At the Jan. 8 Sealy City Council meeting, City Manager Lloyd Merrell reported the following:
•The wastewater treatment plant is 68 percent complete and is about 10 percent ahead of schedule.
•The Rexville elevated water tank renovation is complete except for a little bit of painting and installing logos on top of the structure. Merrell noted that the council had asked for pricing on upgrades to other tanks in the area. For just under $30,000 the vendor will check other tanks, paint and upgrade their appearance. It’s important to do it while the company is already in town working on the Rexville structure, Merrell explained. They could be gone within the next two weeks, city officials advised.
•Progress was delayed on B&PW Park walking trails due to rainfall but Merrell said work is expected to resume within about a week.
•Economic development activity is progressing, and an executive session is scheduled for an upcoming meeting at which the council can discuss projects that are in the works. An offer has been extended to a potential director for the Sealy Economic Development Corp. and a final council vote is expected at the Jan. 22 meeting.
