The Stephenville City Council will meet Tuesday night and first up will be Hunter De Masi, student-director for Tarleton Roundup.
“Round-Up is Tarleton's annual day of service in the spring semester, in which students, faculty, staff and community members work together to assist the Stephenville community,” De Masi explained.
Last year nearly 700 volunteers completed over 80 projects such as painting, raking leaves and cleaning gutters for the elderly and other Stephenville residents that cannot complete the household chores.
SEDA Executive Director Dr. John Hubbard will also address the council with updates and requests regarding city funding for a $25,000 infrastructure grant to Equibrand, as well as a grant to Twisted J Apparel that will go towards the purchase of an embroidery machine.
Stephenville Police Chief Jason King will then speak to the council regarding two important law enforcement items - agreements between SPD, the district attorney and the Erath County Sheriff’s Office for forensic examinations of cell phones, mobile devices and electronics and a special crimes unit.
Perhaps the agenda item generating the most attention is a request for rezoning to accommodate a Panda Express Chinese restaurant on W. Washington Street across from N. Christy Plaza.
Other agenda items include:
• Update on Eastside Sewer Project
• Preliminary plat approval for Stone Gate Estates subdivision on FM 914 at CR 454
• Final plat approval for Phase V of Lakewood Estates subdivision at Hwy 281, and Sunburst
• Update on Leadership Stephenville Class of 2017 by Shelby Slawson
• Financial Committee Report
• Monthly Budget Report by Monica Harris, Finance Director for the City of Stephenville.
Tuesday's meeting will be held at 5:30 p.m. at City Hall.
