Pasadena City Council on Tuesday voted 4-5, with only Mayor Jeff Wagner and council members Cary Bass, Phil Cayten and Bruce Leamon in favor, to deny the first reading of an ordinance for a $489,711 contract with Fleetwood Services, LLC for the Pasadena Municipal Golf Course 18th Hole Renovation.

The funds for the project were proposed to come from the city's 2017 Certificates of Obligation Fund Balance account.

Cayten spoke in favor of improving the course, stating that the course has received little work over the years.

“Thirty-five years of neglect, that's basically what we've had at the Pasadena Golf Course,” Cayten said. Listen (12:14)

Council Member Thomas Schoenbein noted that the golf course has cost the city money over several years.

“When do we say enough is enough?” Schoenbein said. “When do we put this half-a-million dollars into infrastructure, into this city.”

Other council members echoed Schoenbein, noting needs for other infrastructure projects, such as drainage improvements, in the city.

The city council voted unanimously to approve progress payments on various contracts underway in the city, including:

  • $40,002 to Brooks Concrete, Inc. for the 2018 Annual Sidewalk Project
  • $249,222 to GW Phillips Concrete Construction, Inc. for the Bearle Street Reconstruction Project
  • $9,896 to Peltier Brothers Construction, LTD for the WWTP Consolidation Project, Phase I
  • $55,432 to PFP Abatement Group, LLC for the Asbestos Abatement of a building at 1114 Davis
  • $113,402 to Progressive Commercial Aquatics, Inc. for the Sunset Pool Renovation Project

The city council voted unanimously to approve payments of miscellaneous claims and invoices. However, Bass abstained on any items related to Bass & Meineke

The city council voted unanimously to approve, on final reading, applying for grant funds totaling $17,640 from the Office of National Drug Control Policy for reimbursement of expenses associated with participation in the High Intensity Drug Trafficking Areas Program.

The city council voted 8-1, with Don Harrison opposed, to approve, on first reading, a $10,920 contract with Separation Systems Consultants, Inc. for environmental assessment of the Wafer Street Paving and Drainage Improvements.

The city council voted 6-3, with Harrison, Sammy Casados, and Cody Ray Wheeler opposed, to approve an amendment to the FY2018 Budget for the Pasasdena Second Century Corporation.
