Beaumont City Council
by Garrett Bryce
Tuesday, September 11, 2018

Beaumont City Council today voted unanimously to approve a Local Transportation Project Advanced Funding Agreement with the Texas Department of Transportation for the Eleventh Street Resurfacing Project.

Under the agreement, TxDOT will provide $1,001,475 in federal funds, with $72,370 in state funds and a requirement of $275,389 in local matching funds from the city for the project.

The project includes resurfacing Eleventh Street from Delaware Street south to Interstate Highway 10.

The city council voted to approve a $92,000 contract with Schaumburg and Polk, Inc. for engineering services related to the Cattail Marsh Wetlands. Flooding during Hurricane Harvey caused soils in the levee to weaken and fail in several locations. The contract will provide engineering services to address damages to the Cattail Marsh Wetlands.

The city council voted to approve an agreement to participate in the Apple Developer program.

The city council voted to enter into an agreement with the Department of Homeland Security to allow the National Cybersecurity and Communications Intergration Center to conduct continuous network and vulnerability scanning of the city's publicly accessible networks and systems.

The city council voted to authorize the Beaumont Convention and Visitors Bureau to apply for grant funds in the amount of $13,000 in Jefferson County Hotel Occupancy Tax Funds to help pay for the purchase of two kiosks and other items to be used throughout the Cattail Marsh Wetlands.

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