COLMESNEIL – Colmesneil City Council held their regular meeting last Tuesday, September 12.
All council members were present, and all agenda items were addressed in short order.
The first item was to consider and approve going out for bids on the CDV21-0272 TDA CDBG Project. Lead Engineering is the contractor for this, which will be for North Pitzer street/bridge. Lesley Waxman’s office is assisting in this endeavor, and she will be at the next council meeting to give updates. Council went ahead and approved this item.
Council then approved Ordinance # 127, the cancellation of the general election for November 7, 2023, due to no opposition (for any council seats). Council quickly approved the financial and investment reports, the office report, and finally, the water and sewer reports.
The third annual Fall Festival is scheduled for Oct. 28 from 6-8 p.m., at the community center parking lot. This year promises to be bigger and better than ever. It is hosted by Colmesneil City Hall, and many other local businesses, churches, and organizations. Everyone is encouraged to wear a costume (adults, this means you, too).
Council approved all previous month’s reports in short order and heard a complaint about loose dogs roaming around at the post office from Catherine Deason, who wanted to know if anything could be done about the situation; council took this under advisement, and no solutions were agreed upon.
With no further business to discuss, council adjourned for the evening. Colmesneil City Council meets the second Tuesday of the month at 6 p.m.
