Bryson to repair sewer plant

BRYSON ­– Leonard Water System will be working on the city’s sewer plant in the coming days, council members found out during Monday’s reglar meeting.

Public Works Director Clifford Smith said a new pump for the plant has been ordered and should be installed in about 1 1/2 to 2 days. Two bids to handle installation were received with Leonard’s bid of $23,000 accepted. The council had to pay $11,500 up front for Leonard’s to order the pump with the rest of the payment given on work completion.

Smith said road repair work on McCloud and Center streets should begin next week. There are more holes than originally thought because of recent rains. 

Mayor Sheila Birdwell said she planned on attending Monday night’s school board meeting to see if the city and school might share the cost of paving the muddy area near the elementary school to help cars and kids from getting dirty as kids are dropped off and picked up.

Action was tabled on whether the city has the authority on closing Henderson Street after a homeowner asked for the closing. Birdwell said she asked the city’s legal team which said it would have to do some investigative work. Birdwell was advised to check with Texas Municipal League Legal to see if there is any precedent on something like this.

City Secretary Frank Hefner said the present city hall has about a 3/4-inch gap in the brick, allowing the sunshine to come in through the roof which must be fixed. He said bids would probably be needed for the project.
