Continuation of Bridgeport’s Main Street program will be the topic of discussion at Tuesday’s council meeting.

Council members will also “take appropriate action” on “the management and supervision of certain programs and activities funded” with hotel occupancy tax dollars.

Following discussion at the council’s last meeting, they will vote on a bid for a perimeter fence around Northwest OHV Park.

They will also consider a project agreement between the city and Precinct 4 to pave Edison and Irvin streets, and an economic development and performance agreement and budget amendments for Latitude Land Co. LLC to extend a sanitary sewer line extension to Bridgeport Animal Hospital.

After swearing in incumbents Bobby Brazier and Billy Fred Walker and newly elected member Kevin Lopez, the council will appoint a mayor pro tem for a one-year term and discuss naming a voting representative to the North Central Texas Council of Government’s general assembly.

Other items include hearing a report on this year’s audit; approval of a modification agreement with First State Bank for the Rutherford Ranch bank note; closing 10th Street between Halsell and Hovey streets 7 a.m. to 1:30 p.m. Saturday, May 25, for Cub Scout Pack 194’s Soap Box Derby; granting the group use of the Harwood Park pavilion free of charge; waiving also the rental fee of the Community Center for the Texas A&M AgriLife Extension Office’s Feral Hog Appreciation Day Aug. 13, 2013, and the office’s future trainings.

In workshop, council members will discuss bulk pick-up regulations and, in closed session, an offer to purchase property in the McCabe Addition.

Routine items include a review of the April budget variance report; quarterly financial report; past meeting minutes and the payment report.

The meeting is 7 p.m. at City Hall, 900 Thompson St. It is open to the public.
