The finalist for the Brenham Police Chief’s position may be announced next week. Brenham City Manager James Fisher said that the city has tendered an offer for the Police Chief’s position, but that they are still working through the background checks and psychological tests on the applicant. He said that if everything checks out, the city may announce their finalist next week and it would go before City Council on May 3rd for their approval.
The Brenham City Council will hold an Executive Session this Thursday to review the performance of James Fisher. Fisher says he requested the 90 day review by the council to make sure they were on the same page and were moving in the same direction. Fisher took over as Brenham’s City Manager in January, replacing Terry Roberts, who retired after 17 years with the city.
Also on Thursday’s agenda, council will hear an update on a proposed Bluebonnet Haven Residential Treatment Facility near Brenham. Councilmembers are expected to get an update on the facility and its potential impact on the Brenham Independent School District.
Councilmembers will also consider adopting a Commercial Tax Phase-In for Country Boys Sausage in their expanded facility in the Southwest Industrial Park. They are also expected to issue a letter of interest to the TxDOT Aviation Division for funding a Capital Improvement Program at the Brenham Airport.
Brenham City Council meets Thursday at 1:00 PM at City Hall.
