The Sherman City Council will consider awarding a contract for the planned renovation of the city’s skate park at Hawn Park during its regular meeting Monday at 5 p.m. in the council chambers of City Hall.
City staff is recommending the council execute a contract with Transcend Inc., which does business as SPA Skateparks, of Austin to do the design and construction work for the planned $250,000 renovation at Hawn Park. Funding for the skate park renovation was included in the city’s 2018 Capital Improvement Program budget.
On Thursday, the Sherman Parks and Recreation Department held a community input session to gather suggestions from local skaters of what they’d like to see incorporated into the renovated park.
A change order and final payment will be considered for the Loy Lake Road Project, which was approved on May 16, 2016, and opened for drivers last year. The change order is for a $102,217.41 increase to the contract price. The project’s final price now totals $2,046,127.18.
The council will also consider accepting the deed for 7.7109 acres of land on Northgate Drive from the Sherman Economic Development Corp. The land will be the new home of the city’s Blalock Park Fire Station No. 4. Construction is expected to begin later this month and the city hopes to have the station operational by the end of 2018.
A resolution will be considered to authorize the construction of a detention facility in Magnolia Village, a development north of U.S. Highway 82 and east of North Travis Street.
The council will also proclaim Monday as “Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. Day” in the city of Sherman.
The public will have a chance to comment on the adoption of a revised official zoning map during a public hearing near the beginning of the meeting. Public hearings will also be held on a specific use permit for 903 Brewers, a zoning change for a property at 5215 Knollwood Road and a site plan for a commercial strip center at the same address.
Community and Support Services Manager Nate Strauch will give the council a presentation on Sherman’s Low Income Housing Tax Credit Program and a recent application for it.
The council will also consider reappointments to the Keep Sherman Beautiful Commission.
Near the end of the meeting, the council will go into a closed, executive session to discuss possible litigation with the city attorney, personnel matters and economic development negotiations. The council will then return to open session to take any actions deemed necessary on executive session items.
