Tuesday’s regular city council workshop will begin at 7 p.m. and has only an executive session on the agenda.

The regular meeting begins at 7:30 p.m. in council chambers.

During the regular meeting, council will take action on a purchase from Vaught Services to perform Sanitary Rehabilitation of Deer Meadows Section 3, Green Way Plaza, and Meadows Village Subdivisions.

Also on the agenda is the purchase of bleachers for the Girls Softball complex project.

Council will also take action on an ordinance school zone signs on Luella Avenue near Deer Park Elementary. According to a memo from the city manager’s office, the flashing school zone sign for southbound traffic on Luella rests 50 feet away from its prescribed placement within city code. The new ordinance will state for the sign to be located at its present location.

Also, council will take action on appointing a member to the board of Crime Control and Prevention District. Former board member Shannon Burke moved out of the city, creating a vacancy. This vacancy is to be filled by the appointee of Councilman Ron Martin, who recommends Smokey Mather to fill the remainder of the term expiring Aug. 31 of this year.

In other business, council will also take action on the second reading granting a pipeline franchise to FLST LLC for a 16-inch Ethane pipeline; and an ordinance amendment regarding stop signs. According to the memo regarding this item from the city manager’s office, a staff committee led by the Police Department worked throughout 2017 to clean up various formatting and verbiage inconsistencies in City Code. This first ordinance, which addresses the correct placement of all stop signs within the City, now is ready for Council approval.
