CITY COUNCIL TO CONTINUE DISCUSSIONS OVER CITY MANAGER

  

The Brenham City Council will spend some more time discussing the final five candidates for City Manager during their meeting this Thursday.

After interviewing each of the five finalists last week, the Brenham City Council has said it could take another week or two before naming a new City Manager.  The Council will go into executive session during Thursday’s 1 o’clock meeting to continue their evaluations.

During the work session of the meeting, City Public Works Director Dane Rau will go over some new ideas for the Annual Spring Clean Up Event at the Citizen’s Collection Station.  Last week Rau told the Washington County Commissioners that the event has become so popular that it takes six weeks for the Collection Station to recover.

During Thursday’s regular session, council members will discuss an amendment to the lease agreement with filmmaker Roy Burger, who is leasing 109 acres of the old City Landfill property.  Burger said recently that he still intends to make the movie based on the book, “The Burning of Brenham”.

Also on the agenda Thursday is the purchase of a discharge spreader truck for the City’s water treatment plant, an equipment financing proposal with Bank of Brenham, a ground space lease agreement with John Schaer III for hangar space at the Brenham Municipal Airport, and a noise variance request from St. Mary’s Immaculate Conception Catholic Church for their November 19th fundraiser.

The Brenham City Council will meet at 1 p.m. Thursday on the second floor of the Brenham City Hall.
