Bridgeport City Council to renew after-school care

By Jake Harris | Published Saturday, July 12, 2014

The Bridgeport city council will vote Tuesday on a policy to make after-school programs at the parks and recreation department safer for children.

In a public hearing during their regular meeting, council members will discuss renewing an ordinance that would implement a Youth Services Standards of Care Policy for the department’s after-school programs and camps.

There will also be a workshop to discuss nighttime mosquito spraying within the city limits. A survey conducted by the city says that 90 percent of Bridgeport residents polled support the spraying.

The council will also consider:

  • approving a three-year, $17,000 maintenance agreement with Vaisala to provide maintenance on the Automated Water Observation System (AWOS) at the Bridgeport Municipal Airport;
  • approving a reimbursement agreement with West Texas LPG Pipeline Limited Partnership to remove part of a gas pipeline on airport property;
  • reviewing the duties and responsibilities of city administration in ordinance 2011-17; and
  • a request from the Bridgeport Lion’s Club to install lights at the Community Service commemorative flagpole in Harwood Park.

In the consent agenda, officials will review minutes and hear a presentation on the May budget variance report from City Administrator Brandon Emmons.

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