Sulphur Springs City Manager Marc Maxwell’s Report To City Council

CLAIMS – We did not have any workers’ compensation or liability claims in May.

SENIOR CITIZENS CENTER – We completed the foundation, and the project should go vertical soon.

PACIFIC PARK – The sports pavilion construction is rapidly progressing. The basic structure is complete. The contractor is installing lights now. Soon crews will install the pergola on the east side of the pavilion. Then they establish the basketball goals and paint the floors. We will demolish the old basketball courts, grade the park’s interior, and install irrigation and sod when the pavilion is complete.

COLLEGE STREET – College Street is open down to Patton StreetWater and sewer construction is now complete on Rooon Street. We are currently installing water and sewer from Rookson to Como. Crews completed Rookson Street today.


Following is a preliminary list of streets up for repaving in 2023. Later the agenda will be to approve the asphalt paving bid for the SIP. Expect this list to be updated and finalized.
