unanimously to cast the city's ballots in favor of re-electing Rubye Jo Knight to the Brazoria County Appraisal District Board of Directors.

The city has 438 votes out of the total 5,000 votes in the election. The number of votes is based on the city's percentage of the county's overall tax levy.

Other candidates nominated for election or re-election to the board are Tommy King, Gail Robinson, Glenn Salyer and Susan Spoor.

The city council voted unanimously to vote for Mike Sullivan for election to the Harris County Appraisal District Board of Directors. Sullivan was nominated to represent cities other than Houston on the board. He is unopposed, with Ed Heathcott, who has previously held the position, declining to seek re-election.

The city council voted 6-1, with Gary Moore opposed, to approve, on first reading, an ordinance to reinstate and amend the previously approved planned development at 4055 Village Drive.
