TRINITY — The Trinity City Council approved the first phase of water tower repairs at its meeting on Feb. 15.

City Manager Tim King said the council approved hiring Tandem Tank and Tower to repair one tower this fiscal year in April, and the other after the start of the new fiscal year.

King said the towers need to be repainted, relined on the inside and new ladders installed, which is normal upkeep. The north tower on West Pine Valley Road will be done first at an approximate cost of $123,000, and the next one downtown near the bank will be done later this year at an approximate cost of $114,000.

In other business, the council:

•denied a request for bids to replace bulkheads on Tatom Street, and will have the city’s Public Works Department repair them;

•approved allowing Entergy to install lights at the wastewater plant; and

•tabled action on recommendations from the Economic Development Council.

At a regular meeting on Feb. 8, the council:

•approved a plan to place a mobile home park at 157 FM 1617, once the developer replaced his original plan with a better parking schematic and added cul-de-sacs to allow fire trucks to turn around;

•approved budget amendments; and

•approved trading in and leasing a new skid steer from Bobcat of Houston.
