SEDA meeting postponed until Monday


The regular monthly meeting of the board of directors of the Stephenville Economic Development Authority has been postponed until Monday, July 25, due to an error in the meeting notice.

SEDA secretary Shelby Slawson explained, “The meeting has to be rescheduled due to a date error on the meeting notice that read June 21 instead of July 21.”

SEDA will hold the board meeting in the City Hall Training Room at 11:30 a.m. on Monday.

At the top of the agenda is consideration of two grant proposals that could benefit economic development in our area.

According to SEDA executive director, John R. Hubbard, “The first is a Workforce Development Grant in the amount of $10,000 to benefit the Skills Development Fund Grant and courses at Ranger College.”

The second is a $650 grant to Erath County for infrastructure improvements at the Courthouse Square, specifically for additional electrical outlets around the square so vendors can plug in when they’re working at special events such as Sundown on the Square.

Other agenda items include:

• An agreement with Brown Hofmeister, LLP for legal services,

• Professional services agreements for the SEDA website and logo design,

• Consideration of approval of policy documents including Conflict of Interest and Verification, Operating Policy

• Discussion re: 2016-2017 Fiscal Year Budget.
