The Stephenville City will hold its regular monthly meeting Tuesday night and address a plateful of important city matters. At the top of the agenda will be citizen budget requests, an annual occurrence during budget preparations for the next fiscal year.
Two requests are included in the city council agenda. First is a request by Mark Wallace, member of the Planning and Zoning Commission and N. Dale Ave. resident, who’s asking the city to set aside funding for “traffic calming devices” aka “speed bumps” to reduce frequent speeding on the street.
Second is a request from Sundown on the Square event coordinators Marion Cole, Metta Collier and Patricia Weldon for a funding set-aside for the renovation of Shapard Street and the construction of an asphalt parking lot between the Oxford House and the Bosque Trail’s E. Washington Street Trailhead. Proceeds from this year’s Sundown on the Square have been designated to benefit the Oxford House and museum parking.
The council will also consider a request by the the board of directors of the Stephenville Economic Development Authority, or SEDA, that John R. Hubbard be hired as the organization’s new executive director.
In addition, council will consider electing a new mayor pro-tem following the departure of Russ McDanel after the last election, who previously held the post.
Other important agenda items include:
• Approval of city council committee appointments
• Election of the voting representative to the North Central Texas Council of Governments
• Consideration of an advanced funding agreement for projects in coordination with the Texas Dept. of Transportation, and Tarleton State University.
• Capital Improvement Project discussion
• Consideration of approval of a resolution authorizing creation of the North Central Texas Council of Governments Regional 9-1-1 Emergency Communications District.
The meeting will be held at 5:30 p.m. in City Council Chambers at Stephenville City Hall.
