The Humble City Council met Feb. 27 to discuss the 20-foot utility easement in Block 1 of Humble, acceptance of the certificate of unopposed candidates for the May 2 General Election, and to offer public tours of the new city ambulance.
The first order of new business included approving Ordinance 20-863, providing the vacating, abandonment and closing of a portion of a 20-foot utility easement situated in the C.C. Shelby Survey, Abstract 693 and the W.B. Adams Survey, Abstract 95.
Secondly, the board approved and accepted the certificate of unopposed candidates by the city secretary for the May 2, 2020 General Election.
The final regularly scheduled order of business included a closed session by the board to deliberate on real property. During the closed session, attendees were invited to the parking lot to check out the new City of Humble ambulance. This new vehicle is complete with LED lights and an updated siren. This new resource will improve existing service to the community and allow residents to hear the ambulance in record time. Therefore, it will be a life-saving addition to the city.
The final order of business included announcing events taking place around town in the coming weeks.
One of the handouts available for the meeting relayed that the Sixth Annual Police Memorial Ceremony will take place at the Humble Civic Center from 9-10 a.m., Monday, May 11. This event will be located at 8233 Will Clayton Pkwy. Registration is required by calling 713-274-4050.
