La Porte City Council
by Garrett Bryce
Tuesday, March 14, 2017

La Porte City Council on Monday voted unanimously to approve an interlocal agreement with Harris County to allow the county to construct the relocation of city sewer facilities along Choate Road in connection with the construction of the Choate Road Improvements Project.

The county plans to bid the project in June, which includes improvements along Choate Road from 1,200 feet west of Bay Area Boulevard to Highway 146. The city maintains a sanitary sewer force main that is in the Choate Road right of way. The city will allow the county's contractor to resolve any conflicts related to the project, at an estimated cost of $23,126 to the city, with the agreement allowing the city to reject bids and obtain independent quotes if the bid price is unacceptable.

The city council voted unanimously to reject all bids and have staff provide in-house aquatics services.

The city council took no action regarding the Comprehensive Annual Financial Report for FY2016. The item will be considered at the March 27 meeting.

The city council voted unanimously to appoint Sergio Torre and Zachary Daniels as reserve police officers.

The city council voted unanimously to accept the Planning and Zoning Commission's recommendation to deny a request to rezone an approximately 6.69 acre tract of land located along Fairmont Parkway between Brookwood Drive and Canada Road from a Residential District to a Commercial District.

The city council voted unanimously to deny amending the city's Future Use Plan to designate the property as commercial in use.

The city council voted unanimously to deny condemnation of buildings at 129 Bayshore, 304 South Blackwell Street and 1608 Roscoe.

The city council voted unanimously to approve an agreement with the La Porte Boy's Baseball Association.

All other items were approved by unanimous vote. Council members Mike Clausen and Daryl Leonard were absent. Agenda
