Eight Coppell City Council members broke from work session and entered the city hall meeting room laughing. Despite the choppy weather that would follow Tuesday evening, the second City Council meeting of the month ran smoothly.
No one had signed up for a Citizen’s Appearance, so the council skipped straight into the consent agenda. The council had four items to assess but chose to set item B aside to consider separately.
To speak on the bid for the replacement of fitness equipment at the CORE, totaling $62,764.31, Recreation Center supervisor Jonathan Winters addressed the Council.
He explained the need for new fitness equipment that is constantly being replaced and the old models of equipment that need to be improved upon.
When it was not questioned, councilman Wes Mays moved to pass items A, C and D. The Council’s attention then turned to item B, considering approval of a bid for cleaning and related services.
City representative Sherry Moreno asked to improve upon the issue brought up previously in 2012, which would raise the contract price from 181,000 to 285,000, but would meet the needs of new facilities (increased square footage).
That motion was also carried and the Council quickly moved on to the End of Consent Agenda.
Four items made up the evening’s agenda. The first addressed limitations to the building of live/work units, the second required a certain building material for future hotels and motels in Coppell and the third regarded Coppell setting a schedule to review information with Oncor Electric Delivery Company.
When all three were unopposed, the council addressed the final item, which considered an approval of an agreement between the City and SPAN, Inc to offer transit to senior citizens and citizens with disabilities.
The SPAN contract would cost $2.50 for seniors and those with disabilities and would be offered Monday through Friday from 7 a.m. to 6 p.m., would include all of Coppell and some of the surrounding area and would last four months before being evaluated.
It too was passed, closing the agenda on a successful note.
