Thursday, May 17, 2018

The Texas City City Commission on Wednesday voted unanimously to approve an agreement with ARKK Engineers for design, bidding and construction engineering services associated with the city's Bay Street Shared-Use Path Project.

The project is a combination of a new facility from Dike Road headed south, and replacing and widening an existing path from Skyline Drive into Bay Street Park. The Texas Transportation Commission is providing 80 percent of the construction cost of the project, $410,154. The city is responsible for $102,538.

The city commission voted to adopt a resolution canvassing the results of the May 5 election.

Mayor Matthew Doyle, Dorthea Jones, Jami Clark and Bruce Clawson were sworn in for another term on the commission. Phil Roberts, who had held the District 2 position, was sworn in as an At-Large Commissioner, replacing Dee Ann Haney. Abel Garza replaced Roberts in District 2, while Earl Alexander replaced Thelma Bowie as District 1 Commissioner.

The city commission voted to re-elect Roberts as mayor pro tem.

The city commission voted to accept the donation of a bus from Galveston County Senior Citizens Activities, Inc. The bus will hold 36 passengers plus two wheelchair stations, and will provide day trips for the elderly through the city's senior citizens program.

The city commission voted to amend the city's budget to appropriate additional funds for the purchase of police vehicles.

The city will transfer $11,685 from the unassigned fund balance for the purchase of the vehicles, which include a total cost of $364,101. The original budgeted amount totaled $352,416.

All items were approved. All votes were unanimous with all members present. Agenda
