Bowie Council to consider second round of funds

Bowie City Councilors will consider approving additional funds for the culvert and street repair on Lamb Street when they meet at 6 p.m. on Jan. 25 in council chamber.
City crews began removing the street asphalt, concrete and culvert debris this past week in an effort to initiate repairs. The council approved the expenditure of $50,000 from the infrastructure fund, but asked for more specifics about what work is planned including a retaining wall to protect a property next the culvert on Lamb.
The project also has plans to clean up the culvert and drainage in Kiwanis Park where a retention pond will be construction taking up a large part of the park. City Manager Bert Cunningham had requested $100,000 from the fund for the project at the Jan. 11 meeting, but the council opted to go half until they receive some more specifics. A request for the second $50,000 is on the agenda.
Numerous appointments to city board are on tap including members to the Bowie Library Board, Planning and Zoning Commission and Board of Adjustment and Appeals.
