The Humble City Council met Aug. 13 to discuss and approve several subdivision and development plats and the police chief position in closed session.
Post-approval of the City of Humble budget for 2019-2020, the board approved the drainage design for $80,938 for the Spears Village Ditch Regrading Project.
An election services agreement between Harris County and the City of Humble was approved for the administration of the Nov. 3 joint general election.
“There will be over 100 early voting locations around the county, with the main site being the Humble Civic Center. This will provide community members with plenty of opportunities to vote and to have their voice be heard,” said Mayor Merle Aaron.
The next order of business was to approve several development plats, including a 12,000-acre portion of land near Bug Time situated in the James Strange Survey Abstract No. 695 by BR Rogers Enterprises, Inc., a location in the Wilson Court Subdivision in Reserve 4 of the Wilson Road Industrial Complex, and a location in the Bender Square Shopping Center SE portion of unrestricted reserve of the W.B. Adams Survey to be used for a strip center with drive-through drugstore.
Then, the board also approved several subdivision plats, including the location of ARP Wilson Court Subdivision in Reserve 4 of the Wilson Road Industrial Complex and a location within the Bender Square Shopping Center.
Board members then met in closed session to discuss next steps regarding the position of police chief. Humble Police Chief Delbert Dawes is retiring after a long career with Humble PD. His last day on duty will be Oct. 1.
To close out the meeting, Councilmember David Pierce gave an update on several local activities.
“As you know, Humble schools are in session using both synchronous and asynchronous learning sessions. The Humble ISD board of trustees is busy ensuring connectivity for all students, and the teachers and administration have all done an excellent job adjusting to this new means for education.”
