By James McAfee/The Knox County News-Courier—
MUNDAY—The Munday City Council awarded contracts to Public Management for assistance in applying for two future grants for downtown revitalization and strategic planning services during its regular monthly meeting last Tuesday night.
Jake McAdams, regional project manager for the Granbury-based company, provided details on matching funds necessary and felt the city had good chances to obtain the grants if it met the Sept 1 deadlines to apply.
However, McAdams recommended not applying for a third grant at this time, so the council tabled taking any action.
Public Management receives a portion of the grant money when approved.
The council amended its golf cart ordinance, eliminating the local $15 registration fee since the state was now requiring cart owners to get separate stickers and will allow locals to drive at night if there are lights on the carts.
The council decided to participate in the CARES relief fund to assist cities recovering from the pandemic. There’s $58,000 available based on $55 per resident.
In addition, a bid of $2,222 from Chris Scott on a trust property at 430 W. B Street was accepted.
Action on changing the speed limits on Highway 222 within the city limits was tabled after hearing from Joe Bejar of Texas Department of Transportation that the Childress office could do a survey, but there was always the possibility that the state could even raise the limits instead.
Police Chief Chris Mendoza provided an update on his search for a new officer and also mentioned that there had been a small peaceful protest staged for the Minnesota man killed when in police custody.
City Manager David Trevino indicated that he had been busy with the repairs to the city swimming pool, but would send reports to the council on actions being taken to enforce the city’s ordinances.
