City council meeting set for Tuesday

The city council meeting has been moved from Monday to Tuesday this week so votes from Saturday's election can be canvassed. The meeting will begin at 7 p.m. in the council chambers at city hall, 103 E. Cash.

After the votes are canvassed, the newly-elected members of the council will be sworn in and the appointment of a mayor pro tem will be considered and approved. In the event a runoff election is required for Place 3, a special election to be held June 15 will be ordered.

Other items on the agenda include reviewing bids received for a 2.149-acre tract of land owned by the city and for four tracts of land and related improvements for which the city serves as trustee on behalf of the city, Wichita County, and Iowa Park CISD, and consider the sale of one or more of the properties to the highest and most responsible bidder.

The council will discuss and consider establishing an employee salary/benefits flex plan.

A public hearing is scheduled to determine whether the 1997 Chevrolet 4-door sedan, located at 809 Van Horn Street, should be abated in accordance with the junked vehicle regulations outlined in the city's Code of Ordinances.

Council will vote on a resolution directing the city manager to prepare a municipal service plan for the 2.174 acre tract of land being part of Section 18 of the Tarrant County School Lands which the city proposes to annex, setting dates, times and places for two public hearings on the proposed annexation, and authorizing the city secretary to publish and post notice of the public hearings and declaring an emergency.

In other business the council will consider a request from NTS Communications, Inc. to allow the company a waiver of the city's solicitation and handbill regulations.
