CITY COUNCIL TO DISCUSS TEMPORARY HOME FOR LIBRARY

The Brenham City Council will be looking for a temporary new home for the Nancy Carol Roberts Library when they meet Thursday at city hall.

The City Council is expected to go into executive session to discuss acquiring the Boettecher Building to house the city library while the search continues for a new home.

The library staff says the current library is not adequate to meet the current needs and is flawed in numerous ways.  The library, at 100 Martin Luther King Boulevard, was built in 1970.   Discussions about building a new library have come up several times in the past several years.  The Library Board and the Fortnightly Club help the city run the library.

The City Council is also looking at renewing the guidelines for the city’s tax phase in policy. 

The Council is expected to approve on its second reading the new speed limits on U.S.. Highway 290 from the east city limit to Business 290 West.

The Brenham City Council meets Thursday at one at city hall.
