Bellmead Update – May 2014

Greetings Bellmead  citizens,

BELLMEAD’S BOOMING!  Congratulations to our new Mayor Doss Youngblood and Mayor Pro-Tem Gary Moore.  Both have served on the City Council for a number of years and have accepted the honor of these two positions.

Please extend a very warm welcome to Matthew Jordan, who is our new City Councilman for Precinct 3. He is taking the seat formerly held by Mayor Pro-Tem Mary Youngblood who decided not to run for re-election. He has lived in Bellmead since the 1960s and seems to be all about the citizens. I think he will be a good addition to the Council. We have another tie election race. Two candidates received the exact same number of votes for Precinct 4 and a runoff election will be June 28 to determine the final winner of that race. Once again, every vote counts.  One more vote for either of these candidates would have given them the election.

We have several booming things happening in economic development and new businesses. Two new businesses are opening in June in the Bellmead Center next to City Hall.  They are King Mobile, who will be able to supply technical mobile needs and The Wellness Project, which will provide many services dealing with health. If you have a stubborn pain that won’t go away, they may be able to help provide some relief.  We are also pleased to have new construction underway for a new Dollar Tree store, which will open on Loop 340 near Skate Country. Yes, Bellmead is Booming and BELLMEAD MEANS BUSINESS!

The May City Council meeting on Tuesday, May 13 began with Bellmead Police Officers Color Guard marching in the flag. This was in honor of Peace Officers’ Memorial Day.  We read a Proclamation for this special day, which came after a prayer and the Pledge of Allegiance. We were updated on two grants that were awarded to the Police Department. One grant was from Petsmart and the other grant was for about $1,900 worth of bullet proof vests.  We appreciate these grants as it saves tax dollars, which we can use for other needs.  After approval of the minutes the regular agenda went as follows:

• We had our final vote on changing the zoning ordinance in Bellmead to convert two areas from residential to industrial. These areas are on the East side of Bellmead and were annexed a few years ago as residential. This change coincides with the Comprehensive Plan for the city.

• The Council approved another year of support for the McLennan County Health Department. The cost is about $1.50 per resident per year and is well worth it for the number of our citizens who receive aid from the facility. The Council voted to disapprove the rate increase that was proposed by Atmos Energy after finding that their rate increase request was not supported by data.

• We are always looking for citizens who are willing to volunteer their time in service to the rest of us. The Council appointed several new volunteers to serve on Boards. Larry Benedictine, Rachael Sais and Micah Newman were all appointed as alternates for the Building Standards Board and Sandy Jordan, Harry Myers and Rodger Brown were appointed as alternates for the Board of Adjustments.  Thanks to these volunteers for being willing to help serve our community.

• The Council authorized the purchase of material to be used with a grant to provide sewer service to residents. This grant will also help us to replace a number of aging water meters. We also approved a resolution to pursue a Justice Assistance Grant that will provide aid to our police. Then we approved needed changes to our Southside Sanitary Sewer Improvements Project and repairs needed for the Meyers Road water well to maintain the City’s infrastructure.

• We looked at the city’s finances report from the independent auditor that found that everything was in order for Bellmead. We approved this report and also the Investment Report for the quarter.

• The Council voted to show support for yet another new business that plans to come to town.  This business will have a recreationally based destination operation and is expected to bring outside folks to our city. They have asked for assistance from the Bellmead Economic Development Corporation. The Council will vote on a formal Resolution of support at a later meeting.

• At the conclusion of regular business, the Council formally accepted the vote count and declared the winners and the tie. Oaths of office were administered and seats were changed.  After a closed session discussion, the Council voted Doss Youngblood into the position of mayor and Gary Moore as the new mayor pro-tem.

A runoff election will be June 28 to determine the victor for one Council seat.  Challenger Jose Arrollo Jr. will again go up against U. F. Roberts for this Council Seat.  If you live in precinct 4 be sure to vote.
