Much of today’s (Thursday’s) Brenham City Council meeting will be behind closed doors, as they meet with the city attorney concerning a large building in the downtown area that is not in compliance with building standards. City Manager Terry Roberts says this structure at 209 South Market has been in bad shape for a long time and they have worked with the owners about making an upgrade.
While there are several other buildings and houses not in compliance with building standards, Roberts says this building is the largest and in the greatest need of attention.
The Brenham City Council will also adopt new permit inspection fees and enact code enforcement by the city fire marshal.
The council will also act on amending an airport project agreement with the Texas Department of Transportation.
The Brenham City Council meets today (Thursday) at one at city hall.
