Santa Fe City Council

Friday, November 09, 2018

Santa Fe City Council on Thursday voted unanimously to adopt a resolution committing the city to provide 25 percent in local matching funds to secure and complete the Federal Emergency Management Agency Hazard Mitigation grant projects for drainage and detention and waste water treatment plant facility resilience.

City Manager Joe Dickson noted that the city has more than $1.3 million in grant funds approved to the city under the Hazard Mitigation Grant Program, and that the 25 percent match will come out of that money.

The city council voted unanimously to reappoint and appoint members to the Zoning Board of Adjustment.

Scott Eckenrode and Beverly Pruitt were reappointed as regular memebers, Ron Istre as an alternate member, and Claude Hoke was appointed to an unexpired term on the board to fill the vacancy left by Jason Tabor's election as mayor.

The city council voted unanimously to deny a request for a variance for a two-lot subdivision on 2.65 acres located adjacent to 10304 North Morningview to allow lot frontage for Lot 1 via private access through lot 2.

The city council voted unanimously to authorize the execution of a mutual aid law enforcement agreement with Galveston County for mutual support during disaster operations and other unforeseen events.

The city council voted 3-1, with Bill Pittman opposed, to table action regarding a resolution to commit funds for sharing the cost of utility extensions to Tower Road Estates in exchange for the developer's request to annex the subdivision.

The developer was requesting $100,000 to reimburse for utility work for annexation of the property.

All other items were approved by unanimous vote. Council Member Joe Carothers was absent. Agenda
