Missouri City City Council
by Garrett Bryce
Tuesday, March 21, 2017

Missouri City City Council on Monday voted unanimously to approve a list of mobility projects to submit to Fort Bend County for a possible future mobility bond referendum.

Fort Bend County is considering holding a bond election in November to fund potential roadway projects.

The city is putting forward an initial list of projects, including:

  • Fifth Street and Bull Lane Expansion to tie into US 90A
  • Proposed Beltway 8 connector to Cravens Road
  • Watt's Plantation Road Extension/Expansion
  • Trammel Fresno Road Expansion
  • Sienna Parkway Intersection Improvements
  • Glenn Lakes Lane Reconstruction

The city council 4-0, with Don Smith away from the table, to approve a request from the Exchange Club of Fort Bend to post child abuse awareness signs along Highway 90A and Present Street.

The city council voted 4-0, with Smith away from the table, to approve a city sponsorship agreement with the Missouri City Juneteenth Celebration Foundation, Inc.

The city council voted unanimously to approve a resolution granting Fort Bend Municipal Utility District No. 48 consent to annex approximately 109 acres of land within the city.

The property is located between the Fort Bend Toll Road and the existing district boundary, and the two northern corners of the Vicksburg/Lake Olympia intersection.

The district will facilitate the provision of water, wastewater utilities and drainage for the area, while retaining customers in the city service area.

The city council voted unanimously to deny a proposed rate increase and consolidation of the Houston and Texas Coast divisions by CenterPoint Energy for natural gas service.

CenterPoint proposed a revenue increase of $31 million per year. Missouri City is a member of the Gulf Coast Coalition of Cities, which serves as the public interest advocate for the region.

All other items were approved by unanimous vote. Council members Chris Preston and Yolanda Ford were absent. Agenda
