COLMESNEIL – Colmesneil City Council held their regular monthly meeting last Tuesday and were given a presentation by Lesley Waxman about the progress of the CDBG grant that they were approved for.

Waxman went over three sections of the process for grant # CDV21-0272.

The first part dealt with adopting civil rights and policies, part two was the authorization of signatories, part three dealt with requirements by the Texas Department of Agriculture, regarding the water and street improvements.

Waxman explained, “these are all the policies you have to adapt for every grant; the normal things you commit to, citizen participation plan, grievance procedures, fair housing code of conduct, etc. Any time you accept money from the government, you have to follow their rules.” She added, “when you have a bid project, you want to get the most bang for your buck. We are here to work for you. We would like for this process to move quickly.”

Council then voted to authorize signatories for the grant signage; Mayor Crews and Wendy Bendy are the two authorized signers. Council suggested adding Bubba Sheffield as a signatory, and he was approved. It was also mentioned that the new truck, which was purchased last October has been in the shop off and on for a month. Weaver Brothers informed Bendy that they would try to find the city another vehicle to replace that one.

All reports from the previous month were approved in short order, and the meeting was adjourned at 6:30 p.m. Colmesneil City Council meets the second Tuesday of the month at 6 p.m.
