Brenham’s Parks and Recreation Advisory Board will further discuss the usage of tobacco in public facilities and parks at its meeting Wednesday.
The board will consider making a recommendation to the city council to amend a chapter of city ordinance, to define city parks as tobacco-free environments. Public Works Director Dane Rau said this recommendation would give the ordinance better language for restrictions on tobacco for park facilities.
The board will also hold a work session pertaining to an aquatic therapy class to possibly be held at the Blue Bell Aquatic Center. Rau said a private business is looking at using the Aquatic Center’s therapy pool for its patients. The city will discuss usage and rental rates for usage of the pool.
Also on the agenda, the board will discuss electing a chairperson and vice chairperson for a one-year term, and introduce new board members. It will also receive several staff updates.
The board will meet Wednesday at noon, at the All Sports Building at Hohlt Park, located at 137 Lounge Road in Brenham.
