Bryan City Council met on June 20, 2023, first approving the minutes from the June 5, 2023 meeting.
The clerk / treasurer’s report was accepted as presented, and then the fire chief came to ask that the hire-in rate for probationary firefighters with no experience be raised to $10.10 an hour as it was discovered the prior pay amount was below minimum wage.
A contract was approved for the Bryan Wastewater Treatment Plant Project for an amount of $51,460 for Peterson Construction Company to handle the design aspects to the envisioned improvements.
The sewer replacement project at Horton Heights has been finished at $29,000 less than the projected cost.
The overall cost for this project will be covered with grant funding not to exceed $2.1 million.
All proposed grants were given the go-ahead for the submission of applications, and then A Community Reinvestment Area tax exemption was filed for an addition to a warehousing structure on Edgerton Street.
Construction costs were reported to be near $484,000. The rules were suspended so that this could be passed on its first reading.
Mayor Carrie Schlade appointed Robert Roy to serve on the City Planning and Zoning Commission until December of 2025 and Dan Jenkins to the Williams Metropolitan Housing Authority until July of 2028.
Council then voted to cancel their July 3, 2023 meeting due to a lack of agenda before adjourning the meeting.
