COLMESNEIL – Lesley Waxman, of David Waxman, Inc, of Jasper, and Stephen West, the engineer from Leavins Engineering and Design of Beaumont were on hand to discuss the plans for the North Pitser Street project, which entails water and draining crossing improvements.

Waxman announced that they (city council) and opened the bids last week, after receiving five very competitive bids. West went on to explain, “all the bids were reviewed, and our recommendations were based on the amount of available funds for this project”. Waxman added, “we already knew money was going to be tight with inflation and whatnot; this gave us a way to do the project without having all the money or not”.

After discussing all the bids, council voted to award the project to SeTex Construction of Beaumont. Waxman added, “we will get in touch with the contractor, and my office, and the engineer’s (West) office will put together a pre-construction conference which will be held at Colmesneil City Hall, sometime in mid-January of 2024. We will go over everything that my office and West’s office is responsible for. We are trying to keep on the schedule given to us by the state, which we are”.

In other business, council voted to keep Bubba Sheffield as mayor pro-tem for the upcoming term. Council approved all necessary office reports, and minutes from previous meetings. Council adjourned at 6:15 p.m. to attend their annual Christmas party at the Community Center.
