Jefferson County
Beaumont City Council
by Garrett Bryce
Tuesday, May 09, 2017

Beaumont City Council today voted unanimously to award an $852,160 contract to Brystar Contracting, Inc. for the 2017 Paving Improvements Project.

The project includes removing and replacing the asphalt overlay, installing new storm sewer, new pavement markings and road signs to Harrison Avenue from Interstate Highway 10 to Eleventh Street and the Bristol Drive/Rosine Street Intersection.

Brystar submitted the second lowest bid. The lowest bidder, Simco Enterprises, LTD, did not supply adequate credentials to show a sufficient level of expertise of completed projects comparable to the project.

The city council voted to apply for and accept new grant funding for the continuation of the Southeast Texas Auto Theft Task Force.

The total budget requested for the task force is $1,149,396, with state funds in the amount of $548,981. Beaumont will provide a local match of $237,345 through the Beaumont Police Department, while other agencies will provide an additional $104,199 cash match.

The city council voted to amend an industrial district agreement with ExxonMobil Oil Corporation to include language that states that the payment each year will never be less than $11 million during the 7-year agreement, which expires at the end of 2022.

All items were approved. All votes were unanimous with all members present. Agenda
