Friendswood City Council on Monday voted unanimously to approve an ordinance authorizing the issuance of waterworks and sewer system revenue bonds in the amount of $20,025,000 for capital improvement projects.

Projects include $1,594,000 for reconstruction of lift stations No. 1 and No. 17, $,464,000 for the fourth phase of the sanitary sewer assessment project, $2,531,200 for the replacement of a 42-inch water main, and $3,600,000 for surface water station No. 3, among others.

The ordinance was approved on first and final reading.

The city council voted 5-2, with John Scott and Carl Gustafson opposed, to approve a contract with Simple Recycling for textile recycling in the city.

The agreement will be for a 3-year term and provide free curbside recycling of clothing and home goods, on the same day as the existing curbside recycling program. The agreement will have no financial impact on the city, and Simply Recycling will pay the city equal to $0.01 per pound of soft recyclables collected.

The city council voted unanimously to approve, on final reading, an ordinance establishing fees for ground emergency medical services to be provided by the Friendswood Volunteer Fire Department.

The fire department was selected as the city's contractor for ground emergency ambulance services.

The city council voted unanimously to schedule the January city council meeting for January 14.

All other items were approved by unanimous vote. All members were present. Agenda
