Sulphur Springs City Manager’s Report To Council





CLAIMS – We had one minor worker’s compensation claim in May. We did not have any liability claims in May.

SENIOR CITIZENS BUILDING – The contract with the Texas Department of Housing and Community Affairs (TDHCA) is not ready for signature yet. I expect to sign this month. After that, we can go out for bids on the building.

PACIFIC PARK – The splash pad is nearly complete. We have hired a contractor to install a unique surface on the concrete. In addition, the Capital Construction Division is establishing a concrete walking path around the park. The basketball pavilion is later on the schedule to let the construction contract.

COLLEGE STREET – Highway 19 Construction (the contractor) has begun work on the concrete road. He’s off to a rough start. We’ve had to refocus him on the contract specifications. I think he is on the same page with us now.

ONCOR RATE INCREASE – Oncor has filed its rate case. There is a related action item later on the agenda.

REVENUES AND EXPENDITURES – Finance Director Lesa Smith will present a report of year-to-date revenues and expenditures.

STREET IMPROVEMENT PROGRAM – Texana Land has begun working on the Street Improvement Program. The following streets receive pavement:
